I'm normally a lurker, but I'm coming out of hiding for some Chowhound advice. For health reasons I've recently been on a limited, bland & no uncooked vegetable diet (ick). I'm at the point that I've been dreaming about salads filled with veggies, fruits, nuts etc.
So the big day is approaching & I'm about to switch back to a normal diet (yay!). I want to celebrate with the best, freshest salad Boston in January allows. Any recommendations for me?
I'm looking for something flavorful, crunchy & fresh. Meat/fish is optional. I want something where the focus is on the vegetables & where the flavor is coming mainly from the contents of the salad rather than the dressing if that makes sense.
I'm just west of the city & can drive or take the T - anywhere in the area is good.
Thanks for any advice you can give me!
