Another health craze has hit Dubai, which hasn’t spared anyone – not even food bloggers! Trying to eat healthy (which also includes the sad reality of skipping dessert) meant crossing Just Salad off the wishlist.
Sadly their blender wasn’t working when I visited, although their selection of teas made up for that – loved the Honest tea range: Honest green lemon as well as the half tea half lemonade combo. They also have Alo ® Drink (aloe vera), Vita Coco, vitamin water and much more.
Started off with a buffalo chicken wrap which may taste a bit bland in the beginning but as soon as the buttermilk ranch kicks in, it pulls the entire sandwich together!
A great combination of chickpeas, crumbled feta, lentils and pita chips with an olive oil balsamic vinegar dressing in the Mediterranean mix (veggie special).
Another great salad is the chipotle cowboy, a chunky salad where the grilled chicken, sharp cheddar and creamy avocado shine through; dressed in a chipotle vinaigrette.
Just salad also has a range of soups and a make your own salad option, if you opt for the reusable bowl you get to add 2 essentials to the salad of your choice.
The Boxpark branch we visited is small but had outdoor seating which was great for this cooler weather! Their other branches are in JLT and Business bay – for when the inevitable sweltering heat comes around!
