Salads for lunch - Tampa Bay
I would like to compile a list of some of the greatest places in the Tampa Bay area to grab a salad for lunch.
In Clearwater (where I work), we have Natures Food Patch. The salad bar is stocked full of wonderful organic veggies, soups, pasta etc plus they have some great homemade dressings.
I need more. Bestow upon me your knowledge.
I like Doc Greens on Neptune (in the same shopping center Moe's and Coldstone is in by Publix) in Tampa. They have a "make you own salad" thing that reminds me of the places I used to eat lunch at in NYC. Another place for good salads is Louis Pappas on Bay to Bay...I just ask for my greek salad with no potato salad.
Sweet Tomato's -- Dale Mabry just N of 275 -- HUGE salad bar, soups, pasta, etc.
Louis Pappas on Bay to Bay in Tampa and on N 4th St on St. Pete
Not sure about Tampa Bay locations, but both Whole Foods and Wild Oats markets have great salad bars with lots of organic/healthy stuff, tofu, grains, etc.
Other salad stops on South Dale Mabry include Wright's Gourmet - huge, fresh and priced right and Grillsmith (a regional chain), I think it is the Napa salad with tangy cranberries, walnuts, gargonzola and a generous serving!
