Chef and restauranteur Jose Andrés is inspired by vegetables. But its his liquid mozzarella that inspires us. Shaped like a tiny capsule, the mozzarella holds an explosion of fresh cream flavor. Think of the creamiest burrata you have ever tried, but a whole lot better. Paired with cherry tomatoes, this salad has enough texture, flavor and a good dose of Andrés' signature creativity to please anyone. So what if it costs about $4 per morsel?

Does deep-fried pork, coupled with sliced radishes, tomatoes, and red onions, really qualify as a salad? We sure think so. This signature salad at North Miami Beach staple, Yakko-San, is dressed with a homemade, secret sauce. The protein-to-vegetable balance might be a little off, but we are easily convinced by the crunchy bites of pork and fresh portions of vegetables. It also helps that this indulgent source of nutrients is less than $8.
