I love a good salad. It’s a no-brainer lunch option that (if done right) ticks all the boxes: greens & veggies + good quality protein + complex carbs + healthy fats – all at a decent calorie count and an above-average level of convenience.

This summer has been incredibly hectic. Although I really enjoy cooking, in the past few months I simply haven’t had the time to whip up hearty home-cooked meals. These salads have been keeping me going while saving the precious time I needed to devote to work and loved ones.

This is my go-to curated list of takeout salads. There’s one for every day of the week. Each is perfect in its own special way. Some options are vegan, some are paleo, some are low-carb… Pick out the one that excites you or try all on rotation. Happy ordering!

Superfood Salad from Ultra Brasserie

The ingredients:
Organic quinoa, lentils, kale chips, tomato, broccoli, nuts, blueberry with pomegranate dressing.

Why I love it:
A scrumptious vegan option that keeps me fueled all afternoon. As the name suggests, this salad is powered by nutritional superheroes (oh hello, kale!) for added fiber and antioxidant boost.

The details:
AED 60. Ultra Brasserie, Marina Plaza/Emaar Square Downtown, Dubai

Spring Chicken Salad from Friend’s Avenue Cafe

The ingredients:
Poached chicken breast, celery, broccoli, radicchio with dukkah dressing.

Why I love it:
This is a high protein, low carb option that is an upgrade on your “usual” waistline friendly PT–approved cliche chicken & broccoli number. Skip the dressing if you want a paleo-friendly salad and request olive oil + lemon instead.

The details:
AED 30. Friend’s Avenue Cafe, Fortune Executive Tower, Cluster T, JLT, Dubai

Organic Quinoa Salad with Roasted Veggies from Bystro

The ingredients:
Organic tricolor quinoa, roasted veggies, lentils with roast red pepper dressing. Optional: add chicken for an extra protein boost.

Why I love it:
The combo of nutty quinoa, soft oven-roasted veggies, and a tangy dressing is just divine. This is a great option when you don’t feel like “rabbit food” and are in the mood for something light yet comforting. This salad is vegan unless you opt for a shredded chicken breast as an add-on. Try both options to see what you prefer.

The details:
AED 49 (sans chicken). Bystro, Sheikh Zayed Road, Al-Manara, Dubai

Portobello Mushroom Salad from S’wich

The ingredients:
Assemble your own!:) I love the rocca plate with portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, avocado and pine nuts powered by the zesty chili dressing.

Why I love it:
I’m loyal to S’wich because of their fresh ingredients, easy online system, and speedy delivery. The portobello mushroom is a vegetarian protein option that keeps you satisfied without being too heavy. And what’s not to love about a 20 minute delivery turnaround time to JLT?

The details:
AED 35. S’wich, Marina View Towers A, Shop 9, Dubai Marina
Delivers to Dubai Marina, Media City, Knowledge Village, JLT, Emirates Hills, Meadows, Lakes, The Greens, TECOM
800 SWICH (79424)

Pumpkin Salad from Circle Cafe

The ingredients:
Mixed lettuce, roasted pumpkin, sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, cherry tomatoes,
pine nuts with pesto dressing.

Why I love it:
Well, I love pumpkin. And goat cheese. And sundried tomatoes. When you put those on a bed of crisp lettuce it becomes my idea of lunch perfection. Pass on the pesto dressing if you’re watching your fat intake – the cheese and sundried tomatoes already add enough flavor to this salad.

The details: 
AED 46. Circle Cafe, Dubai

South Western Salad from Salad Jar

The ingredients:
Black bean, white bean, corn, cucumber, tomato, avocado with cilantro & olive oil dressing.

Why I love it:
Despite being under 400 calories, this salad keeps you surprisingly full for hours! It’s got beans for protein and fiber, cucumber for a satisfying crunch, avocado for healthy fats and a spicy cilantro dressing to bind all the flavors together into healthy Mexican-inspired awesomeness. Also, I just love eating out of the jar! It’s so much more fun.

Immunity Bowl Salad from Just Salad

The ingredients:
Romaine lettuce, grilled salmon, pumpkin, dried cranberries, wheat berries, cucumber with lemon olive oil dressing.

Why I love it:
I’ve already declared my love for pumpkin. Well, I’m also a big fan of salmon. It’s full of healthy fats that make your skin glow and hair shine. And who doesn’t want that?! I also love how easy it is to customize your salad – for a gluten-free version just remove the wheat berries and add some nuts for an extra crunch. Yum!

The details: 
AED 49. Just Salad, Indigo Tower, Cluster D, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Dubai
Delivers to Media City, JLT, Emirates Hills, Meadows, Lakes, The Greens
