While temperatures have cooled this week, the mercury is set to soar again before long. A scorching St. Louis evening is not the ideal time for a heavy, hot, stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal. You're more likely to go looking for a beautiful, light and fresh salad. And just because it's good for you doesn't mean it has to be boring.
Gut Check called around to some of our favorite spots and found ten salads we think are must-tries before the season is over.
Juniper (360 North Boyle Avenue; 314-329-7696) "Mr. Macgregor's Garden Salad" (pictured above) with pickled red beets, shaved radishes, Sun Gold tomatoes and cucumbers with honey vinaigrette.
Bocci Wine Bar (16 North Central Ave; 314-932-1040) Tabouli salad with whole wheat couscous, heirloom tomatoes, English cucumbers and parsley emulsion.
Dressel's (419 North Euclid Avenue; 314-361-1060) Heirloom tomato and grilled cantaloupe salad with cilantro-lime vinaigrette and saba.
