How to specify what something is made from/of
As I understand it, a wooden plank is "une planche DE bois" because it is made entierly from wood, while a tomato soup is "une soupe À LA tomate" because it has other ingredients as well.
But in the most recent writing challenge we had "et comme plat principal, j’aimerais la salade DE chèvre chaud". Surely, a salad has several ingredients, so why is it not ".. salade AU chèvre chaud" ?
