The Big Salad Restaurant Review

: The Big Salad focuses on healthy dining with a menu of namesake greens, sandwiches and wraps. Guests can choose to build their own salads (Baby, with four toppings, or Big with more) and get it tossed, chopped, wrapped or in a sandwich. Or you can select from a dozen options like the classic wedge (iceberg lettuce with blue cheese, red onion and crumbled bacon), Caesar, Asian, Greek, Cobb or California (spinach and romaine with red onions, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, garbanzo beans, tomatoes, carrots, dried cranberries and fat-free raspberry vinaigrette). Sandwich selections include caprese, cranberry turkey, chicken Caesar, roast beef and classic Italian. We also like the soups such as chicken and dumpling, broccoli and cheddar and chicken chili. Other locations. Order online if you’re in a hurry.
