I'm looking for nominations for the best whole-meal salads here in Albuquerque.
Basically, this means the salad must be:
1. not a side salad
2. contains notable amounts of protein
3. Not be laden down with mayo based dressing. Ick.
My further wish list item is of course, that these salads be EXCELLENT. Inventive, flavorful, lovely - they gotta be prize champions. *grin*
Existing nominations that I already know about (and to give you an idea of what I am looking for):
Chop Chop Salad (Relish) - tasty combo of chicken, beets, veggies, eggs, etc etc.
Il Vicino Salad (Il Vicino) - I used to love this, now its just ok. Poultry, eggs, cheese, nuts on top of romaine.
So.... load me up - I need more ideas. Is there a decent Nicoise in this town? THANK YOU!
