Garlic croutons, shaved Spanish manchego el trigal cheese. Side $8.99
The Old Clam House, San Francisco CA
This Casesar was not very impressive. It was over dressed and there were hardly any croutons to be found. Such a disappointing start to a meal…
Farmanova beet, arugula, crescenza. $16
Jardiniere, San Francisco CA
I liked this salad enough, but it was more of a leafy green salad with some bread thrown in than an actual bread salad. I liked the flavors, but I felt a little misled from the menu description. Definitely wouldn’t be on my list of things I have to try before I die.

Daily vegetable salads. Mesibah menu $53 per person
Zahav, Philadelphia PA
I couldn’t believe that they brought all of this out as part of the starters! Omg, there was SO much, and they were all really different and delicious! I don’t remember them all, but I remember liking the beets a lot.
Asian salad, bean sprouts, pickled vegetables, jalapeno, scallion oil, crispy shallots, chopped peanuts, fish sauce. $8.75
Asian Box, San Francisco CA
I love the flavors of their boxes, but they’re just not filling for me especially when it’s salad instead of rice. This time around, the lemongrass pork was a bit on the dry side. I’m glad that I got the fried shallots though – they tasted good.
Blue cheese, hard poached egg, tomato, avocado-champagne vinaigrette. $24
Barking Frog, Woodinville WA
Now this is my kind of salad! What’s not to love? You’ve got crab, prawns, bacon, eggs, blue cheese, and avocado. I’m in heaven! Even though I wasn’t feeling it at first, the service was actually really friendly (although M.I.A. at times).
Tuscarora Farms lettuce, avocado puree, diced cucumber, harissa vinaigrette, pickled shallots, toasted caraway seeds crumb. Tasting menu $95
Volt, Frederick MD
Maybe I’m just not a salad person, but this dish was lost on me. I guess I can appreciate the fresh ingredients and the techniques used to create all the components, but I still wasn’t satisfied eating this salad. To each his own…
Cheddar chive buttermilk biscuit. This was SO good! I could live off these. 🙂
Lettuce with avocado-ranch dressing, tomato-chile tortilla bowl, black beans, jack cheese, jalapenos, sour cream, salsa and diced chicken. $12.95
Harvey’s, San Francisco CA
This is more like a chicken taco salad bowl than a chicken tostada, but I’m not really going to argue with what Harvey’s wants to call it. It was marginal.
