By Martha Gill, Content Manager

1. Continental Westhampton: The Ivy League

The Ivy League is a high-achieving salad with dried cranberries, toasted pecans, crisp apples, and gorgonzola sprinkled over baby spinach and topped with a warm bacon vinaigrette. From chicken or shrimp to beef brisket and lamb, protein can be added to salads for a nominal fee.

2. Joe’s Inn: Country Greek Salad

Having to choose between vacationing on the gorgeous Mediterranean or on a farm in Old Virginia would be truly impossible. Thankfully, Joe’s lets you have it all with fresh kalamata olives, crumbled feta, pepperoncini, and juicy Hanover tomatoes.

3. Lunch and Supper: Special of The Day

Truth be told, all of Lunch and Supper’s staple salads are fantastic, but their specials tend to really mix things up, just like a well-tossed salad. Check out Edward’s Ham & Goat Cheese Salad featured above. We’re not sure who Edward is, but he seems like one awesome guy.

4. Impanema Cafe: Vegan Caesar

It should not be surprising that one of the friendliest vegetarian joints in RVA should be chopping up delicious salads. We recommend getting the small-sized Vegan Caesar and leaving room for whatever WPA goodie Impanema is offering for dessert!

5. Union Market: Caesar

Ordering this baby will have you feeling far from stabbed in the back. With red onion, spicy croutons, parmesan, and house-made dressing, your tummy will be thanking you!

6. Can Can Brasserie: Salad of Beets

For many, beets are a root a sidestep outside of their comfort zone. Accompanied with goat cheese, toasted hazelnuts, and a vinagrette atop mâche – French greens – this salad is worth venturing out.

7. Toast: Thai Salad

Edamame, shredded carrots, crispy wontons, cabbage, peanuts, thai chili and wasabi ginger vinaigrette? Shut the front door, that sounds delicious.

8. Strawberry Street Cafe

It wouldn’t have been right to not include the holy Mecca of salad creations on this list. That’s right, the beloved bathtub of Strawberry St Cafe. We have yet to understand the fine science behind it, but our data proves that salad DOES taste significantly better when eaten out of a tub (do not try at home).
