Trying to make a salad for 125 people

We are having a ladies meeting expecting 125 people and we wanted to have a salad with chicken on top grilled. Something like a cobb salad, and then we were going to serve a bake potato bar, bread and dessert. But, can you help with getting the salad together. I really do not know how much to get to put together that salad. Thanks so much for your help.

You will need 2 lines, or a double sided line to serve this many people.

If you are planning this salad as an entree size serving, about 1 1/2 cups lettuce, then the only question is, is this also going to be on a salad bar, or is the plate going to be at each place? I can give you the numbers for either but they are different. More info, please.

Do you plan to have ham? chopped egg? cheese? and if yes on cheese, do you want both blue and swiss? Dressings on the table or at the bar? Do you plan traditional iceberg lettuce, or some kind of mix? What about tomatoes, cukes, bell peppers, celery?

Also, if the salad and potato are on the same bar, people will mix up the toppings between the salad and potato, and I can help you with that, but it does affect amounts.

Write back.

Guiselle, is this for 125 people? Wll they be preplated or serve yourself, as the two choices use different amounts. What is the rest of the menu? It affects the salad portion. Write back.
