In keeping with its commitment to locally sourced and healthy foods, The Local (239-596-3276) builds its rendition of Caesar salad with organic kale greens instead of the traditional romaine lettuce. The restaurant’s signature salad, it gets brightened with lemon zest and tossed with pumpernickel croutons and a low-calorie version of Caesar dressing that cuts down on the olive oil, using house-made vegetable stock thickened with cornstarch.
Watermelon Salad | The Continental
The Continental’s summer menu offered a seasonal toss of watermelon, fresh ricotta cheese, watercress, and pumpkin seeds—light and refreshing with a dressing of watermelon juice and fresh jalapeños. (239-659-0007)
