A Tomato Plant Together With “Dirt” Salad You’Ll Actually Dig

It’s non odd for me to bag a recipe persuasion from a local restaurant, but it’s non everyday that I’m inspired past times something I swallow at a bowling alley. This happened latterly at the Mission Bowling Club, a fun together with funky, six-lane bowling alley located merely a few blocks from our home, which despite the cacophony, features some of the City’s best bites.

In add-on to an otherworldly fried chicken appetizer, together with a “granulated,” aged beef burger some (including my married adult woman Michele) consider the best inward the City, the MBC likewise features daily specials, together with i such offering was described every bit an “heirloom tomato plant salad topped with a crispy rye crumble.”

That sounded slap-up to us, together with our server vouched for its excellence, together with thence nosotros happily included it with our starters. What nosotros didn’t know at the time, was that our server had defied the kitchen together with refused to role the dish’s official name, “tomatoes together with dirt.”

She made this stunning admission every bit nosotros raved close its deliciousness, together with admitted to going rogue together with changing the refer because she merely didn’t mean value that “dirt” sounded appetizing. What?! I persuasion this plate of tomatoes together with “dirt” was merely close the most creative matter I’d heard/seen/tasted inward a while.

I was this roughly going into that kitchen, ratting her out, together with peradventure getting a costless dessert for my trouble, but persuasion improve of it, together with decided to quietly complete the salad, knowing that I would part it here, muddied refer together with all.  Anyway, this is my version, together with I promise y'all laissez passer on this a seek soon. Enjoy!
