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.

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.
