The weekly specials at the Delmar included a really delicious Margherita salad. A mix of aristocratic greens like bibb lettuce, frisee, radicchio, topped with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and drizzled with a yummy balsamic vinaigrette.

Lupe enjoyed it so much on Sunday she went back to have it again on Tuesday, but they had taken it off the menu because of the salmonella-infected tomato scare. Lupe offered to sign a waiver. The salad was worth the risk. Alas, they turned Lupe down, so she had a Kingsland salad. Yummy, true, but not the delicious Margherita she was yearning for.

The bartender assured Lupe that he was campaigning to get the Margherita put on the menu permanently. Hopefully after the tomato scare is over they will offer it again. It is the perfect summer salad.
