Salads are new to me. Salads that mingle mellow and tart, crunchy and smooth, crisp and soft, salty and sweet. Salads that go beyond iceberg and carrot. Salads that enter dangerous territory: candied nuts, toothy cheeses, tangy fruits.

Raspberry Walnut Fetish: mixed organic lettuce, raspberries, candied walnuts, feta cheese, avocado, poppyseed dressing. Toss and devour.
