BB, you need to bottle your food enthusiasm. I'll be first in line to pick up a gallon or 2!!! :D
Generally speaking, salads are a side dish for the family. I pack slightly more elaborate salads for school/work lunches most days, along with a sandwich, fruit, etc. Dinner side-dish salads are a basic mix (greens, carrots, celery, others as available) with some add-ons (olives, marinated artichokes, cheese shred or chunk, etc) set out for folks to use. They're more likely to eat salad that's "customized", it seems.
Once in a while, particularly during a hot spell, salads are a main dish item for family meals. I don't often make non-greens salads (potato, macaroni, etc)...I enjoy them but just never get around to it. We get our fix at pot lucks & church picnics! :P
