Looking for an incredible salad in Cambridge/Somerville
After yesterday's heavy Easter meal, I'm looking for a really good salad. The kind that is so good you are surprised, because salads are, in general, disappointing. (The salad should have some greens in it)
Some places that seem to deliver consistently great green salads: Oleana, Craigie St Bistro, Rendezvous at Central Square, Gargoyles, Salts.
Eastern Standard has a terrific salad with roasted beets. Also good: Upstairs on the Square, EVOO, Sel De La Terre, and Prezza
Edit - Just noticed you're looking for Cambridge/Somerville. Duh. Upstairs on the Square, EVOO, Gargoyles, Cambridge 1, Casablanca.
Za in Arlington has great standard salads on the menu as well as specials that are generally great as well -- loved the endive-based one last week.
The salads at Not Your Average Joe's (Acton, Watertown, Arlington, and Medford/Malden, but not so much in Lexington...service issues there) are fresh and large at a good price point, even if some of them are a little bit boring/overwrought.
They actually have some decent (and very large) salads at the S&S if you're loking for something low key.
