Grain Train’s Awesome Chicken Salad

By Clark Miller | Sept. 22, 2018

Lunch at Petoskey’s Grain Train Market Café offers a few tasty surprises, including the (correctly named) Awesome Chicken Salad. An invention of Chef Evans Woodhouse, it’s one of the most popular items on the menu. Meal enough for a power lunch but not so filling that it makes your head hit the desk mid-afternoon, the Awesome has eight ingredients in just the right proportions: vegan mayo, curry powder, celery, walnuts, green onions, wild rice, roasted chicken and, to round it out, dried cherries. It comes plated atop a bed of greens. The price is $7.99, but for carb-craving customers with a bigger appetite, there’s also the Awesome Chicken Sandwich for $10.99. It includes pea shoots, a side of salad, and a house-made Brussels sprout-bacon slaw. Find it at 316 E. Mitchell St. in downtown Petoskey, open 7/7/7 — seven days a week from 7am until 7pm.
