Subway's salads are a great value—just take a look at the math

Consider, for a moment, the Subway Veggie Delite salad. For $6.10, you get around 300 grams (about a cup and a half) of fresh, brightly colored produce (including lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives, green peppers, and red onions) that's already been washed, dried off, chopped, and dressed with oil, vinegar, oregano, salt, and pepper. You can also add a slice of cheese for no extra charge and a generous helping of guacamole for another dollar.

To make that same salad at home, assuming you already have the oil, vinegar, and spices on hand, you'll have to purchase a head of lettuce, some spinach, a tomato, a cucumber, a can of sliced black olives, a green pepper, and a red onion. If you want cheese, that will cost you extra. If you want guacamole, you'll have to either buy some premade or buy an avocado and make homemade guacamole. By our calculations, this haul will run you somewhere between $10 and $15. And if the benefit of grocery shopping is having food on-hand for another day, you're out of luck because much of what you've purchased (such as the tomato, the green pepper, the onion, and the avocado) can only be used for the one salad.

Of course, that doesn't even take into account the possibility that what you bring home from the grocery store might not be as fresh as you expected. For example, while we're fans of bagged salad, it's not always fresh. But at Subway, as with all chain restaurants, you're buying not just the meal, but also the reputation, which means you have every reason to expect that the salad you buy on any day you buy it will be made with only the freshest ingredients.
