It’s no secret I love Kale Me Crazy. Their food items, smoothies, juices and shots are all tasty, but if you walked into one of their shops wanting just a vegan salad, what would I recommend?
Here are my choices from good to best:
4. Greek Salad – Think of your typical Greek salad, add chickpeas, and that’s what you’ve got. It’s definitely worth trying, but they’ve got even better more unique options.
3. Pear Apple Salad – I love fruity salads, and this one with pears, apples and crasins with orange vinaigrette does the trick. To take it up a notch, ask to sub kale or spinach for the standard lettuce.
2. Beet Salad – This one comes on spinach and arugula, aka my favorite salad greens. It has spiralized beets and a really delicious dressing, too. It’s definitely a very close second place for me thanks to the heartiness and diversity in this salad.
1. Kale salad – You can order this one straight off the menu without omitting any of the ingredients, because it contains no animal products – plus 1 point for that – and it’s got the perfect combination of light and hearty. I love the addition of the quinoa to this one for a little protein boost, and the shaved carrots work perfectly with the peanut dressing to bring out the best flavor profile.
