Including boring salads and decent chain restaurant salads.
Little Market Salad at Joey
Garden Salad at Stack (burger patty on the side for an additional $4) decent garden salad, but I wish they'd make the dressings in house.

vegans/fans of delicious salads should try hibiscus on Augusta street, they have a great salad of quinoa, sweet potato, lentils, beans, and a bunch of other ever changing stuff for under 8 bucks. It's definitely a meal more than a salad and is very good
i ate in the rom cafe out of necessity this week and actually had a fairly alright quinoa raisin kale with a citrus vinaigrette. not what I expected to find goin in there
I was impressed by the salads at the casual Holt's counter (where the staff serves the salads you choose, I'm not talking about the express pre-packaged salads), on the lower concourse of the Holt Renfrew Centre. The curried chicken with apple, the Middle Eastern salad with chickpeas, the kale/currant/parm/pine nut and the dill/egg/potato salad were all quite good. I like Holt's salads from the concourse level better than any recent take-out salads I've had at Whole Foods or Pusateri's. Prices are roughly the same as what I'd be paying at Whole Foods or Pusateri's.
I also like the splurge $19 salads at Holt's Cafe on the second floor of Holts.
Enjoyed the oft-recommended Caesar, with Spanish anchovy, at Jacobs.
Wonderful Dungeness crab, basil, grapefruit, pomegranate salad on the tasting menu at George a couple weeks ago. There's another Dungeness crab salad on the current menu.
Delicious two tone romaine salad with brioche croutons and marinated eel at Canoe.
