Super Salad Bar

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I LOVE big-ass salad bars! They never cease to entertain me! :mrgreen:

During the summer, the Dudley Café in Harvard Yard offers an Extreme Salad Bar, featuring 50+ salad items, as well as rolls, chips, fruit, and drinks. The Salad Bar is located inside, but you can easily take your meal outside to enjoy on the patio in the sunshine. Unfortunately, it’s raining again in Cambridge today! 😡

Check out this impressive salad bar! It had everything!!!





The salad bar had so many fun toppings! Some things I had never even seen on a salad bar! I pretty much added one of everything to my plate.



I ate lunch with the Director of Crimson Catering and the Food Literacy Project Coordinator to brainstorm a “healthy living” event for my office. After only a few minutes of discussion, we came up with a great idea! Our plan is to offer a tour the Farmer’s Market at Harvard, followed by lunch featuring local ingredients for the members of my office to enjoy. During lunch, the Food Literacy Coordinator will talk about sustainable agriculture and eating local, and we’ll provide people with recipe cards from the featured lunch. I’m really looking forward to the event! 😀

My “extreme” salad was delicious, interesting, and satisfying– just the way a salad should be! Check out my tips and tricks for Raising the Salad Bar.


In honor of Cookie Friday, I indulged in an oatmeal raisin coconut cookie. So good! :mrgreen:



I’m heading to my hometown tonight, so I’m not sure if I will be blogging or not. If not, I’ll be back with my Mexican-themed bridal shower recap!

Happy weekend!!! 😎



  1. I don’t understand what your job is. Can you explain it/how you got it or link me to where you discuss it?

  2. That is an amazing salad bar! Your event sounds fun too! I will have to find a cookie later to celebrate your cookie Friday:) Have fun at the shower, I am sure it will be fabulous!

  3. I LOVE artichoke hearts… I see them so rarely on food blogs but I think they kick ass taste-wise over kale or some other stuff.

  4. That’s funny, I’m going to Boston this weekend and you’re leaving for the weekend! I LOVE Salad Bars!! The theme of the Bridal Shower is great!! Hope it’s fun! Have a great weekend!!

  5. O MYYYYY Goooddneess; that is the most amazing salad bar…I wish we had that for lunch….your salad looks soo yummy…
    Congrats on the Farmer’s Market event idea…I think that sounds wonderful.
    Have a great weekend at your sister’s Mexican shower!!! I can’t wait to see the pictures.


  6. YAYYYY for big salads! I’m surprised I haven’t seen more Sebastian’s trips on this blog! Are there not any around you? I visited the one in Devonshire Place pretty much every day when I worked on Arch Street 🙂

  7. I love huge salad bars… my favorite place to go is Sweet Tomato or Soup Plantation. You can never go wrong with a huge salad full of veggies

  8. wow! salad bar heaven right there….i’ve been looking for a good salad bar around boston so thanks for sharing this! i’m excited to check it out myself!

  9. I am total salad bar nut too! I don’t discriminate either–although WF is the best, Jason’s Deli and even Ruby Tuesday have decent offerings. I love seeing how many different colors I can fit onto one plate:)

  10. Oh man! I would have a parrrtay at that salad bar! I love how your plate is just a blank canvas and you get to “paint” it with all the fun toppings!! 🙂 Might have to hit it up next time I’m in town!

  11. That salad bar looks awesome! Now that I will be living in Beantown I will be there with bells on… its a vegetarian fiesta!!!
