According to research from Dole Fresh Vegetables, there are 21 “Top Salad Cities” in the United States. Drawn from 18 months of internal research, Dole found that residents in the cities on their list may actually eat more salad per person compared to the national average, or they may be more willing to experiment with new salad blends or serve salad as a main course.

While somewhat obvious foodie cities like Los Angeles and New York City make the list, other less likely metro area, like barbecue meccas Dallas and Kansas City. More and more Americans are looking to raw fruits and vegetables,  especially in salads as a way to lose weight and boost their health. Plus, eating more greens can be a great way to support your local, organic small-scale farmers.
