When I worked full time in the corporate world, I treasured my lunchtime with colleagues. The work may have been difficult, but spending time with the people who shared my daily grind was a pleasure. The camaraderie of a large workplace is something that I miss, now that I’ve started my own small business. If I ever go back to corporate life, it might be to fulfill the loneliness of daily activities!
The upside of my own business is that I have the flexibility to visit my old co-workers and still have lunch with them. A few days ago, I had the opportunity to have lunch at a downtown restaurant that re-opened about two months after Hurricane Sandy devastated the area. Dig Inn Seasonal Market is a small chain restaurant that changes it’s menu (you guessed it) seasonally. The few things that I’ve had there have been yummy, until I tasted this salad that I thought was phenomenal.
When things like this happen, I become obsessed with attempting to duplicate the flavor. I was consumed with recreating this salad so much that I somehow managed to mention Dig Inn or the salad components into every conversation that I had for the better part of a week. Yes. That obsessed.
I’m thrilled with the result and am so excited to share it with you!
