La Boulange

I'm quite ashamed that this Bay Bread adjunct has been in my back yard for 2 1/2 years and I had usually just walked by it... Why, might you ask? Well, frankly, its outdoor seating was always filled with the denizens of the too frou-frou attractive and über-fit set of San Franciscans which set my teeth on edge. But I returned from Europe last night and my kitchen is empty and the ambient temperature outside is easily 30 degrees warmer from whence I came.

So, while walking up the street and considering the salad bar at Mollie Stones, I realized that La Boulange had salads and I *had* never really given them a try. Now I am a convert.

For a mere $9.00, I had one of the most exceptional and large Niçoise salads ever. I tend to be a bit spoiled with making a Niçoise with seared ahi, but good canned tuna is perfectly acceptable. It included very fresh and very thin haricot verts, an ample pile of olives, some halved cherry tomatoes, a quartered red potato, and a halved hard-boiled egg nestled with a bit of aioli. There was also a slice of really great bread with a pat of butter. Paired with a $3.00 lemonade, it made for a great lunch on a hot day and a poke in my complacent ass to go back and try more.
