Sometimes (read: all of winter) I’m like “ick, salad” and other times (most of summer) it seems like the most perfect idea.
This month – which how is it possible, that it is already half over?? – Sweetgreen, the as locally-sourced-as-possible, salad brain trust of local Georgetown grads that is taking the NE + MidAtl corridor by storm has figured it out, almost.
Their July Salad features mesclun greens, basil, peaches, slivered almonds, goat cheese and balsamic dressing. Normally, I’m a big fan of goat cheese, but on a whim (and because they were out) we swapped for white cheddar. This is a good move, I promise. The white cheddar offers an extra salt kick in an otherwise pretty close to perfect summer salad.
Get your greens – before they wilt!
