Roasted Salmon Salad


Craving the California coast but don’t see yourself landing in LAX anytime soon?  The tastes of California are closer than you think at The Greene House Kierland Commons.  The artful, seasonal menu follows the vibe of the California coast scene.  From the warm, cheery bungalow style décor to the delightful patio just perfect for sipping a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, its perfect setting for lunch with the girls or for entertaining the out of town friends.

On a recent trip to The Green House, I decided on the Roasted Salmon Salad ($16).  I have no problem ordering fish when I am actually in California, but always hesitate in Arizona.  It must be the lack of the ocean that causes the second thought. There is no need to worry as the fish is always fresh as well as their farm, fresh veggies.  The salmon was roasted with a crispy outside and tender, flaky on the inside.  It was served with cold, boiled fingerling potatoes and crisp butter lettuce.  The mustard, caper vinaigrette was delicious and I am actually still thinking about.  I want to put it on everything.  My foodie date had the Twin Kobe Beef Burgers ($13) served with crispy fingerlings.  Topped with aged cheddar and 1000 Island dressing it is a favorite of the man-crowd and burger lovers alike. 

There is something to please everyone on the menu from vegetarian options to the standard meat and potatoes fare served with coastal California charm.  On Sundays bottles of wine are 50% and when there is al fresco weather the coveted patio can be quite full so reservations are recommended during peak times.
