fabulous salad near union square?
Sort of along the lines of a salad and certainly dinner-worthy would be a falafel salad from Maoz. Basically they give you a few falafel, some eggplant and hummus in a bowl and you go to town and fill the rest up with a selection of fresh, roasted and/or pickled vegetables. I often get one when I want something light but still filling. Oh and it's like $7.
