Salads make healthy, flavorful meals, unlike frozen-water popsicles and five-course French dinners consumed through the art of mime. Enjoy freedom from flavorless fare with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of chopped salads, soups, and wraps at Chop Stop in Burbank.
Chop Stop offers health-conscious hunger-havers the option of customizing low-carb, vegetarian, or hearty, chopped salads, soups, and wraps using more than 40 ingredients. Each ingredient is pre-chopped to speed up assembly and service, and the finished salads are mixed so finely they can be eaten with a spoon, a spork, or the eye of a sewing needle. Typically weighing about a pound, specialty chops include the wasabi veggie chop, a mix of avocado, edamame, tomato, cucumber, beet, almonds, and wasabi dressing ($8.49), and the chop-zilla, a meaty mound of double-grilled chicken, salami, ham, garbanzo beans, tomato, tortilla strips, and ranch dressing so packed with protein that it can defeat Mothra with one mighty muscle flex ($10.74). Homemade soups, such as chicken noodle ($8.49) and turkey minestrone ($7.74) make warm, hearty meals that won't deafen sharp-eared librarians with a salads' cacophonous crunching.
Chop Stop provides customers with the option of custom-tailoring their salads, soups, and wraps, as well. After picking a base of leafy greens, such as iceberg, romaine, or spinach, diet-conscious diners can add six toppings to the chopping block, including fresh fruits and vegetables, barbecue chicken, tuna, bacon, beans, cheeses, seeds, nuts, and more. Finally, festoon the massive mixture with one of 14 dressings, lubricating the vitamin-rich vittles to velvety perfection. Any chopped salad can be nestled within a healthy tortilla wrap for portable lunching, and Chop's staff will add six of its ingredients to a base of chicken or vegetable stock to make a one-of-a-kind soup to slurp.

- The ingredients are endless and there's something for everyone! Your salads can also be made into a whole wheat tortilla wrap which is amazing! Everything is fresh and made when you order it. – Yusra F., Yelp, 12/18/10
