A Great Salad In Baltimore?

With the warm weather upon us, where would be the best place in the Baltimore area for a real great salad for lunch or dinner.

  1. There was a thread last summer on the topic of salads in Baltimore. It took a bit of looking to find because the search feature on the site is not the best, but I hope this links to it:

    If it doesn't link directly, warthog posted it in June of 2006. Also that was a year ago, so there might be more recent additions? Anyone?

    1. try Dogwood Deli on 36th in Hampden. Great salads, sourced from local ingredients when they can.

      1. This is hardly a novel suggestion, but Atwater's in Belvedere Market is always outstanding. Many different varieties, all nicely put together and delicious. Throw in a cup of soup or half of a sandwich...that's what I'm talking about.

        1. I've enjoyed the "Big Dog" salad at the Thirsty Dog. It is topped with grilled chicken, smoked gouda, and veggies. I liked that it came with 4 small slices of their white pizza.

          Pazo has some nice salads that are more of a side salad and might not be enough on their own.

          I have only had their sandwiches, but the non lettuce salads at DiPasquales have always looked good to me and I always see people orderin large containers of them. To get the most out of the nice weather I like to order it to go and sit in Patterson Park.

          And of course there are the chains California Pizza Kitchen and Cheesecake factory which have some tasty (large) salads.

            The mixed seafood salad at DiPasquales is scrumptuous! Great seafood, lemons, capers, yum!

          2. I like the tuna salad on mixed greens at Donna's. Not the usual mayo-celery-pickle mix, but instead has chopped kalamatas and capers. If you like salty, it's very tasty.

              I totally agree on the Donna's tuna salad. But I'd go the route of the Mediterranean Salad. It has hummus, pita, fontina cheese, olives and huge chunks of raw veggies and lettuces. And then I add the tuna scoop on the side. As said previously very tasty. And a huge amount of food.
