When it’s hot and humid in New Orleans, nothing satisfies like a cold, crisp salad with just the right amount of crab meat, shrimp, Creole tomatoes and other fresh ingredients mixed in. Here are some of our favorites from all over town. Enjoy
What do you get when you take calvados blanched pears, citrus infused mascarpone, candied walnuts and local honey vinaigrette? Perfection. And it's meets Ochsner's Eat Fit guidelines, too! Learn more.
Pear & Berry Salad
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
Life is more than a box of chocolates – it’s a Pear & Berry salad from Bubba Gump. They top fresh greens with your choice of charbroiled chicken or shrimp, strawberries, pears, glazed pecans, feta and raspberry vinaigrette. It’s a great way to cool off after a walking through the French Quarter. Learn more.
Landry’s Seafood House
If the view at Landry’s across from Jackson Square doesn’t blow you away Twisted Caesar salad with shaved Brussels sprouts, romaine, toasted hazelnuts and lemon-anchovy dressing will. You can have it topped with chicken, shrimp or salmon. Delicious! View menu.
Heirloom Tomato Salad
We love Apolline on Magazine Street. While it’s technically not an entrée salad, we can’t say enough about their Heirloom Tomato Salad with seasonal greens, feta, pistachios, aged balsamic vinaigrette and croutons. It’s absolutely perfect when paired with the Goat Cheese & Tomato Bisque. See full menu.
NOLA Beet & Pickled Onion Salad
They’re not just making music on Frenchmen Street – they’re making salads! This fun restaurant takes fresh-tossed mixed greens and tops them with house roasted beets, house pickled onions, almonds, goat cheese, and their own Balsamic vinaigrette. Yum! Visit their website.

Café BWe love this neighborhood restaurant on Metairie Road. Since it’s Creole tomato season, we couldn’t pass up this salad with jumbo lump crabmeat, truffle deviled egg, hearts of palm and arugula. See restaurant overview.
