It’s almost impossible not to think of Alfalfa when craving a salad these days. Classic options like the Italian and Greek-style salads are staples on the menu. For a flavorful salad, opt for the signature creation known as the Dear Darla, OR the now forever option of the Cobb, which was brought back to the menu for good as it was quite the fan favorite. If in the mood for something specific, building your own is always an option.

Pro-tip: all of the salads can be made into wraps upon request (sadly, not gluten-free — but the doughnuts are!).

Yes, Just Salad is a chain, but — we must shout out a few of its salads because we’d be remiss if we didn’t include them in a list of best salads in Hoboken. The Keto Salad (ignore the name, it’s actually legit) — extra crispy romaine and baby spinach, pickled onion, avocado, chopped almonds, roasted chicken, jammy egg, and sharp cheddar (with an option for vegan cheese) make up this delicious pick.
