According to most restaurant critics, the perfect salad is served on a plate that rests on a table with legs. Try some authentic toss n' chop the way it was meant to be served with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of chocked-full salads, sandwiches, soups, and drinks from Tossed in Franklin.
Taking the concept of the salad to its apex, Tossed offers more than a dozen piled creations composed of anything you can slice or dice, including the kitchen salad with porcelain sinklets. Bury yourself in a Greek salad with grape tomatoes, feta, and kalamata olives ($8) or dive into the spicy sea of a cayenne-shrimp salad with avocado, roasted onions, and black-bean corn salsa ($11). Wrap your salad for on-the-go chomps with a pesto chicken crêpe with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, field greens, and lemon basil vinaigrette ($7.95) or pour that salad into the blender for a soup of the day, such as chicken tortilla or Red Rock seafood bisque ($2.95 for a small, $3.95 for a large).
Things that seem impossible on an empty stomach, such as skydiving straight into space, convincing your boss to trade spouses, and turning a recurring dream into reality by going back to high school and passing that chemistry exam pantsless, slide into the realm of the certain once you've conquered the mountaintop of a Tossed salad.
Though some complain about prices, most are impressed by the variety of selection at Tossed. Franklin's Fun Times Guide expresses mixed sentiments but applauds the Tossed concept. Six Yelpers do the same, giving the fledgling green gurus 3.5 stars.
- Overall, I love love love the concept! This is the kind of place I could see myself going to on a regular basis. I guess I'm looking for more of a quick & easy make your own salad kind of place. – Lynnette, Fun Times Guide
- It can get a bit pricey, sure, but the salads are also HUGE and the right ingredients will fill you up for hours. – Kate O., Yelp
