Response: It will depend on whether you are serving more than one salad. If you serve only one salad, then plan on having at least 120 servings, perhaps more because some people take larger portions. If you are serving more than one salad, some guests will take a bit of each, so plan on about 80 to 90 servings of each salad. Salads are a good, low-cost buffet filler.
When you say 'pounds,' that would indicate that you are serving a heavy salad, such as potato or macaroni, and not green salad. You will need to figure out how many servings are in a pound, then multiply. I do agree that 88 pounds is a huge amount of salad. I would guess that quantity would equal about 350 servings.
