This salad is so simple and so delicious! It is my copy-cat version of my favorite salad at my favorite lunch spot in downtown Birmingham. Urban Standard is a quaint little café and coffee shop, and it’s where I fell in love with goat cheese. I first learned about it in the American Way magazine on an airplane one time. I was swooning over a picture of strawberry cupcakes and when I figured out that those cupcakes were sold WHERE I LIVE, I almost freaked out. But then I remembered they frown upon that on airplanes…..so I just sat there with my mouth opened. Maybe a little drool came out, maybe it didn’t.
I had to try it! I got a cupcake, of course, but what I really loved was their super foods salad. I still have not branched out enough with the rest of the menu, and since the restaurant is kind of far away from my work, I do not eat there as much as I would like. But I always come back to this salad. I have made it several times and I never get sick of it. Just try it. You’ll love it!
I hope you give this a try (or at least something like it). I don’t remember the first time I had fruit fruit on my salad, but I’m so glad I tried it because it my favorite way to eat it now! Need another idea? Try this Figgy Peach Salad! Or this Grapefruit and Mango Salad with Avocado. Or if the idea of fruit on lettuce freaks you out, try this Fresh Fruit Salad.
