Without salads, vinegar and oil would gather dust in Lazy Susans and all dinner parties would instead commence with lengthy table readings of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Celebrate meal-saving greens with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of salads, wraps, and paninis at Salad Creations in Clifton Park.
Salad Creations proffers a healthy alternative to fast food with its verdant variety of fresh fare. Dig into the spicy veggie salad, a mélange of cilantro, black beans, cucumbers, and lime juice ($6.99 for a full classic salad), or prop open jaws or heavy doors with the wedge wrap, which houses lettuce, bacon bits, candied pecans, and blue cheese ($5.99 for a classic wrap). The ginger-glazed salmon salad topped with salmon, edamame, cilantro, and wonton strips ($8.99 for a full premium salad) reminds diners of scuba diving with their mouths open, and the portable chicken italiano panini arrives tooth-side packed with grilled chicken, mozzarella cheese, and basil-pesto mayonnaise ($6.99). The refreshing eatery also provides the option to create your own mouthwatering masterpiece ($7.49) with nearly 50 topping options⎯including gulf shrimp, chickpeas, goat cheese, and hard-boiled egg⎯that can be showered with 1 of more than 20 dressings, such as blueberry pomegranate or gorgonzola vinaigrette.
