This year we moved Strawberry month from May to June. One of our most popular salads requested is Strawberry Fields Tossed Salad with Caramelized Walnuts. I thought I would share this recipe so that is can be strawberry month every month at your house. Enjoy!!

Are there any plans to open a Sweet Tomatoes in Alabama (possibly Montgomery)?
I think your restaurant would be very successful here.

Thanks in advance for your response.

No plans for Alabama right now but we are growing each year.

Thanks again for another great recipe!

Any plans to open a store in Miami?

We would love to see Sweet Tomatoes come our way too in Mobile, Al.
We lived in Tampa, FL for a few years and Sweet Tomatoes was a twice weekly visit.
When we had visitors, we took them there too.
Thanks for the recipes too.
Love it!

Is the prepackaged broccoli salad available at Costco in Texas? I have looked for it and could not find it in Arlington.

Joan’s Broccoli Madness is not available in Costco in Texas yet… but hopefully soon!!

Sweet Tomatoes is my favorite place to go here in Tucson. I love going as much as possible which right now isn’t frequently enough! That will change shortly, hurrah!

Will you share your recipe for tuna/pasta salad that you serve? Thanks!

Are you ever going to put a Soup Plantation or Sweet Tomatoes in Huntington Beach, CA? I would love to see one someplace by the beach.
