Looking for something different? This salad boasts an Asian flare with seared rare Ahi tuna, cucumbers, jicama, radish, and carrots, over a bed of Napa cabbage, then drizzled in miso peanut vinaigrette. It’s tangy and fresh, with the perfect balance of flavors. 

 

Warm Spinach & Chicken Paillard Salad

 

Purple hull peas are one of our favorite summertime vegetables and we love how they meld seamlessly into this warm summer salad. Wild mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, red bell peppers, pine nuts, goat cheese, olive oil, and Balsamic dressing finish off this delicious salad. 

 

Mediterranean Salad

 

A simple salad that many of our customers order on the regular, the Mediterranean salad is classic and delicious. You’ll love the warm pita and hummus served alongside a crisp salad loaded in olives, red peppers, artichokes, and more.
