On the menu, look for the Southern chopped salad, the harvest bowl (roasted chicken, roasted sweet potatoes, apples, local goat cheese, pecans, organic wild rice, shredded kale and balsamic vinaigrette) and the guacamole greens (roasted chicken, avocado, tomatoes, red onions, shredded cabbage, tortilla chips, chopped romaine, organic mesclun, lime squeeze and lime cilantro jalapeño vinaigrette).
