Definitely, if I'm on diet.. It's a proper and best way to stay on diet and not to offend the person who invited me to the dinner party.
I also agree that yes, you can eat whatever you please. I often just eat vegan where I go, and the way I see it is: if they are offended, that is their problem. Often, whoever I am with knows that I eat certain ways and since I respect how they eat, they should respect how I eat.
No. To be honest, I cannot eat salad. It's cold, it's leafy, it's not a meal. I'm not a rabbit. If a meal, not including breakfast, does not have meat, I'm concerned and will find something else. Give me real food!
I couldn't eat the salads if they didn't have chicken, shrimp, or steak in them. I've just gotten into this veggie thing and I'm trying to avoid eating too much bread. I don't always eat salad. Last night I had ravoli with chicken.
When I receive a dinner invite, if it is from someone who has not known me long, I am sure to inform them I am a vegetarian, so I won't feel awkward,and they won't be resentful that I only picked around the "main dish."
However, if salad is the only thing to eat, I will eat it and happily, as well as the vegetables and whatever starch might be served.
A traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner is a perfect example of how possible it is to eat "around" the main, featured dish; there are so many other things served that you can certainly stuff yourself without touching the turkey and gravy.
