Cafe Blue Heron’s Warm Vegetable Salad
By Kristi Kates | May 6, 2017
Summer can arrive a little slowly to northern Michigan. Sometimes, without those warmer temperatures encouraging you along, you’re just not ready for salad season yet.
The Blue Heron Cafe and Bakery in Cadillac has a flavorful alternative to get you through lunchtime during shoulder season – its warm vegetable salad.
Second only to the cafe’s signature roasted vegetable lasagna (a customer favorite), this earthy salad tosses oven–roasted sweet potatoes, tangy turnips, bittersweet Brussel sprouts, apple chunks and garlic in a well–balanced honey dijon dressing for a surprisingly filling meal composed entirely of vegetables and fruit.
If you’re looking to amp up this delicious combo further, you can add bacon or chicken (for a small extra charge) to top off the dish with even more flavor.
The warm vegetable salad is available at Blue Heron Cafe and Bakery at 304 N. Mitchell Street in Cadillac. For more information, visit online at cafeblueheron.com or call (231) 775-5461. Open Mon.–Fri. 6am–4pm and Sat. 6am–2pm.
