CPK Salads

I've been here many times and used to love coming here for their BBQ Chicken salad back in the day when that was their star dish besides the pizzas. They have expanded their menu these past few years, and recently added some new salads. A couple of days ago I got take out and went online to their website to check out their menu. They had pictures of most of their salads and most looked delicious. I ordered the Grilled Veggie with Rosemary Chicken on it based on how yummy the pictured looked. When I got home and actually saw the thing, I was quite disappointed. The picture showed mounds of grilled veggies. The one I got had a things of each veggie (definitely a lot smaller in reality).

What does everyone else think of the salads from here?

  1. The salads are just okay. I tend to like very basic salads and i usually do enjoy the grilled veggie salad with grilled chicken. I also really like the thai crunch salad! Its SO good! I once tried the mediterranean salad (its fairly new) and did not really enjoy it that much.

    1. Years ago I could make a nice meal out of a CPK chopped salad and some of their bread. I think the salads have shrunk over the years.

      1. Their salads are disappointing - nothing special about them, very plain and rather bland.

        I try to stick to the pizza, but if I want something with some lettuce in it, I order the lettuce wraps - those are pretty decent.

        1. I used to like their applewood bacon and gorgonzola chopped salad, but it's not on the menu anymore.
          I recently tried the salad that has pears, candied walnuts, blue cheese, and a mustard dressing. It was actually really good, but I had them make it with romaine instead of mixed greens. It's simple, but that's how I like salad to be.

            I love that salad, but I get it w/ goat cheese instead of the blue. i usually get a half size w/ a cup of the smashed split pea & barley soup.

          2. i still like the BBQ chicken salad - you just need extra dressing. and it is big enough if you order the full size. my husband & i actually split the full size for lunch.
