There's chicken salad and tuna salad. Why isn't there beef salad?

We really needed two chicken salad threads in 24 hours?

Why isn't there mouse flavor cat food? I see beef flavor and I've never seen a cat attack a cow so why not mouse flavor cat food? Or rat, frog, rabbit, bird?

In answer to your question, maybe the thought of chopped up beef with mayo is revolting?

Chicken and tuna are made into "salads" for sandwiches b/c they're lean meats & mayonnaise rounds things out.

Hamburgers (beef sandwiches) have about 20% fat or so. Thus, no need to make beef salad.

There's also beef / French dip sandwiches to mitigate lean, sliced beef.

Steak salad is wonderful with celery, avocados, cherry tomatoes. Arugula and a balsamic dressing.

In Italy you can order Carne Salada or Bresaola to accompany a salad if you like, both are beef, probably not a traditional way to eat it but if you're paying?

Neither are difficult to find here in the UK.

Hmm, the reason I don’t eat any of the various “salads,” such as chicken and ham is because I dislike mayonnaise. I bet a roast beef salad with a creamy horseradish in place of the mayo would be divine.

If I put lettuce on a hamburger, remove the bun and eat it with a knife and fork, is it a beef salad? I can drizzle vinaigrette over it, if that helps!

I like those high tea places that have egg salad and the eggs were soaked (bathed?) in tea, something like a Lapsang Souchong and then made into egg salad. I don’t know if there’s a special name for that or what. A nice sprig of dill or freshly chopped chives as a garnish on it is lovely as well.

Because leftover roast beef or steak takes the form of a slab that is easy to slice up for a sandwich, unlike canned tuma or bits of leftover chicken.

Chunk light tuna makes a far preferable tuna fish salad. It's made from different species than albacore, which is one of the most mercury-laden types of tuna. To me, canned albacore is both dry and somewhat tasteless, although fresh it makes decent sushi.

Egg salad, tuna salad and chicken salad are deli staples. Many delis have Jewish roots. You don't mix meat and dairy, hence no beef mixed up with mayonnaise.

I used to go to a Jewish deli that had individual mayo packets. They refused to put mayo on if you ordered a roast beef or pastrami sandwich with mayo.

R72 mayo has no dairy in it. But I can see some thinking it does, or thinking one might run the risk of somehow incorporating milk in some mayo-like thing so better be safe. R73, meat in this context is defined as kosher mammals, or something that can potentially be boiled in its mothers milk which is forbidden.

I'm not Jewish, but it didn't take much research to establish that there is no prohibition on eating mayonnaise with beef or any other kosher meat because eggs are not considered dairy (or meat, for that matter). . (Obviously ham salad is not kosher). There might be some sort of dressings that look somewhat like mayonnaise, such as ranch dressing, that would be forbidden at meat meals because they contain dairy products. If a non-Jewish person would be interested in trying to eat kosher, (very unlikely), he would start looking at labels for something called pareve. That word means that the food is neither meat nor dairy, and thus can be used either in a dairy meal or a meat meal. Most mayonnaise brands will have a pareve marking somewhere on their labels, particularly in areas of the country that have a sizeable Jewish population. More challenging is remembering not to have butter in a meal that has meat. That can be a problem if you are serving potatoes or bread, so it's important to have some sort of margarine with no dairy ingredients available in that sort of situation. Obviously you can't cook meat with butter or have any sort of cheese at a meat meal. But many margarines DO have dairy ingredients so again, so an observant Jew would have to look at labels very carefully. Fleischmans's margarine is an example of a non-dairy margarine.
