This From The Earth Salad with Sherry Vinaigrette is aptly named after our nearby brewery where it can be found on the menu.

The ingredients in this salad are simple and colorful and fresh. Tangy feta, with blistered tomatoes and crisp corn pair perfectly with creamy avocado and fresh cucumber and greens.

Then there’s the Sherry Vinaigrette. Just the right balance of vinegar to honey to aromatic shallot and garlic.

I recently had the opportunity to prepare a Tailgate Luncheon for a very special Birthday Party!

When I sat down with my neighbor to plan the menu we got stuck on what type of salad to include.

Should we do a pasta salad like Italian Tortellini – decided on Three Cheese Mac ‘n’ Cheese instead.

Perhaps a great big Greek Salad with grilled chicken – we’ve already agreed on Mardi Gras Chicken Wings.

We went through this exercise for a few minutes before I posed this question….. What is your favorite salad? With a smile on her face she said there’s a salad at From The Earth that I love.

Bingo! We shall recreate that salad. Because with all that fun (and indulgent) Game Day food, it’s nice to have a great big salad!

FTE Local Salad

I made multiple FTE visits, each time ordering THE salad. I quickly became a fan too!

I’m just now noticing I should have halved my cherry tomatoes ;-)

This salad makes a wonderful lunch or light meal. AND you can easily make a big batch to serve at your next family gathering or potluck!
