    We eat waaaaaay too much food, in general, while at WDW. A good salad is such a relief.

    Which one and where?

    NOTE: Spinach salads are exempt from consideration

    Any resort with a create your own salad station is good. Pre-made salads at the resort don't appeal to me at all.

    So not entirely helpful because it comes with a huge meal, but I love the salad they serve at Ohana.

    The Chopped Salad at the Boathouse in Disney Springs is my absolute favorite. Make it a point to get it at least once every time I visit.

    lol I had the Harvest Salad at Chef Art Smiths Homecoming which was also great. I prefer the Chopped at the boathouse, but very close.[​IMG]

    There's an entree salad at Liberty Tree Tavern (Colony? Declaration? I forget which, but only one is entree). You can get it with or without chicken-either way I love it.

    The Shrimp Cobb Salad at Olivia's at Old Key West is great. The classic Cobb at Hollywood Brown Derby is awesome.

    The Cobb at the Brown Derby is fantastic! You can get it on the patio too.

    I love the Cobb there! SO GOOD! A few years ago they had a create your own, so fresh and sizable at Gasparillas, quick serve at Grand Floridian. Don’t know if they still have it, but would definitely walk over from Poly to GF for lunch. Thanks for reminding me!

    Most resorts have a make-your-own salad. I feel ya - even though I love stuffing myself beyond belief at Disney, there's days that I just need something fresh and not full of fat, sodium, or sugar.

    I like to do a CYO salad and ask for olive and vinegar to avoid the crap in regular dressing, but many spots just have the packets of dressing.

    Side note - Ale and Compass Market and the new spot in Dolphin are like an enhanced Starbucks. I got a cheese platter with dried fruit once, they have tons of salads, and even have this hardboiled egg and smoked salmon platter. It's a cool spot to get healthier options.

    Boma and Tusker House usually have several salads on the buffet.

    I totally feel the same way at WDW! I love the Chicken Caesar Salad at WPE at DS, might be my favorite salad anywhere, so fresh and good. Another vote for the salad at LTT, too, I just wish that one was a little bigger - though it did leave me room for dessert. I like the bowls at Satuli Canteen, you can get them with some sort of salad. The chicken was my favorite, with the sweet potato hash.
