One place I’ve had on my radar for a long time is Mendocino Farms. I had my first Mendocino Farms experience in LA in June, and then a new location opened up in Costa Mesa and I literally went 3 times in one week. While there are tons of delicious menu options available, I’m here to tell you about the best salad at Mendocino Farms.
Usually I’m the person that wants to try all the things on the menu, but since I discovered the Sophisticated Chicken and Prosciutto Salad at Mendocino Farms, I can’t bring myself to order anything else.
Sure, I’ve tried bites of the Italian Love Sandwich (delicious), sampled their red beet and quinoa salad and always find myself intrigued by the seasonal menu items, but I can’t bring myself to order anything besides the best salad at Mendocino Farms (in my opinion).
The Sophisticated Chicken and Prosciutto salad has it all: mixed greens topped with fresh mozzarella, slices of chicken and prosciutto, grape tomatoes, honey roasted almonds, seasonal roasted vegetables, peppers and onions and comes with a basil pesto-balsamic vinaigrette. I mean, what’s not to love?
Now that I’ve waxed poetic about a salad, obviously I think you should try it if you ever happen to visit a Mendocino Farms. I also think it’s high time I recreate this at home.
Do you have a regular order when you go out to eat? Tell me I’m not the only one who orders the same thing over and over again.
