I was thinking about this the other day and I remembered that you can go there and get any of their sandwiches in salad form. It's just like ordering a sandwich because you go through the line and pick out all the ingredients you want for your salad and then make it right in front of you. And since Subway totes the famous five dollar foot long, and their salads are basically a sandwich with no bread, well they also have five dollar salads. And a salad for five bucks is actually not too bad of a price these days.
For a long time I have avoided Subway because I felt like they are not as fresh as they always claim. I think I will reconsider my opinion of them now though. I won't say everything in my salad was amazingly fresh, but having full control over what I have in my salad and not getting weird looks from the staff as I create it is a huge plus. I for sure will go back to try some other salad combinations. Maybe not meatball though, that would be weird.
