The Best Salad in Toronto

The best salad in Toronto is so much more than rabbit food. Society has pinned down healthy food as joyless eating, but these restaurants are proving the opposite with medleys of delicious plant-based and meaty ingredients that you can't wait to scarf down.

Here are the restaurants for the best salad in Toronto.
