Salabration: A Week Of Salads - Tender Greens

Something new, a week of posting nothing but salads here at A Radiused Corner. I'm calling it a Sala-bration!

This is an honest to goodness seven day jubilee of eating quantity amounts of healthy fruits and vegetables. All right some may be generously topped with protein and even with a few guilty croutons... But definitely no Potato or Mac Salads playing up boundary extremities of the definition, no sir. Chicken, Tuna and Egg varieties will also remain sandwiched between slices of bread (where they belong). And I don't even need to mention the Taco Salad do I?

The commemorative inaugural goes to Tender Greens. They're located at the South East end of the Liberty Station complex.

This day on the aluminum tray with radiused corners that I find very attracted to, we have hot from the grill some quick seared sashimi grade Albacore Tuna laying seductively next to my choice of Caesar Salad like Cleopatra with herb brushed sultry eyeliner ($10.50).

Also had this day their Rustic Lemon Thyme Chicken Soup ($4), scratch made and very good.

Each salad tossed to order and their sandwiches aren't premade either. The place is popular and during lunch hour the rush seems to only get exacerbated with the High Tech High kids. But if you do see a line spilling a little out the door don't get too discouraged since it tends to move along at a steady pace. Yes you may find cheaper lunches, but I've personally never been disappointed with the freshness and flavors of meals here and find the occasional visit a nice treat.
