    This salad was pretty good – no major complaints, but it wasn’t “the best salad I’ve ever had” or even one of the top TJ’s salads like some others I’ve had. The dressing’s good, and the ingredients blend together fairly well, if a little boring.

    One of my favorites, though sometimes the lettuce is not fresh. The salad dressing is tangy but not too much so, and it’s quite a nice sized portion.

    The Pasadena salad is my favorite. I do get three lunches out of the box. As a former reviewer said, sometimes the romaine lettuce starts to brown by the second or third day, but not usually. The almonds and rice noodles add a wonderful crunch. I also add about a third of an avocado to it and mix well. I usually have it for lunch at least three days per week.

    This salad is one of best I’ve had..the dressing alone is really good . Does Trader Joes sell this dress separately?

    I have just finished this salad. The dressing is gr8- there wasn’t enough, lol. Good size for a dinner. I couldn’t get enough of it. I added onions and chopped boiled egg

    This salad is inspired by Green Street Restaurant (a Pasadena legend!) Their salad is called The Dianne. Check it out! This TJ version is great!

    I have a the Pasadena salad several times, it’s my favorite. I add a small can of mandarin oranges and 3 or 4 chopped green onions. I also add their Asian salad dressing for a little more dressing than what is provided. It is delicious and every bit as good as Green Street “Dianne” salad which I have me any times in the past.

    Was pleased to see the Pasadena Salad back in stock. I love the dressing and the crunchy noodles and almonds. If you sold the dressing separately, I would definitely purchase it! My favorite TJ salad!
