Definitely a separate bowl. I don't know if you do this too but in Europe we usually eat salad for starters (not just in the restaurant but also at home), so it's not really a question anyway. We also have separate salad plates, which are smaller than the normal plates (there are also separate dessert plates obviously). As sometimes who is a foodie and loves to cook, I consider it styleless to have your salad on the same plate. My dad calls this "army-style" because in the military (it's mandatory in my country), he told me they always put everything very lovelessly just on one plate. First spaghetti with tomato sauce, salad on top (so that the salad sauce mixes with the tomato sauce mmmh yummy) and then the dessert on top of that. It's almost like you're just feeding your dog or a bunch of pigs.1
