Looking for an alternative to the dollar menu and/or your sad desk lunch? Look no further to the ever-healthful offerings of Salad Express. They’ve got the holy trifecta of lunch offerings: piping hot soups, decadent wraps, and a build-your-own-salad bar.In this modern era we’re stuck in, lunch ain’t easy. Do we stick to the sad bologna and cheese combo we packed for today? Or reduce ourselves to the drive-thru line? Or drop $30 on a decadent meal that takes us an hour and a half, then only to strike us as a lethargy-inducing gut bomb? Right when we’re about to skip our midday meal all-together, Salad Express swooped in with the perfect trifecta of lunch offerings: piping hot, freshly made soups, flavorful (but also healthy) wraps, and a build your own salad bar. This place is like an oasis of vegetables and happiness in a swamp of greasy burgers and brown-bagged disasters.
As the name would imply, the real draw of Salad Express is the aforementioned glorious salad bar. Say au revoir to the sloppily compiled leafy concoctions of all of those other places – here you can thoughtfully peruse and select your ingredients. Just choose your greens, your six toppings (which vary from beets to pepperoncini peppers to bleu cheese crumbles and back) and your dressing. Voila! For those sick of making choices, Salad Express has a wealth of tricks up their sleeve for you. By “tricks” we mean famous salads with pre-determined fixings. We’re huge fans of the Asian Sesame Salad they whip up, which combines crisp romaine with mandarin oranges, sliced almonds, noodles, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots and oriental dressing. If you’re looking to get your daily allotment of veggies another way, wraps like the Veggie Wrap, Buffalo Chicken Caesar, and Bankok Shrimp are all equally grand. Heck, after grazing their menu once the dollar menu will be a quickly fading memory.
