Last week I went shopping with Marlo and we stopped at the Nordstrom Cafe in Bellevue Square for a quick lunch.
Marlo had the turkey cranberry sandwich, which she said was really good. I had the Salmon Nicoise (pronounced NEE-swahze) and was BLOWN AWAY.
It was, quite simply, the best salad I have ever had in my entire life.
It was comprised of mixed greens dressed in a balsamic vinaigrette - mine could have been much lighter dressed, which I will specifically request next time I go. On top of that there was new potatoes (pretty sure these were Yukon Gold), steamed green beans, tomatoes, capers, Nicoise olives, and hard-boiled eggs. All of this was topped with a piece of herb grilled salmon.
I wish I had thought to snap a picture of the salad before Marlo and I dug in - maybe on a future visit. It was pretty, but it tasted even better. I don't particularly enjoy shopping; however, I'll at least have something to look forward to when taking a break from a future shopping excursion.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ordering this salad from Nordstrom's Bistro. At less than $10, it was a bargain as well.
