    Re: have ______ with some ketchup.

    This is a cultural, not a language, question. You might eat pork with ketchup if it was particularly dry and tasteless, but French fries are the most common use of the condiment.

    Spaghetti is commonly served in a tomato-based sauce, so there would be no need to add another tomato-based condiment.

    And I've never heard of anyone using ketchup on salad, though I suppose it's possible. It's a little sweet for covering vegetables.
