I recently travelled to Peru with some friends and stayed a few days in Lima. The first thing we ate was obviously Ceviche, one of my favorite foods. But eating ceviche everyday wasn’t the plan, we wanted to try fun things while in Lima. So my friend (who lives in Peru) recommended we try Design Your Salad.
Located in Miraflores, Design Your Salad is the perfect place for lunch. As the name states, you can make your own salad. When ordering you have a huge variety of ingredients to pick from for your salad, and also some yummy juices.
For your salad, first you pick your base, then your protein, your cheese, your toppings, and your dressing. The service is pretty fast, and the serving is huge!
- Base: Lettuce & Spinach
- Protein: Seared Tuna
- Cheese: Fresh Cheese
- Toppings: Almonds, Mushrooms and Quinoa
- Dressing: Lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper (kept it simple).
The variety to pick from is pretty big and if you’re feeling undecisive, there’s salads with ingredients picked out, like this wonton salad my friend ordered:
I would definitely recommend this place. Not only is it really healthy, but it’s pretty cheap (like everything in Peru!).
