a. The salad options - Caesar, mixed greens, spinach, and cucumber - were all delectable and inviting salads, - Correct Option
b. Each of the salad options - Caesar, mixed greens, spinach, and cucumber - were delectable and inviting salads - Wrong, Each should have was as verb
c. Caesar, mixed greens, spinach, and cucumber - each of the salad options - were delectable and inviting - Wrong, Each should have was as verb
d. Delectable and inviting salads - Caesar, mixed greens, spinach, and cucumber - each a salad option was - Awkward construction, each a salad was
e. Delectable and inviting salads - Caesar, mixed greens, spinach, and cucumber - every one of the salad options were - every one should be in context of persons usually, and it also requires singular verb.

@fluke, in my opinion, the question is correct, noun vs. noun, so I don't think it should be 's.

Yeah. But, comparing "salad options" with "fare" is not logical.

Guess, the sentence intended to compare the "salad options" in the current place with the "salad options" in the buffet fare, but failed.

If we turn a deaf ear to that issue, "A" should be the answer.

I think Buffet fare means buffet menu, another type of list, so it should be logical.

Dictionary.com
fare: (Cookery) a range of food and drink; diet; Food and drink;

Yet, I feel "salad options" can't be compared with "the list of options OR even food"

Salad options in place A were better than the food in place B.
OR
Salad options in place A were better than the list of foods in place B.
Awkward.

Salad options in place A were better than the salad options among foods available in place B.
OR
Salad options in place A were better than the salad options in the list of food in place B.
OR
Salad options in place A were better than those in place B.
OR
Salad options in place A were better than place B's.

Went with A because

B and C did not agree with each.
D had a salad and salads did not make sense
E was faulty as well.

I thought it was B. But after the explanation provided, agree that it should be A.
