Your favorite place for a salad

I have been on a salad kick lately. What are some of your favorite places to get a salad and what kind of salad was it?

There is a salad at Manhattan Beach Brewing Company that I enjoy. I think it is called the Beach Club Salad.
I like the Chinese Chicken Salad at Dagwoods, in Venice.
There is a cobb salad at Tony P's in MDR that I liked, except it was a bit too salty. The Thai Crunch Salad at CPK is really good..and I like some of the salads at The Cheesecake Factory.

  1. i like most of the salads at 26 beach cafe.
    also, when i'm feeling gluttonous, i enjoy the full-size caesar salad at cheesecake factory.
    for persian salad, i like the shirazi salad at shamshiri.
    the crocodile cafe has a good salad made with candied pecans, blue cheese, and fresh pears.

    1. La Scala in Brentwood (and Beverly Hills) has a great chopped salad. You can have it with turkey or salami and possibly tuna. Shredded cheese, garbanzos, cucumber, tomatoe, etc. They will add or subtract whatever you want/don't want. Nice olive oil and vinegar dressing. It's very simple but famously good. They have other nice salads, too.


      Sammy's Woodfired Pizza in the Rolling Hills Plaza (in Torrance)has several really fresh, flavorful salads. My fav. is a chopped salad - comes with your choice of olives or sun dried tomates, shredded mozarella and a great basil vinagrette dressing. I keep hoping that they will open one up here in WLA. The original Sammy's is in San Diego. Several locations throughout So. Cal.


      1. I don't know how the sandwiches are, but I recently had an excellent salad at Cheviot Farms, a deli/market that sells some interesting things like honey made from pollen of different flowers.

        The salad was a simple spinach salad with blue cheese, candied pecans/walnuts, cranberries, and chicken tossed in a fat free honey mustard. Maybe I was just extremely hungry that day but that was one of the best salads I've had in a while.

        Cheviot Farms
        10433 National Blvd.
        Los Angeles, CA
        (310) 836-5333

        (Note - they're closed on Sundays)

        1. Love Greenstreet's Cornucopia: romaine, chicken, blue cheese crumbles, almond slices, cranberries, raisins, apple chunks, avocado; their famous Dianne and other salads are good, too.

          Others off the top of my head:
          CPK's spicy thai, pear/arugula, and waldorf; Cheesecake Factory's chinese chicken and hawaiian luau;
          Whole Food's spinach/strawberries and mediterranean;
          Any salad from The Farm, Le Pain Quotidien, and Cafe Surfas;
          Ford's Filling Station's smoked trout;
          Matsuhisa's, Nobu's, Sushi Roku, Woomi Sushi - sashimi salads;
          Any from Tesoro Trattoria;
          Angelini Osteria's beet, and skate;
          Moonshadow's and Ocean Ave. Seafood's beet salad;
          Spago's lobster cobb and salmon bbq;
          Literati II's pistachio and endive;
