Foodie Friday – Break from Holiday Shopping


DSC0069-2 Are you looking for a little break from the turkey and stuffing or looking to grab a bite to eat while enduring the madness of Black Friday shopping?  We suggest heading over to see Chef Bernie Kantak at The Gladly.  Three words my fellow foodies: Original Chopped Salad!   Self described as : “Often imitated I am corn, couscous, smoked salmon, asiago, pepitas, tomatoes, arugula & currants. All dressed up in a sassy buttermilk pesto dressing.”  It’ll refuel your body, while keeping it light, unlike how you may have eaten yesterday.  My favorite thing about this salad is everything, just kidding but not really.  What got me the first time was the unexpected texture of that couscous with the corn and then the sweetness of the currants and the creamy dressing.  It truly is the perfect after Thanksgiving meal.


If by chance you’re interested in filling up on some of Bernie’s other dishes, you can’t go wrong with the brussels sprouts and grits, the sausage pretzel and cheese or the pistachio chicken liver pate.  All these items are on their happy hour menu so head on over from 3-6pm and enjoy.   Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Meal, you know I did 😉 The Gladly
