With the Spring weather approaching, it’s time to ditch the warm comfort food and bring the cool, crisp salads back into our diets. There’s nothing like a nice salad on a warm city day- it’s a whole VIBE in our opinion- and Toronto is FULL of options. Whether you’re into the classic mixed greens, or a loaded taco salad- we’ve got you covered.
Here are the best salads in Toronto:
Made with organic lacinato kale and topped with their lemon vinaigrette, toasted pine nuts and parmigiano. Gusto 101 is a local Italian favourite and a Toronto salad staple! You can pair this bad boy with a delicious pizza or enjoy it on it’s own with a nice glass of red.
Globally Local is Toronto’s fave plant-based fast food hotspot and they have a killer taco salad. Topped with vegan cheese, vegan sour cream, green onions, tomatoes and a plant-based meat- this salad is a show stopper.
Now this is NOT your typical salad. Made with a serrano tahini dressing and loaded with veggies like avocado, baby kale and beets, this salad is perfect to share or hoard to yourself! Our favourite addition to this salad are the crispy shallots and fried chickpeas- brb drooling…
This will quickly become your go-to order at Fresh. With locations across the city, this salad is easily accessible, fully loaded and packed with nutrients. The marinated farro really brings this to the next level. You get to pick your own dressing and we recommend either the house or ranch dressing. Oh and did we mention-it’s fully vegan?
Ahi tuna & Salmon, House soy sauce, Cucumber, Edamame, Greens, Tobiko, Green onion, Sesame seeds, Nori, Red cabbage, Onion crisps…need we say more? Sure, poke isn’t the typical “salad” but we know you’re not typical either.
An abundance of flavour is an understatement! Topped with crispy wontons, edamame and shredded carrots, this sesame chicken salad is fresh, filling and delicious. Whether you’re taking a trip to the Eaton Centre (once it’s reopened of course) or ordering at home- you won’t be disappointed.
Time to get your veggie on! This salad is the perfect combination of crunchy and soft. A filling, unique option that will blow your plate away!
