We’re pretty health conscious here on Long Island. Well, at least we try to be. Salads come in many sizes and forms, but they all have to be delicious. So whether you like steak or chicken on your salad, beans or carrots, we bring you this year’s winners for Best Salad on Long Island.
Long Islanders Voted Joe’s Meat & Gourmet Deli Best Salad on Long Island!
1. Joe’s Meat & Gourmet Deli
783 Hillside Ave., New Hyde Park. 516-326-7616. www.joesgourmetdeli.com
Salad tends to be a side item for some people, even an afterthought. But when you go to Joe’s, you don’t ask for a panini with a side of salad, you ask for a salad with a side of panini. The New Hyde Park deli is a staple for locals looking for a great gourmet salad. Fresh baby Romaine, croutons, Parmesan, tomatoes, grilled chicken, a dash of salt and pepper tossed together and drizzled with Caesar dressing—now that’s amore! Joe’s also serves up a long list of delicious soups and a 39-sandwich panini menu, you know, for your side item.
