Fresh Airport Salads to Try on Your Next Trip

What do you think of when you picture fresh airport salads? After all, we’re so used to seeing the pre-made salads in airports that we might not even know what a fresh one would be like! Sure, a pre-made salad is great if you make it yourself. But who has the time? Especially before catching a flight! In fact, I’m usually the person that’s racing out to the airport hoping I won’t miss my flight.

Hunting for a fresh airport salad can be extremely hit and miss in an unfamiliar airport. However, we have managed to discover a variety of fresh airport salads with lots of hearty veggies to keep you healthy during your layover.

Furthermore, every Wednesday we share our best airport healthy food finds on Instagram using the hashtag #WellnessWednesday. We look for everything from healthy foodcourt spots to sit-down dining. Here are some of the top fresh airport salads I like.
