CRISPY ARTICHOKE SALAD

Snappy Salads Crispy Artichoke Salad

Crispy Artichoke Salad

Red leaf and romaine lettuce, fresh basil, green onion, roasted red pepper, cucumber, crumbled goat cheese, Niçoise olives, our hand-squeezed Lemon Vinaigrette, and lightly fried artichoke hearts with housemade basil pesto make up the bold flavors of our Crispy Artichoke Salad.

The Story

I love this salad! Goat cheese, red peppers, Lemon Vinaigrette (yes, it is fresh-squeezed lemon juice), and the Niçoise olives make this the perfect combination of flavors. I love goat cheese but it can quickly overpower a dish if you don’t balance it with other bold flavors. Sometimes I don’t want meat on my salad, but do like to bite into something every now and then. To accomplish that, I breaded artichokes hearts and gently fried them, placed them on top and finished this “Bad A– salad” with a handmade basil pesto. I have a hard time not ordering this salad every time and once you try it, think you’ll agree with me.
