Our Favorite Salads in Atlanta

Real talk: salads can be hit or miss, and it only takes a few misses to write them off all together. To be fair, salads aren’t super exciting to begin with. Generally regarded as bland and unfulfilling, they’re ignored by both consumers and kitchens. But it doesn’t have to be this way. In order to break the feedback loop of negative salad experiences, someone’s got to show love to the ones that really deserve it. 

For us, salads that stand out are the ones that show thoughtfulness. They’re playful and surprising with bright flavors that pop through contrasting textures. Good salads are ones that remain interesting bite after bite, resulting in a sum that is greater than its individual parts. With the right care, salads can be one of the most dynamic options on a menu. We’ve compiled a list of our top favorite Atlanta salads that go beyond the ho-hum standard and have us constantly craving them.
