Best Salt Lake City Salads

Monday August 8, 2011
Salad in Salt Lake CityHot summer weather combined with inviting restaurant patios, motivated me to seek out the best salads in Salt Lake.  After much sampling around town, I found these to be my two favorites:

Verdura Chopped Salad by Vinto Pizzeria (pictured left)- mixed greens, quinoa, beets, butternut squash, tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, pumpkin seeds, edamame, red onion, and a light lemon-basil vinaigrette.  This is a hearty salad with dense beans and grains and I especially love all of the vegetables; they are chopped up really small making the dish easy to enjoy.

Raspberry Walnut Salad with Goat Cheese by Gourmandise- mixed greens topped with raspberries, candied walnuts, red peppers and crumbled goat cheese, served with a house made apricot vinaigrette. The generous amounts of goat cheese on this salad will bring a smile right to your face, or at least it did mine. Also, I like that Gourmandise served their dressing on the side, allowing you to choose how much you like on your salad. After a taste of this apricot vinaigrette, I knew I'd be using up most of the dressing and then even dragging a few tears of my bread through it as well.
