About This Quiz

Are you overwhelmed by the choices at the salad bar or do you feel right at home? The things you choose to pile on top of your salad can tell us a lot of things about you. Most importantly, the way you make a salad can tell you how long you will live. 

As we build a salad together, you will be asked to choose everything from your lettuce type to your dressing to the kind of bowl you would need. Your ultimate salad is entirely up to you, but we promise to present a salad spread like you've never seen before. You will be so hungry by the time you finish finding out your life expectancy that you might blow your diet with just a little too much extra cheese. 

While we love to think of salads as being the healthiest of meal choices, you must make very wise choices to make it into your 90s! Loads of bacon bits and a few extra spoonfuls of dressing might not help you get there. Though, a few chia seeds and a couple of raisins might keep you on track. 

If you've wanted to know how long you'll make it, toss a salad with us! We'll let you know.
