Make your own salad in Carroll Gardens?
I just moved to Carroll Gardens and I work from home. I enjoy going out to grab make-your-own salads but I haven't found any places nearby (I know of some in Brooklyn Heights, but none further south). Any suggestions?
The F train bagel place located way at the end of Smith and 9th street has that. Can't think of anywhere else.
Henry's on the corner of Union and Henry does a decent salad, but they have limited options for ingredients.
melinda - glad you enjoyed chopchop. i have too, though i find the ingredients i select always manage to add up to a shamefully expensive toss-your-own.
and larryb: i must respectfully disagree, but please know that it really is most respectfully, as i always enjoy your posts immensely and think we must eat out at many of the same spots - while nectar doesn always have the ingredients that your fully stocked hale&hearty might, nectar does do make your own salads. you can choose your own ingredients, then choose meat and/or cheeses, and dressings. again, it does differ in that you don't get to see the ingredients sitting in dishes as you do in other make-your-own places, but it doesn't mean that you can't. my personal fave at nectar is: cucumber, hearts of palm, avocado, beets, red onion, carrots, grilled chicken in their tahini dressing.
