After a day of feasting our eyes on the nature and a little hiking, we needed something to hold us over until dinner time. I googled in the car searching for a healthy place in downtown Portland and came up with this place. Four out of five of us were happy with our selection. That is not bad for a place that was picked at the last minute. Their salads were large enough that two people looking for a light meal could easily share. So, with the exception of my brother’s salad, Yucatan, the other two pictures are half portions.

Bliss Detox
Kale, Carrots, Raw Beets, Radish, Apple, Pickled Onion, Pepitas, Avocado, Chia Seeds, Cider and Pink Peppercorn Vinaigrette
My mom and dad’s choice and they really enjoyed the freshness of the salad. Actually I was going to get the same salad, but at the last minute changed my mind.

Yucatan
Roamine, Roasted Kitchen, Tarragon Corn, Avocado, Black Beans, Jicama, Radish, Tillamook Cheddar, Lime and Roasted Shallot Vinegar
My brother’s choice and the only one in the family that did not care for his food. He said the chicken was OK and the salad as whole was bland.

Autumn Harvest Salad
Spinach and Arugula with Roast Delicata Squash, Shaved Fennel, Pepitas, Crispy Bacon, Chevre, Mustard Greens with a Beet Cider & Sumac Vinaigrette
My husband and I were happy with our choice. It had saltiness from bacon, tanginess from goat cheese, a little heat from the mustard green and sweetness from squash. A well balance salad.
