A Simply wonderful Lunchtime Salad

Sixy Beast | Nov 11, 200404:02 PM

I was at Tabla (a little cafe hidden away in Larkspur) for lunch again. It was my third visit. Previous times I had the Dosa, so I confused myself, on such a rainy day, to suddenly act quite out of character, and pick a salad.

A glistening pile of lemony dressed spinach leaves, English peas and fennel shavings, with hints of fresh dill and mint interspersed here and there were topped with ample, succulent slices of smoked salmon. On the side was a little hard boiled egg, still warm and sprinkled with freshly ground pepper. Absolutely perfect!

Salads can so often seem like a healthy chore, but this was a sucessful and pleasurable plate, totally enjoyed by someone who isn't even that crazy about salad, generally . Tabla have gotten my attention. I was only so so with the Dosa on previous visits because they are made from sourdough which I don't like.

NB. I asked when ordering if the smoked salmon would be hot or cold (I dont like it hot). I was told cold. But then the server rushed back to tell me he'd been wrong and that it was designed to be hot but he could do it with regular uncooked smoked salmon for me. Phew.

Price = not exactly cheap - as i recall somewhere around the 10 or 11 mark, but any place that makes me actually yearn to eat healthy food is worth its weight in gold to me
