So if the first sentence of the question were changed to "To get the free dessert, one must order either an entree or
a salad," would that trigger the special either/or construction that I was trying to use? Whereas the sentence I tried to use it on said "they can" as opposed to "must"? Also since the construction is in the necessary condition?
You have that correct. It is the matter of "can" vs "must," so well done. If I understand your second question correctly, the special either/or construction can appear in either the sufficient or necessary. There are no restrictions on that. Thanks for the follow up.
