For those big meat eaters, ordering a salad in a coffee shop or restaurant seems like it won’t fill you up for the rest of the day, or it just seems like a waste of money- or both. Why go out and pay for for a bunch of leaves sprinkled with seeds? But no one ever said salads have to be boring and unappetizing. Nowadays, people are more welcome to vegetarian and vegan diets, thus making coffee shops compete with one another, trying to attract as many customers with their absolutely fantastic lunch in Dublin ideas. That also includes salads. And it’s incredible to believe the boundaries that some chefs have crossed to create fab looking salads with ingredients you wouldn’t even think of combining. Here is Hungry in Dublin’s top 6 places to get an awesome tasting salad.
