Where to grab a salad in San Diego that doesn't suck

If you know me, I don't want anything that's not a greasy cheeseburger or fiery hot wings but lately that hasn't been the case for me. After visiting the doctor back in November, I was told I need to make some lifestyle changes if I want to be medication free and live a long healthy life. With the doctor telling me that my blood levels and blood pressure was high, I immediately decided to eat a little better, which means adding healthier options to my food options. There are plenty of ways to eat better and live a healthier lifestyle, so I'm not saying eating salads will do the trick but my thought process was, If I can add good nutrients to a meal, meaning fruits, nuts, greens, fats and protein, I'll be steps towards a healthier lifestyle, which brings me to this list of spots I enjoy having a salad from in San Diego.

Please Note: All locations offer a variety of protein options with these listed salads.

Bay Hill Tavern | Bay Park

What to try: Beets by Bay

Bay Hill Tavern is a newer restaurant that opened up in Bay Park. They're offering a wide range of food, including pizza, burgers, wings, draft beer, cocktails, and of course, salads. They have an array of salads but my favorite on the menu is Beets by Bay. I'm a huge fan of beets, so any salad with beets in it will be good to me. This salad has Arugula, red & yellow beets, quinoa & farro mix, goat cheese, dried cranberries, toasted almonds with balsamic vinaigrette on the side. I typically like my salad dressing on the side in case I don't want any dressing on the salad.
