Los Angeles Salads Worth Seeking

Lettuce Farmers Market

The Garden of...Lettuces are available at market-driven restaurants like Rustic Canyon and Sirena.

Salad doesn’t need to be boring. L.A. has access to fantastic produce and global influences that help to keep meals interesting. Plenty of restaurants know that. I typically prefer salads with a jolt of acidity and something crunchy. Bitter greens can also be a nice touch. Too much dressing is a downer, especially when they drown beautiful market lettuces. Limp, soggy lettuce is basically a slap in the farmer’s face. Find some of my favorite Los Angeles salads, evergreen and seasonal creations that I don’t limit to iceberg, romaine or little gem lettuces. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

I devoted a separate guide to Caesar salad, a 100-year-old Tijuana creation, since I order that beloved salad so often.
