search and devour: schlafly bottleworks's spring salad

from the field green salad with the best vanilla vinaigrette we've ever had to the greens and grains (substitute baked chicken for match meatballs, of course), we almost always make room for the salads at bottleworks.  on our most recent visit, we were lucky enough to discover a salad on the specials menu: the spring salad.  with greens straight from schlafly's garden, the freshness and vitality of the salad were impressive; we loved, too, the mellow but delicious turnips and radishes.  combine all of that veggie goodness with the pistachio-encrusted goat cheese, and you've got yourself a helluva salad.  schlafly was serving the salad with some kind of meat, but we substituted match chicken, instead.  dear gods, is that stuff good!  it turned a very good salad into something exceptional.  here's hoping they make this a staple on their next menu.
