For those near Uptown, stop by Lucia’s To-Go any day of the week for a salad with fresh locally sourced ingredients. The menu even lets you throw some protein on your greens with chicken or bacon. Lettuce not your thing? Try the tuna salad with capers and sun-dried tomatoes.
With ten different locations throughout the metro area, D’Amico & Sons is the perfect place to stop wherever you find yourself out and about. Most of their carryout options are gluten-free, including an Italian-style chopped salad with red wine vinaigrette. And you simply can’t go wrong with the chicken and dried cherries pasta salad, one of the restaurant’s on-the-go menu staples. Bring the latter to any summer barbecue get-together and you’ll be a crowd favorite.
If find yourself near downtown, check out one of Eat Street’s international markets. Grab a banh mi sandwich with either pork, chicken, duck, beef, or tofu at Jasmine Deli or opt for one of their equally delicious rice noodle salads.
