Salad is a nearly perfect lunch. Not too heavy, not too light. You won’t be falling asleep at your desk because you’re too full, but your stomach won’t be grumbling at that 3:00 meeting either. Salads offer tons of variety for different tastes and they can be a good healthy option, too! There are lots of great salads on menu all throughout the city, but let’s take a look at some of the best ones out there!
A southside favorite, The Sequiota Bike Shop is much more than just a place to get some gear for your Ozark Greenways rides. It’s also an awesome artisan restaurant! The Strawberry Kale salad is delicious. It features baby kale, romaine, fresh strawberries, toasted pecans and mozzarella. Pair it up with a half sandwich too if you’re looking for some more sustenance. Sequiota Bike Shop has a good variety of dressings for this salad, too.
This one might get you pretty full. It’s a 5 ounce sirloin, served with an icebergwedge, smoked bacon, spicy pecans. If that’s not enough for ya, they’ll throw in some asparagus, gorgonzola, and some tasty warm polenta croutons, all with bleu cheese dressing to drape over the top. It’s so good, but you’ll need to come hungry!
If you’re in the mood for something Cali-style, swing by the Grotto. Another hearty salad, the steak Gongonzola salad isn’t a side salad, it’s an entree. On a bed of mixed greens you’ll get cinnamon pecans, gorgonzola, caramelized and tomato drizzled in a light Balsamic vinegar.
