I think it's hugely important not to make food an issue. Your child is so very young. But, you're also not a short order cook. I wouldn't intentionally make things he doesn't like but, I also wouldn't make separate meals.
But, in your salad example, I think it would unfair to not make him a separate meal if you know you're preparing something he doesn't like. And really, a salad for dinner isn't kid friendly at all - my kids are the best eaters I know and they wouldn't eat a salad for dinner. Do you really just eat salad for dinner?
... we can more or less forget about him eating anything but the starch if we serve him a balanced meal at the table. ...
That doesn't change your perspective at all? ... And future eating patterns, which for me is the most important issue. ...
Tell me a little bit more about yourself, if you don't mind. You say you are a former fussy eater. No longer, not at all? How did things change, over what time period? How did your family handle your fussy eating, and how did it influence things? ...
