Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? This Wednesday, Leafline Salad Company on Greenwich Avenue is treating customers to a complimentary midday meal: Choose from one of twelve chef-inspired salads as well as wraps and quinoa bowls (any salad can be served as a wrap or mixed into a quinoa bowl). “The idea is to kick off a healthy 2014 and help people stick to their New Year’s resolutions,” says Leafline owner Robert Kessner, whose menu includes many vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options. Leafline’s bestsellers are the Urban Cowboy, a hearty Romaine-based salad with barbecue grilled chicken, smoked bacon, grape tomatoes, corn, black beans and white cheddar cheese, and the Sweet Cobb, which has dried cranberries and granny smith apple slices tossed with the usual Cobb ingredients.

All of the salad dressings are homemade with fresh herbs and calorie counts are listed.

Kessner adds new seasonal salads every few months and the current choices start with healthy, dark greens and both are gluten-free: The Wedged Pear starts with baby spinach paired with pear, apple, walnuts, cranberries and brie cheese while the Winter Ave. mixes kale with turkey, sweet potato, pecans, celery, cranberries and cheddar.

Stop in between 12 and 3 p.m. on January 15 to enjoy one of these healthy lunches for free.
