I feel like It’s such a build up when in reality it’s just a really simple, fresh salad and creamy house dressing. Which I guess actually is pretty fantastic because I love classic recipes. It’s why I think our fried chicken rocks, our taco stew is the perfect recipe, pizza sauce is the best you’ll ever make and our banana bread is the absolute best you’ll ever have. There’s just nothing like a classic.
