NYC-based Just Salad reached a milestone on Long Island with the opening of its fifth store in Hauppauge. The new location follows those in Commack, Westbury, Oceanside and Huntington, all of which opened last year.

Diners choose a lettuce, wrap or grain bowl base, then pile on veggies, proteins, crunchy toppings and housemade dressing. If too many choices overwhelm you, there are 15 suggested combinations on the menu, including standards like Cobb ($12.99) and Caesar ($12.29) salads alongside modern creations like Tokyo Supergreens ($12.99) which features organic sesame tofu, edamame, avocado, carrots, broccoli and a sprinkling of furikake with miso ginger vinaigrette. Seasonal specials include the Honey Crispy Chicken with shredded cabbage, crispy onions, organic quinoa, corn, carrots, crispy chicken, and crumbled feta with honey mustard dressing ($13.99) and the Backyard BBQ with onions, corn, crispy chicken, and white Cheddar ($13.99). There’s also a shrimp Caesar. The brand’s “Earth-Friendly Salads” use vegan cheeses and plant-based meats.

The same instructions apply to wraps (starting at $9.99) and bowls (from $12.99) with warm ingredients ranging from sweet potatoes to brown rice to quinoa. There’s also avocado toast ($11.99) and soups ($3.99). Smoothies round out the offerings and cater to diets ranging from vegan to keto, paleo and gluten free.

True to its brand of living a greener life, Just Salad’s signature Reusable Bowl Program, offers diners the option of purchasing a reusable bowl to receive a free salad topping with every reuse. Founded in 2006, Just Salad has more than 80 locations across New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.

Just Salad, 410 Motor Pkwy., Hauppauge, 866-673-3757, Open Monday — Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday-Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
