Eating things in bowls has been trending hard the past couple of years (here’s proof). With all the hubbub over grain bowls, acai bowls and the like, let us not forget the O.G. of bowl foods: the green salad.
We’ve scoured menus across L.A. to find salads that could inspire the most greens-averse to grab a fork. Our well-researched shortlist highlights big flavor, spring and summer ingredients, and artful plating. Crafted in the kitchens of lunch and dinner spots we already adore, these three bowls are worth braving the 405 for.
Check out three of our favorite L.A. eateries and the salads luring us through their doors. For more salad-inspo, explore our ten favorite recipes for green bowls that won’t bore your tastebuds.
