People whose favorite food is salad are far and few between, but if you are turning over a new leaf, or just looking for an alternative from the everyday pizza and burrito, then this healthy option is a great choice for you. This month, MavLife staffers conducted a blind taste to determine which of three local eateries makes the best Caesar salad.

A- Panera – Nestled in the The Forum shopping center this restaurant offers sandwiches and bagels, steaming coffee and tea, and of course breads and desserts. But hidden within these not so healthy options is MavLife’s favorite place to get a Caesar salad. The salad appeared “crisp and delicious” with a “thick and creamy” dressing, according to freshman Reilly Tiglio. The taste was “full of flavor and surprising taste” according to junior Meghan Lumsden.

B- Flippin’ Pizza – A pizzeria know for thin crust and great flavor, Flippin’ Pizza has been holding out on customers who only know them for their pizza. Coming in second in our blind taste test, the Flippin’ salad “had a perfect little dash of dressing and croutons” according to freshman Cooper Gee. The salad also had “a nice mixture of tangy cheese [as well as a] nice crunch to the lettuce and flavorful croutons,” Gee said.

C- Souplantation – Souplantation is famous for its salad bar, which greets customers at the door, making it impossible to avoid getting at least an eyeful of the leafy greens. Which is why it came as a surprise that Souplantation came in last in our blind taste test. “It’s light and fresh,” junior Devon Whitlam said. “[It] was really good until hair was found.” Unsurprisingly, after MavLife staffers found several pieces of hair in the Souplantation salad, they rather lost their appetites.
