Best Salad (2005)

Ruggles Cafe Bakery

Call it the salad for people who hate salads. The "warm baked Texas goat cheese salad with apples and toasted almonds in a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette" -- yes, this salad needs a nickname -- at Ruggles Cafe Bakery seems like an hors d' oeuvres tray on a bed of lettuce. A thick, fat slab of goat cheese caked in sliced almonds sits on a bed of mixed field greens with slices of sun-dried tomatoes and Granny Smith apples. The whole affair is topped with shredded Parmesan cheese and a creamy, tart, husky, semi-sweet sun-dried tomato dressing. Add a grilled chicken breast to make this a hearty gourmet meal.
