Studying is already making me fat, and there are still more than 2 weeks to go, plus all the soul food and tacos that I endure for this blog lately aren’t helping. It’s gotten to the point where I actually crave salad sometimes. Does anyone have any suggestions for good ones? Here’s what I know:
I actually like the salads at Cosmic. I was in denial that they could be good, but now the chicken salad is my favorite thing on the menu. Something about the dressing is different and good (it’s pretty vinegar-y) and they always seem fresh.
Toast‘s salad is simple but delicious. Has interesting, peppery greens and great cheese.
The Federal’s special salad is usually good (of course!), and tends to have a good (that is, low) ratio of greens to other (fattening) stuff. Same goes for Alivia’s spinach and arugula salads (not too healthy, that is) which are also a pretty nice price, considering the good stuff on them.
I don’t like Green Tango much. I’ve gotten too many salads there with bitter old spinach and dried out beans, etc.
What am I missing?
