The Six Best SLC Salads

Food & DrinkJesse Walker6 Comments

Salad, a term derived from the Latin sal (salt), which yielded the form salata, 'salted things' such as the raw vegetables eaten in classical times with a dressing of oil, vinegar or salt. The word turns up in Old French as salade and then in late 14th century English as salad or sallet." - Oxford Companion to Food

Here are some of my favorites to crunch on in Salad Lake City:

The Mediteranean @ Oasis Cafe
Soba Salad @ Sage's Cafe
BLT Salad @ Trio
Asian Salmon Salad @ The Pub at Trolley Square
Roasted Pork Tenderloin Salad @ Fiddlers Elbow
Three Salad Salad @ Caputos
Roasted Beet Salad @ The Tin Angel
The Wedge @ Spencer's Steak House (stinkiest blue cheese ever!)
The Spinach Salad @ Stoneground (best house made vinaigrette)

Update! Jamie Gadette from CityWeekly had some great additions:

Blackened Tilapia Salad @ Squatters
Seaweed Salad w/ Squid @ Takashi
Rastafarian Salad @ Blue Plate Diner
Larb Tofu Salad @ Chanon Thai
