On Sunday I had quite possibly the greatest salad I have ever, ever had. Yes, I do believe, that in my 28 years of existence, I’ve not had a better salad than this salad that I had for brunch at The Café this weekend. I love The Café because they use local and sustainable fare from mostly better-than-organic farms (yeah, that’s a thing), so their menu is constantly changing based on the season. This winter salad was on the menu, and I cannot get over it.
What made it so great? Everything. No, seriously. Everything.
I have never ordered a lunch-type item for brunch before, but when I saw this on the menu, I had to get it:
“WINTER SALAD: wheat berries, pomegranate, roasted beets, winter greens and toasted walnuts tossed with brown butter vinaigrette + goat cheese crostini”
Of course I got the dressing on the side, and I scraped the goat cheese off the crostini (it’s just a big, crusty piece of bread). But damn, this salad was amazing — kale, chard, beets, pomegranate, and the walnuts seemed to be toasted in a peppery mix of some sort.
I’m going to go to brunch with another group of friends on Sunday. And you can guess what I’m getting. I’m planning to pay extra attention to what was on the walnuts so I can make this salad in all its glory at home (if I can ever figure out how to peel a pomegranate without making the house look like a murder scene).
Do you have a “best I’ve ever had” for a food to share?
