Best Salad in the City

Had the Salad of Grilled Asparagus, Artichoke, White Beans, Tomato-Onion Relish and Pine Nuts at Tria (18th street) today and was blown away (and I'm a devote carnivore). What are your favorite salads in the city today?

  1. I like the Ensalada de Jamon (Serrano ham, figs, cabrales, and spiced almonds) at Amada and the warm salad with wilted greens, pancetta, and a lightly scrambled egg that used to be on the menu at Vetri. It isn't on the current menu, but I bet they would make it if you asked.

    1. Not as fancy as the two already mentioned but I like the Gorgonzola salad at Fiorino, with candied walnuts and apples.

      1. Tria makes great salads. I love their duck salad with pistachios and cherries.

        I also love Ela's kale salad with mustard dressing.

        1. (Good) salad is one of my favorite foods. There are really a TON of places that do them well, but 2 of my (slightly surprising) favorites in casual places are any of the choices at either Cantina (Dos Segudos or Los Caballitos) and Khyber.

          1. re: PhillyA

            Which salad in particular do you like at the Khyber?

          2. Little Fish's changing salad line up is quite refreshing - they are lighthanded with salt. Meritage is also worth a look. I was pleasantly surprised by the bibb and beet salads at North 3rd. At Cantina Dos Segundos, avoid the papaya salad and the arugula salad dressed with pumpkin-seed dressing. Neither had zip and both were underseasoned.
