Nice salads are a bit like buses, aren’t they? You wait an age for one to come along, and then five appear at once! The grim days of generic leaves and soggy bit of cucumber are well and truly over – just check these out for proof!
Greens by name; greens by nature. Of course, that hardly does justice to the “Hola Mexico” salad you can get here, as it’s one of the most colourful dishes we’ve ever seen. It features roast chicken, corn, avocado, capsicum, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, mesclun leaves, black beans, tortilla chips, cheese, and a sumptuous lime, honey and jalapeño dressing. Phew! We need a siesta after all that deliciousness…
“I absolutely love this place. Such a great idea to have fresh salads made for you, from their menu or to your liking with their ingredients fresh at hand. Keep up the excellent work Jack Greens and Team!” – xbabydollx
With its bricky walls, timbery beams and rustic décor, Peel Street is kind of like a big, cosy farmhouse. The cuisine is anything but old-fashioned, however, encompassing a wide range of modern Australian goodness. The salad with crispy snapper wings, chilli lime sambal, pineapple, betel leaves and yam beans is a veritable work of salad-y art.

Let’s be honest; you’d expect anywhere called “Bliss Organic Cafe” to serve up one heck of a good salad. And you’d be right! The “Raw Power Salad” is one of their tastiest options, with green veg, seasonal fruit, nuts, seeds, buckwheat, savoury nut cream, coconut oil, alfalfa sprouts, raw crackers, and your choice of grated carrot or beetroot. If this place isn’t already a favourite, it soon will be.
“Great food, warm caring staff and a whole range of vegan products including shoes, clothes and food. scrambled tofu for breakky is lovely, I frequently order it. as a recently converted vegan i love this place for the kind and welcoming staff and amazing food. I often buy tea, organic jam and vegan chocolate and other food and non-food products from here.” – britabroad
Let’s be honest again; you probably wouldn’t expect anywhere called “Paddy’s Lantern” to serve up one heck of a good salad. But you’d be wrong! The Potato & Smoked Trout Salad they do here is utterly wonderful, and comes with fennel, watercress, dill, and a fiery horseradish dressing. Paddy’s itself is an attractive, contemporary venue, and the service is famously excellent, so there’s really no excuse not to give it a visit.
“What a beautiful little cafe, set right in the city, but a fairly quiet street compared to the rest of the hustle and bustle of little old Adelaide. The service alone was worth 10/10 Despite being greeted and served by someone else, the owner made himself known and asked how my day was. Which was just lovely. It seriously counts for brownie points when your after top quality service.” – TheMiddleIngredient
A spacious layout, stark white walls and striking black ceiling combine to make Pickle in the Middle a super setting for a sumptuous salad (how’s that for alliteration?). The tasty menu, great coffee and selection of local beers and wines certainly help as well (as do the brunchtime cocktails). As for the aforementioned salad? Give the Satay Bowl a go. It’s packed with grilled pineapple, cucumber, marinated tofu, nut sambal, lotus root chips, rice and satay sauce. Absolutely scrumptious.
