Summer Salads

For a limited time, come in and enjoy three salads that feature fresh ingredients and big flavor.

  • Chili-Lime Ginger Salad with seared chicken is a nod to Thai cuisine with bold flavors like ginger, mint and lime, the crunch of red pepper and chopped peanuts, and a dressing that’s sweet with a slight kick.  And with three ounces of chicken, this entrĂ©e salad is sure to satisfy.  It’s like a refreshing spring roll in a bowl.

  • Backyard Barbecue Chicken Salad with fresh-cut corn is new to some guests but will be familiar to others.  The salad was first introduced last summer and has been brought back by popular demand. The hearty, yet nutritious salad features marinated pulled chicken breast with fresh-cut summer corn, ripe Roma tomatoes and chopped red cabbage, and is served over mixed greens and tossed with a smoky coleslaw dressing. This “perfect picnic plate” is a leafier version of your own backyard barbeque.

  • Spinach & Fresh Fruit was first introduced in the summer of 2011 and quickly became a menu favorite. The salad is a wholesome meal that includes fresh strawberries, pecans, crispy bacon and house-made croutons atop tender spinach leaves finished off with blue cheese crumbles and a balsamic fig glaze. The combination of sweet, salty, crunchy, and creamy satisfies every taste bud

  1. Former employee: for the spinach salad, we literally mixed 50% Ken's Balsamic and 50% sugar to make the dressing!
