Best Salads in Berkeley

Does anyone have a favorite place (that has some variety) to get dinner salads in Berkeley? I just can't think of any!
jupiter, on shattuck, has a pretty diverse menu, great wood fired pizza, and a decent cesar salad. wait times can be long, so if you know what you want, order it right when you arrive. a cesar sounds nice for a hot, sunny day - they have outdoor seating. i can't imagine it's too warm in berkeley today though, best sit inside.

Second the rec for Eccolo, though they might look at you sideways if you tried to just order a salad for dinner. Their lunch and brunch menu has a selection of excellent entree salads. My favorite is the roasted salmon with fennel, beets, and garden lettuces.
I adore the salads at Pizzaiolo, though they are hardly entree sized.
Very hard to beat Intermezzo's salad (although they put a whole bottle of dressing on it if you're not careful). But Cafe Gratitude's salad with avocado and citrus dressing is exceptional too.
