Served at room temperature your body will absorb the nutrients better, BUT this can be very refreshing served over ice as well.
Salads Here to Stay…
Asian street food and cool craft beer collide at Tuk Tuk Tap Room…the perfect Pho-mentation as they like to call it! This Myanmar (Shan State) Tomato Salad is a menu fixture they’re known for: plum and green tomatoes, lime, dried shrimp, long bean, and peanuts make for an insanely fresh side salad served with puffed rice crackers or steamed jasmine rice.
Kale, Roma tomatoes and fresh avocado tie this killer Kamut Chicken Salad from the good folks at Sysco together. It’s the dressing, however, that really did us in…a devilishly DELICIOUS lemon-lime Caesar!
The Big Finish…
A second, yet equally enticing entry from Zedric’s: a Flat Iron Steak with homemade sweet potato hash in a zesty Chermoula sauce. Chef Lutton’s Chermoula is a mixture of herbs, lime juice, olive oil, salt and a few others. Find the full recipe above. Truly an impressive (and easy) entrée fit with flavor!
