Whether you choose to “chillax” inside or catch the salty breeze on the rooftop, 723 Whiskey Bravo has some really creative salad options. Take their Thai Shrimp Pasta Salad. They start with sweet Gulf shrimp marinated in a Thai-spiced soy sauce and cold Japanese soba noodles. The salad is then dressed with a Thai peanut sauce and sitting atop greens, shredded carrots, sprouts, and scallions. Lastly, it is garnished with herbs like fresh cilantro and basil and finished with nutty sesame seeds. This salad is filling and flavorful and will become a fast favorite. Seagrove
Everyone knows The Red Bar is THE place for a cold beer, a terrific cocktail, some killer live music, and a top-notch burger. But they also serve up a super tasty salad at lunchtime. The Smoked Tuna Salad is a fresh green salad is topped with perfect smoked tuna dip. It is a hearty serving and can easily be shared as a starter. Grayton Beach
On the “Misbehave” side of George’s menu is the Sesame Crab and Avocado Salad. I don’t know about you, but I think ordering a salad made with local greens, heart healthy avocados, and fresh crab sounds pretty much like behaving. This beauty is dressed with Asian vinaigrette and is as delicate and lovely as they come. Alys Beach
Summer Kitchen Squared
Welcome to Rosemary Beach! You can’t deny the wonderfully balanced fresh flavors of the Tropical Salad at Summer Kitchen Squared. Crisp, vibrant baby spinach and arugula are topped with tomatoes, cucumbers, berries, caramelized grilled pineapple, creamy goat cheese and tossed in their house made Strawberry Balsamic dressing. Want some protein? Add grilled chicken, a burger, shrimp, Gulf fresh fish, Ahi tuna or even lobster! Rosemary Beach
Once you try the Southern Summer Salad at Chanticleer Eatery you may become a lost cause. Let me clarify: I have never been able to cross their doorstep again without ordering it. Mixed greens are dotted with fresh, juicy fruit like mandarin orange slices, strawberries, blueberries, and apples. Next the savory components are added: red onions and gorgonzola cheese. And last but not least it is topped with crunchy candied pecans. This is like a healthy salad met a dessert and they fell in love. Grayton Beach
