Urban’s is famous for its game day treats like Short Rib Nachos and saucy Wings, but don’t overlook their awesome salads! The Southwest Blackened Chicken Salad is a crowd-pleaser, loaded with mixed greens, black bean salsa, cheddar jack cheese, avocado, and a zesty chipotle lime ranch dressing. 

Harvest Pizzeria’s Kale Caesar Salad  

Harvest Kale Caesar 

We get it, a kale salad might not sound super exciting, but trust us on this one. This salad from Harvest Pizzeria is a game-changer. The Kale Caesar is packed with Parmigiano Reggiano, toasted hazelnuts, and perfectly massaged kale dressed in a creamy Caesar dressing. Pair it as a side with a delicious pizza like the Monaco, which is loaded with spicy arrabbiata sauce, mozzarella & provolone blend, Salame Toscano, capicola, pepperoni, fennel sausage, bacon, artisan shredded cheese, and herbed chili oil. Or, make it a meal by adding blackened salmon or chicken! 

Dublin Village Tavern’s Strawberry Almond Salad

Strawberries scream summer, and Dublin Village Tavern knows how to make the most of them with their Strawberry Almond Salad. Imagine baby spinach piled high with fresh strawberries, creamy goat cheese, and toasted almonds, all drizzled with a tangy house-made lemon poppy seed vinaigrette. It’s the perfect way to savor the season.

Cafe Istanbul’s Shepherd Salad

You won't find any lettuce in this refreshing salad.
