Cc In Restaurant Salad Dressings
0

6 posts in this topic

When I was waitress, we would get hungry because the shifts are long with no breaks. The servers at every restaurant I worked at would grab a crouton, dip it in the vat of salad dressing and eat it as a snack.

I had forgotten about this until recently. So last night I ate at Lucille's from their gluten free menu. I discreetly asked the waitress if they did that with the salad dressing and promised I wouldn't tell on her if she was truthful. And she admitted that yes, they do dip croutons in the dressing.

So I will be ordering oil and vinegar when eating out, even if they have gluten free dressing options.

You also have to be careful of spreads like Mayo, etc. because they slather it on the bread and dip the knife back in. Thankfully In N Out has little packets of their spread on the side.

That is absolutely disgusting! I can't even begin to imagine the nightmare of germs unless everyone doing this is washing their hands both before and after, which I know is not happening. If such things had happened at the restaurants I had worked at the people doing this would have promptly found themselves unemployed. Honestly less for the gross factor and more for the stealing factor but still, it's just wrong on a whole host of levels.

At any rate, good info to have.

Nobody was double dipping so its not as gross as it sounds, but still yes it's gross. It happened at every place I worked at though.

I didn't imagine double dipping. I imagined waitresses with arms full of dirty dishes putting them down then grabbing a crouton. Refill a guests drink, grab a crouton. Or grabbing one, popping it their mouth then grabbing a second. It's just ewwwwww, and exactly as gross as it sounds. (at least to me)

When I was a chef I also saw this sort of thing with my chili and crackers. One waitress in particular was a real problem with this even though I told her not to do it she would still dip when my back was turned. Made me really mad since I would have given her a small dish if she just asked. I may be paranoid but because of that I won't order chili at any restaurant.
