I have categorized The Southern Salad as Vegetarian and Vegan-Friendly, even as a source of Health Food, all of which is correct. But that doesn’t mean you can’t also get eggs, cheese, chicken, beef, and pork as part of a mighty feast — if that’s the way you want to go.
For a heartier meal, check out the Triple B Grain bowl — roasted Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and bacon, plus chunks of granny smith apple, avocado, quinoa, and sunflower seeds. This one comes with BBQ ranch dressing (which you apply yourself); and for a slight surcharge, it can be topped with crumbles of the famous artisanal blue cheese made at South Carolina’s Clemson University.
Whereas the Triple B is 781 calories (every dish has a calorie count next to it), the Mediterranean bowl is a mere 352. That’s the house lettuce blend, quinoa, roasted red peppers, olives, cucumber, artichoke, green beans, feta cheese, and sliced cucumber, with apple cider vinaigrette and a trio of good pita chips.
Toasts would be worthwhile if only for the bread they’re built on: tiles of crisp sourdough from Atlanta’s H+F Bread Company. Toppings include avocado spread, roasted beets and hummus, Nutella and bananas, and smoked salmon with cream cheese, cucumbers, pickled red onion, and dill. That last one is brilliant.
