Salads with a European Flair

Cafe European, 113 Hyde Park Ave. S., 813-254-9458 — The restaurant is popular with academics from University of Tampa and businesspeople working downtown. Cafe European's salmon salad ($6.95 lunch, $9.95 dinner, with extra fish and different dressing) is addictive. Crisp, fresh mix of Romaine and iceberg, tomatoes, cucumbers, grated carrots, shredded red cabbage and salmon — first poached, and then marinated overnight in a white wine concoction. The homemade dressing, a subtle mix of olive oil and red wine vinegar, is out of this world. The salad is accompanied by a slab of Cuban bread, and tastes best on a hot day, washed down with the restaurant's icy, flavorful tea.
