I would say at least 2 oz per person if it is not main dish. If main dish maybe 4 oz per person.

Are you doing several salads? Remember to make a few that are vegan (no bacon, eggs) and Gluten free.

One large presentation salad which would be in a large bowl could be a classic Cobb Salad. https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSsuLpv_eiPLl8jEGnztmCcGq2xV0UUA3i_5-YFre0ByD7qIpLMxg

Pay attention the colors and order of the rows of items...so you bland colors next to bright colors. Avacado, Blue Cheese, Tomato, Turkey, Eggs, Bacon.
Serve the brown derby cobb salad dressing in a gravy boat..and put some tongs for guest to grab a bit.

I would do 3 heads iceberg; 3 heads romaine or 6 hearts of romaine and 2 bunches of spinach or 20-24oz baby spinach
