Best Local Salad

Idaho Pizza Company

Salad has always been pizza's guilt-ridden sidekick: that menu item you append to your order to make it look like you're eating more healthy than you really are. Not so at Idaho Pizza Company, where the salad bar game can best be described as "fierce" and the delivery salad big enough to feed 10 people. idahopizzacompany.com

2nd Place: Wildroot Cafe and Market—This newcomer to downtown is off to a strong start, with inspired menu items across the board. Of special note are its salads. "Green" is a heaping bowl of squash, shallots, lentils, greens, egg and more, topped with a sherry mustard vinaigrette. If that doesn't sound rock and roll enough for you, brace yourself for the Power Bowl, packed with roasted beets, brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, quinoa and more, drizzled in almond cider vinaigrette. At Wild Root, the menu speaks for itself. wildrootcafe.com

3rd Place: Fork—Too often, salads are mistaken for side dishes. Nothing could be further from the truth at Fork, which has seven heaping piles of greens to choose from. Packed with potent flavors like gorgonzola cheese, sunflower seeds and buttermilk basil-pesto dressing, cheese, bell peppers and fish—these babies don't mess around. forkboise.com
