Best dinner-size salad: SOUTHERN BELLE SALAD at THE MILL

Best dinner-size salad

Not only is it a perfect melange of sweet and savory — crispy romaine topped with red onions, candied pecans, mild sage derby cheese crumbles and dried apricots tossed in a honey vinaigrette — but with its generous serving of Southern fried chicken, the Southern Belle Salad adds up to one fine meal of greens and protein that leaves you feeling satisfied (and more or less healthy) at its conclusion. –Leilani Polk
