perfect summer lunch: salad
And better yet, one I didn’t have to prepare.
True story: I find many restaurant salads and salad bars disappointing, if not unappetizing. I want to eat healthy and vegetarian when I’m out, and the salad bar or menu should be a haven of health happiness. Alas. Limp iceberg, soggy tomatoes, carb-heavy croutons, and artery-clogging dressings seem to be the standard fare. I’ll just have French fries, please. They’re vegan, right?
But fortunately, there’s The New Yokel Market, with the best salad bar around – fresh, healthy, vegan/vegetarian-friendly, delicious. Real greens! Real vegetables, and lots of them! Beans, nuts, and seeds! Daniel and I are regulars for lunch, and we usually pick up a few groceries while we’re at it.
P.S. My other favorite restaurant salad is at Caliente, where you build yours from a selection of delicious ingredients (and real, green lettuce).
