salad in Northridge

Hi there, i have a date in an hour and my date has requested somewhere with good salads. I live in Northridge, I would love any salad recommendations...

  1. Do you like Souplantation? If so, there's a location in Porter Ranch, on Rinaldi, between Porter Ranch Drive and Tampa Avenue, right near the 118 freeway exit at Porter Ranch Drive.

    I don't know if it has the right ambiance for a date though, as it is a salad bar.

    I like the salad bar at Gelson's too-- that's right across from the movie theatre at the Northridge Mall, in the same parking lot as DSW and Jamba Juice. Again, not much of a date ambiance there, but they do have nice patio seating in front of the store.

    I personally think Gelson's would be a nicer choice, although it's a little chilly today in Northridge. I prefer to go there when the sun is out and shining brightly.
