House caesar salad – The Old Clam House

House caesar salad - The Old Clam House
Garlic croutons, shaved Spanish manchego el trigal cheese. Side $8.99

This Casesar was not very impressive. It was over dressed and there were hardly any croutons to be found. Such a disappointing start to a meal…

Warm bread salad – Jardiniere

Warm bread salad - Jardiniere
Farmanova beet, arugula, crescenza. $16
Jardiniere, San Francisco CA

I liked this salad enough, but it was more of a leafy green salad with some bread thrown in than an actual bread salad. I liked the flavors, but I felt a little misled from the menu description. Definitely wouldn’t be on my list of things I have to try before I die.

Lemongrass pork salad box – Asian Box

Lemongrass pork salad box - Asian Box
Asian salad, bean sprouts, pickled vegetables, jalapeno, scallion oil, crispy shallots, chopped peanuts, fish sauce. $8.75
Asian Box, San Francisco CA

I love the flavors of their boxes, but they’re just not filling for me especially when it’s salad instead of rice. This time around, the lemongrass pork was a bit on the dry side. I’m glad that I got the fried shallots though – they tasted good.

Dungeness crab and bacon prawn cobb salad – Barking Frog

Dungeness crab and bacon prawn cobb salad - Barking Frog
Blue cheese, hard poached egg, tomato, avocado-champagne vinaigrette. $24
Barking Frog, Woodinville WA

Now this is my kind of salad! What’s not to love? You’ve got crab, prawns, bacon, eggs, blue cheese, and avocado. I’m in heaven! Even though I wasn’t feeling it at first, the service was actually really friendly (although M.I.A. at times).

Farmers lettuce salad – Volt

Farmers lettuce salad - Volt
Tuscarora Farms lettuce, avocado puree, diced cucumber, harissa vinaigrette, pickled shallots, toasted caraway seeds crumb. Tasting menu $95
Volt, Frederick MD

Maybe I’m just not a salad person, but this dish was lost on me. I guess I can appreciate the fresh ingredients and the techniques used to create all the components, but I still wasn’t satisfied eating this salad. To each his own…

Cheddar chive buttermilk biscuit. This was SO good! I could live off these. 🙂
