We offer a wide variety of both side salads and green salads, all made on premises using fresh, seasonal ingredients. When ordering leafy green salads with a meal, we figure 4 ounces per guest. For other salads, often used as side dishes, the quantity to order depends on the total number of salads and side dishes ordered. The more variety ordered, the less you need of each dish, though you should have enough of each item to accommodate all of your guests. Need assistance? Please call!
