Quiche Lorraine & Stone Fruit Chicken Salad

With this summer heat presenting itself, most people prefer to eat lighter. This week at the Uptown Grill, we have a special summer salad that is light and refreshing. The stone fruit chicken salad is a great summer salad because it a great mixture of everyone's favorite summer fruits on a salad that is not just light, but also quite
filling. This dish features a breaded honey glazed chicken breast on top of a bed of arugula and spring mix. This salad is also topped with peaches, cherries, apricots, plums, nectarines, toasted almonds, grape tomatoes, and green onions with a light tarragon vinaigrette. With perfect outdoor-eating weather, this dish would be great to enjoy on our patio dining area!

Currently on special we are offering a mini pan of Quiche Lorraine with our mesculyn, walnut   and gorgonzola salad, served with a cup of our soup of the day.  Quiche itself is considered to be french. Its origins can be seen in English cuisine dating back to around the 14th century.  For those of you who may not
know what exactly quiche is, well it is most easily described as an open faced pie or pastry dish that is filled with a savory custard filling, meat, cheese and vegetables. There are many different variations of quiche depending upon what type of meats, cheeses and vegetables are used.  We have chosen to serve our own variation of a traditional Quiche Lorraine made applewood smoked bacon, comte cheese (which is french and its taste is strong yet sweet... it is delicious!) and caramelized vidalia onions.  I recommend coming in and  trying this dish pronto because we only make a certain amount of fresh quiche daily.
