Salads are generally among the healthiest items on restaurants’ menu since these are made of fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs as well as spices. Of course, the salt and fat content should also be considered since these will contribute to the salads’ total calorie content. The type of dressing will also affect the total number of calories, thus, a vinaigrette dressing will be healthier than a Thousand Island dressing.

Nick Kenner and Rob Crespi founded Just Salad in 2006 in New York City. The childhood friends noticed that Manhattan had a shortage of healthy yet budget-friendly food options, thus, their decision to open a salad-based restaurant in the Big Apple.
Today, there are more than 25 restaurants in New York City and Chicago as well as in Hong Kong and Dubai. The chain has remained dedicated to the core principles of the founders – to offer diners a wide range of healthy food options at affordable prices, as well as deliver fast service in a welcoming environment.
What They’re Famous For
Just Salad restaurants caters to the needs and wants for salads, wraps and soups of meat lovers and vegans. In case of the latter, the toppings and dressings can be customized to fit the vegan needs of diners, while the diners can also request that the kitchen staff use a separate chopping board.
There are more than 70 toppings and 28 dressings available in the restaurants, thus, ensuring that every need and want can be satisfied. These also include sugar-free options for people who are watching their sugar intake, such as diabetics and weight loss watchers.
Why Eat Here
The budget-friendly Just Salad prices are among the reasons for coming to the restaurants. Many diners even say that they can feed an entire group of friends or their entire family without burning a hole in their pockets. Many of the diners are even college students who want to save on the costs of their meals without denying themselves delicious, nutritious and filling meals – or worse, choosing unhealthy fast-food meals.

The company also assures its diners that the food ingredients are as organic as possible since healthy, flavorful and nutritious eating demands it.

The meat also has these desirable qualities so meat lovers will always have something to look forward to at Just Salad restaurants.
There are also seasonal salads, such as the Fall Superfood, Tandoori Fire, and Autumn Chicken Caesar Salads, among others. Diners can choose these salads since these are delicious on their own but the restaurants also offer make-your-own-salad options. The ingredients include wheat berries, Turkish fig, feta, broccoli, butternut squash, cranberries, pears, multigrain croutons, grilled shrimp and salmon, to name a few.
The salad wraps are to die for, so to speak. These include the protein wrap with kale and red cabbage, organic quinoa, chickpeas, feta, egg whites, and edamame; buffalo chicken wrap with romaine, buffalo chicken, celery, pepper jack cheese, and tortilla strips; and spicy chicken wrap with romaine, grilled chicken, croutons, and shaved parmesan cheese.
