Our Guest Favorites promotion is this month and is one of my personal favorites. And that’s because so many of our guests favorites are mine as well, two in particular come to mind; the first is our Classic Greek Tossed Salad. I grew up in the Chicago area and had many fantastic meals in the restaurants in the Greek Town area of Chicago. My favorite was always the Greek Salad, even as a teenager I loved it. As I traveled around other parts of the country in later years I would often try Greek Salads in other restaurants and always found they did not live up to my expectations. Years later when we were adding this recipe to the Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes menu we were clear that we wanted a Greek Salad that was as authentic as possible and would not be doing some new twist on the classic recipe. I can proudly say we have succeeded and I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I do.
The second recipe is our Cream of Broccoli soup. I will tell you that while I was enjoying Greek Salads in Chicago, I was not eating a lot of broccoli. And while that has changed and I do enjoy broccoli now (but it is still not my favorite vegetable), there is something about this soup and the flavor that I do like and every time I enjoy a bowl I feel great about myself. The perfect solution to eating more broccoli for me is the Cream of Broccoli Soup we are serving this month. It clearly has lots of broccoli, sometimes I add more from the salad bar, and is in a wonderful wholesome full-favored cream base. I enjoy our soup with a couple of pieces of our Garlic Fococcia for a hearty meal.
I hope you are enjoying your favorites this month as much as I am. And I ‘d love to hear a little about why your favs are special to you.
Thanks for being our guests,
