Salads are classified as cold dishes with various vegetables, fruits and ingredients, mixed with oil, vinegar, and in some cases, mayonnaise. They are served as side dishes or side dishes, and their many varieties of preparation are scattered throughout the world.

The word salad comes from the Latin salata (from herba salata), which means salty herbs. Everything seems to indicate that its first recipe originated in Ancient Rome , being the Romans and Greeks the ones who began to serve vegetables seasoned with salt and oil. The recipe transcended for years, and in the Renaissance this dish was the favourite.

The White Salad, potato salad or mayo potatoes , as it is also known, has potato and mayonnaise as its main ingredient, among others, and it is this combination that gives it the white color from which its name derives. Despite being a salad, it has a high level of calories (fat), so its continuous consumption is not recommended.

Currently in our country, there are numerous restaurants where it is prepared and served with a more sophisticated touch. Its bittersweet or sweet flavor, the result of the preserved fruits that are added, makes this dish a delight for the palate.
