Borei Pri HaAdama: Salads

Say borei pri ha'adama on vegetable salad.
Note The fore-blessing of borei pri ha'adama also covers salad toppings and additions that by themselves require a different blessing, such as:
  • Borei pri ha'eitz for a sprinkling of pine nuts, cashews, apple slices, or raisins, or
  • Borei minei mezonot or ha'motzi for bread croutons. 
Reason Since these toppings and additions are subordinate to the main salad, you do not say the individual blessings; you only say borei pri ha'adama.
