Have you ever eaten at Canlis in Seattle? If not, their salad should be on your foodie bucket list. Not only does it have the perfect balance between salt and texture but it's kind of like a Caesar salad was told it couldn't do better and said, "Here, watch my beer." It features these delicoius "petals" of tomatoes alongside fresh herbs to create an amazing flavor you won't find elsewhere. Yes, there's mint in it; there's also bacon, house made croutons, scallions, oregano and Romano cheese.
The Canlis salad has a simple but laborious dressing that simply takes a deft hand to create as well as local romaine lettuce. Altogether it's one of the most delicious salads in the Northwest.
