Sampled: Grilled chicken salad and hummus, take-out style, near the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.
Where: Dasks Greek Grill (6522 S. Big Cottonwood Canyon Road, Holladay)
High & Low: The only thing better than the perfectly-concocted hummus and pita combo at this small eatery might be the three slices of grilled chicken sitting atop their grilled chicken salad. The hummus is finger-lickin’ good; the pita is soft and filling—and there’s enough for a party of three. Pair it with a salad, and you’ve got yourself a hearty, balanced lunch on the go. Though the lettuce could be a tad crisper, it’s made up for with ripe (not pink) tomatoes, fresh Feta, tasty olives and tangy dressing. With dishes this good, you might want to stop by before and after your hike.
How much: Grilled Chicken Salad, $7.25 for small; hummus, $5.29
