You have more in common with the leafy base you prefer in your daily greens than you think. Don’t worry, though: Your salads aren’t boring and neither are you. See what your preference says about you below.

Mixed Greens

You like variety! You’d never wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row and you’re constantly looking for new recipes to work into your weeknight meals. People love hanging out with you because they never know what you’re going to say. You might say you’re a mixed bag (in the best possible way, of course!).

Like this Mediterranean green, you really come to life in late spring and early summer. You’re always ready to put those bulky sweaters away and break out the summer dresses. That said, you’re not fussy and you’ll go along with just about every situation — so long as you have your espresso and dark chocolate (a holdover from your year abroad in Rome). You also have a peppery kick and a yen for adventure. Look out, world!

You like to think of yourself as healthy, but odds are, you’ve ended up with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s in bed during some point in the last week and you’re just as likely to order a burger as you are to order a salad when you’re out to dinner. Moderation in all things, right? You’re also a super-loyal pal who’s not about to go the way of fly-by trends and you’ve got backbone, too.

Green juice and SoulCycle are cool, but you’ve been on the healthy train long before either started getting trendy. You love to wake up in the morning with a mug of hot lemon water, and your favorite way to zen out is with your favorite podcasts on your commute. You’re all about giving back to your community, and on most weekends you can be found walking local shelter dogs or stocking a food pantry. You’re highly engaged in civic debates on your Facebook, and you think a passion for your beliefs is the sexiest thing about a person.

You’re the one your friends go to when they want to know if an outfit looks good on them or if this new restaurant is worth the trip. You’ve been to Iceland (naturally) and your Instagram is almost professional-level. You don’t really follow the trends because you tend to set them. But you’re never pretentious about it — and that’s why so many people like you so much.

Iceberg Lettuce

You’re more likely to hit the dive bar than the cool new enoteca, and that’s just fine by you. It annoys you when people use the word basic as a pejorative because you see no shame in keeping things simple. Your house is decorated with pictures of your friends and family, and your style is classic. Jeans and sneakers are the perfect dress code for just about anywhere you’d be interested in going.
