When I go out for lunch often I’ll order some sort of salad and often the salad has nut, some sort of cheese and fruit. Usually but not always a protein like chicken is an add on. I recently had lunch at the newly opened Farm & Craft in Scottsdale AZ. The ingredients that my salad was made of were all organic, local and what seemed like farm fresh. My salad was made of organic fresh spinach, goat cheese that tasted fresh made, very good strawberries that tasted fresh picked, plain walnuts and balsamic vinaigrette. This was a good salad and was very dieter friendly. I have to guess but I think the amount of chicken was about two ounces but with the goat cheese and walnuts it was just enough food. Chicken was a four dollar add on so this salad was $13.00.

Amuse Bouche offers a Kale and Quinoa Salad with Toasted Almonds, Seasonal Fruit and Goat Cheese. I added the additional Chicken to my salad and the price came to $16.00. I do also note a fresh baked roll was made for me served with butter. This was the most expensive of the Fruit, Nut and Cheese Salads but it was also Forking Delicious!
I think the super sweet low acid pineapple was magical against the creamy mild goat cheese and the honey lime vinaigrette was memorable. Kale has some bite but the cranberries balance it out. A great play of flavors and textures also a generous amount of chicken. This salad is among the best entree salads I ever had.
