This is yesterday's lunch, but I had no time to post it until now. I wish I could say I made this salad, but I did not.
I had the lovely chance to spend my afternoon with my mom, two sisters, and a dear family friend who was in town. We went to Mimi's Cafe, which is a staple in my family. The menu is extensive (meaning even Cassie finds things she likes) and the food and service are always good. As some of you may know, I cannot stand chain restaurants. What a really mean is I am a snob and like to frequent places that are their own- no one else can claim they are the same. Mimi's is definitely a chain, which should tell you how great it is if I am singing its praises.
Yesterday we were all surprised to see they added to their already lengthy menu. There must have been 12 salads- hallelujah! I went for the honey dijon chicken salad with apples, tomatoes, some other bits of deliciousness I can't remember, and brie croutons. I was skeptical of these because of my cheese dislike, but brie is a cheese I still appreciate, so I went for it. The two large croutons were more like fried cheese sticks and for me they were a ""take em or leave em" kinda thing, but you cheese fans should be salivating right now.
Oh, and the salad was served with balsamic vinaigrette on the side.
