Chef’s Market, the local favorite cafe and catering in Goodlettsville, is hosting a customer-inspired summer salad contest, and the winning salads will be rotated onto the restaurant's menu over the summer.
The contest is open to individuals with a salad recipe that uses fresh summer flavors to make Chef Kathy Doak sit up and take notice. Winners will receive two dinner passes to Chef’s Market and have their salad featured in the Chef’s Market restaurant.
The contest continues through Labor Day, so you can submit recipes throughout the rest of July and August. Go on — use it as a reason to write down that favorite concoction or unearth the formula for that special salad that always has people asking you to bring it for potluck.
The first winning salad, from Suha Dabit, is Sicilian Pesto Bowtie Pasta Salad, a more-ish melange of prosciutto, pine nuts, pesto, tomatoes and spinach. I'd order that, no doubt.
A new winning recipe is selected every two weeks. Email the recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, contact information, recipe and a little inside info on why you love the recipe you're submitting.
