A DIY version of my favorite takeout salad

Chris and I are on our way home. It’s late. We’ve had a couple of glasses of wine and now we’re hungry, but too tired to cook. I refuse to get a frozen pizza from the corner store.

..and Action

“Where should we get takeout from?”

“Want to just pick something up from the Grove? I could really go for a Berkeley Bowl salad….”

This scenario plays out at least once a week. Partially because we live near The Grove on Fillmore and mostly because I’m obsessed with The Grove’s Berkeley Bowl Salad. It’s so fresh and healthy that you don’t feel gross eating it before bed, but tasty enough you don’t notice there’s no cheese or meat on it (although you could easily add grilled chicken for extra protein).

I was ordering it so often that it became easier for me to figure out to make the salad at home. Luckily, the recipe is super duper easy. Take a look below to see how to create this simply delicious meal yourself!

    Chalets? You mean you chop up houses and put them in salad dressings???

    Oh. Shallots. Got it.

    What are “alpha alpha sprouts”? Do they sell those at Whole Foods or not even? So cutting edge!

    Or did you mean alfalfa sprouts?

    Ok, I get it. I think. I think I can tackle this recipe now. Thanks so much for all your hard work! xoxo
