|“||Two... sa-lads. Never heard of it. I got to stay hip. I don’t want to end up like silly old Squidward, but what in the name of Davy Jones' locker is a sa-lad?||”|
A salad is a food consisting only of tomato and lettuce. It is served at the Kuddly Krab in the episode "Bossy Boots." Before it is served there, Mr. Krabs opens a salad bar as a gimmick to get customers in the episode "Culture Shock."
Role in series
SpongeBob is ordered to make two salads. Pearl makes one by removing everything from two Krabby Patties except the tomato and lettuce. This shocks SpongeBob, who has apparently never seen a salad before. Even though he is brokenhearted after destroying a couple of Krabby Patties, he sadly brings them to the customers, who appear to be sad too.
Larry is seen about to eat a salad, only to be stopped when Squidward shows him one of his paintings, causing Larry's eyes to get lit on fire.
Role in SpongeBob Moves In!
Salad appears as a food in the Krusty Krab, where it has the same appearance as its "Bossy Boots" form. It needs one head of lettuce and one tomato in order to be made. It takes 45 seconds to create, gives seven happiness when collected from the Krusty Krab, and gives 13 coins when fed to a customer.
- Mystery eats Mr. Krabs' money from his safe in the episode "My Pretty Seahorse," mistaking it for salad.
- SpongeBob calls the salads "sal-lads" as a running gag in the episode "Bossy Boots."
