The source for all things peanut butter has a couple of new flavors: The Bee’s Knees and Mighty Maple. I love honey and maple syrup, for different occasions, but both are the perfect complement to peanut butter.

Not in town but I made a good one the other day. Head of Boston lettuce, artichoke hearts, and toasted pine nuts. Dressing was just olive oil and lemon with a touch of Turkish crushed red pepper.

I recently enjoyed Fig & Olive’s, signature FIG & OLIVE SALAD, which is light and satisfying, but Blue Ribbon Bakery’s MARKET SALAD is delicious and a perfectly satisfying meal.

mmm. The Tokyo Turkey at Cafe Medina – smoked turkey, bean sprouts, toastd almonds, fresh red pepper strips all over baby lettuce with sesame-soy dressing.

For a midtown lunch, skip the corporate chains and head to Caffe Pepe Rosso in the Grand Central Dining Concourse for any of their fine Insalate. The apples, arugula and Gorgonzola is a simple classic.

The Southern Chicken Salad at Clyde’s:
Spinach, juicy fried chicken, candied pecans, cranberries and mangoes. Yummy!

the golden beet salad at the ronnybrook milk bar. only had it once (labor day weekend last year), but have not been able to stop thinking about it since. golden beets, thinly sliced radished and coach farm goat cheses with a mint vinaigretette. simple. refreshing. incredible. not to mention that you are in close proximity to milkshakes. that always helps to sway my decision ;)

I’d have to go with a homemade salad with mixed lettuce, avocado, black beans, tomatoes, corn and some cheese. The homemade dressing I’ve been a fan of lately is olive oil, honey, lime and cilantro.

Otherwise, Extra Virgin’s warm pistachio crusted goat cheese salad is pretty yummy!

The fried chicken breast with endive and blue cheese salad at Elephant and Castle on Greenwich Avenue. I keep going back and ordering it to exclusion of all other items. But make sure their fryer has been repaired before you go.

The Salad Frisee with Blue Cheese, Bacon and Poached Egg at Artisanal Bistro on Park Avenue sounds magnifique!


Jul 11, 08:31 AM

Insalata Verde at I Trulli. Market greens, grape tomatoes, shards of fresh parmesan, a drizzle of sherry-shallot vinaigrette. Simple perfection, memorable and a beauty plated up.


Jul 11, 08:38 AM

I crave the Gold Gym salad at Serafina: grilled chicken, mixed greens, sundried tomatoes, raisin, pine nuts, pesto dressing…yum! I’ve also just learned the secret of the Beef Soba Salad at Soba Nippon.


Jul 11, 09:10 AM

the yellow fin tuna salad w/mango dressing at monkey bar. i hate salads but i had no problem killing this one


Jul 11, 09:13 AM

I am a “plain Jane”. My favorite salad comes from my grandmother’s recipe, just romaine, cucumbers, red onions, oil and vinegar…some asiago if we’re feeling adventurous!

Hand’s down the best salad(s) are found at Le Pain de Quotidien, which are located all over Manhattan. Salad Vegeterian is consistently my favorite, but I even go for the Chicken Cobb Salad now and then (and I’m not really a bacon lover either!) Specials like the Arugula with fresh goat cheese and pine nuts are seasonal of course and provide a refreshing new choice now and then! Oh not to mention all organic and comes with freshly baked baquette slices! YUMMY!


Jul 11, 10:15 AM

I don’t have a particular favorite. I love all interesting salads with anything but ordinary items, especially exotic fruit or cheese.


Jul 11, 10:23 AM

Milano Market in the Upper West Side packs a pretty nice punch when it comes to quick salads for lunch during work. For a decent and fresh salad, not to mention a really solid dining experience, try Dovetail’s local bitter lettuce salads.

In a generally ho-hum culinary landscape, I regularly enjoyed the gorgonzola salad at Moon River Pizza in Jacksonville, FL (where, thank goodness, I no longer live!). What makes this salad so special and delicious is a mystery to me, but SAINTS ALIVE! its like crack salad. Sooo good! As far as I can tell, its just romaine, gorgonzola crumbles, walnuts, sliced white onion, tomato and a simple (made by sysco?) vinaigrette. I live in Seattle now, but I still think about that salad!


Jul 11, 10:31 AM

The frisee au lardons at Balthazar. Crisp frisee, plump lardons, and croutons made from their fabulous baguette, all tossed with a light yet flavorful vinaigrette and topped with a perfectly poached egg.


Jul 11, 10:33 AM

i’m not a huge salad eater but the cobb salad at ej’s luncheonette is one of the few that’s hearty enough to constitute a meal for me.

The shaved fennel, red onion and apple salad at Market Table. Also the chopped salad at Pietro’s.


Jul 11, 10:54 AM

my favorite salad is one I make myself with fresh ingredients from the union square greenmarket

Fried chicken salad with stilton cheese which I have been having at Noho Star restaurant for the past 20 years.

club salad at houston’s.


Jul 11, 11:28 AM

The baby beet salad at Cafe Luxembourg is fantastic. The citrus dressing brings out the earthy flavor of the beets.


Jul 11, 03:51 PM

Fennel and arugula!! yum


Jul 11, 04:34 PM

Any spinach salad w/ candied pecans or walnuts for texture, red onions, crispy bacon, and champagne vinaigrette!!


Jul 12, 09:32 AM

I have to say that, in the culinary wasteland that is the Philadelphia Main Line, my Salade Frisee made with thinly sliced red onion, crispy-smokey lardons and homemade garlic-peppercorn croutons, then topped with oeufs en meurette (poached in red wine), served with my homemade Dijon vinaigrette is the best anyone can find around here. My Personal Chef clients request it over and over!
