Shaved pickled beetroot, roast beetroot, candied walnuts, Drunken Nanny Ash goat’s cheese, lime and vanilla dressing $19 NZD
Oyster & Chop, Auckland NZ
Mmm, I loved this beet dish! It was so delicious and there was an amazing variety of flavors and textures. I especially liked the goat cheese spread underneath and the pea shoots on top.
Chicken salad, boiled egg, blue cheese, bacon, tomato, black olives, cucumber. $8.95
Remlinger Farms, Carnation WA
This salad was very basic, and not that good. The ingredients were prolly low quality and the chicken salad was pretty bland. Hmm…
Sauteed calamari, cucumber, Kalamata olives, roasted red pepper, pickled red onion, lime vinaigrette. $14
Novy Restaurant, San Francisco CA
I liked this salad. It tasted bright and delicious, and it was definitely on the healthy side. The calamari were nice and tender and not rubbery. Yum!
Orange, white balsamic. Tasting menu $87
Petit Crenn, San Francisco CA
This salad was really refreshing and bright! It was simple and beautifully assembled. Noms!
Sauteed crispy catfish in spicy chili paste, with beans and basil. Served with rice and salad. $14
Banana House, San Francisco CA
The price has gone up a dollar since last time. I do like this fried catfish though. I wish it was a little more spicy, but I really like the flavors.
Lamb gyro and chicken with basmati rice, pita, and salad. $10
Halal Cart, San Francisco CA
I still love this combo plate for lunch. It’s definitely on the heavy side especially with all the white sauce and if you eat all of it at once. The hot sauce has been inconsistent the few times I’ve gone though. It was really hot to start with, but now it’s been kinda on the mild side. I like it when it’s on the hotter side.
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. 🙂
