Salads have long been synonymous with boring diet food, but Verde makes healthy eating fun, fast, and, most importantly, tasty. The locally owned King Street spot exudes freshness with a bright green interior offset by colorful stripes. Customers can choose salads or wraps from the menu or build their own salad from an endless array of veggies, proteins, and dressings, from beets to goat cheese to nuts. The employees will help you customize your salad, but so far we’ve been happy with the specialty salads, like the Southern Harvest (mesclun, roasted chicken, apples, pecans, and cornbread croutons with sweet tea vinaigrette) and the Soba Salad. Be sure to check out the employee’s creations as well — a recent offering had strawberries, cranberries, goat cheese, granola, spinach, and a raspberry vinegrette. With so many choices, Verde makes us want to eat salad every day. —Erica Jackson Curran Dish (Summer 2013)
