Salmon BLT - Dogwood To-Go

Sandwich Contents: House-made sourdough bread, a filet of wild-caught salmon, slices of heirloom tomatoes, strips of local bacon, hunks of romaine lettuce and a slathering of whole-grain mustard mayo. Comes with a side of house-made, russet-colored potato chips and a pickle. (Sorry, no picture this week)

Kate's Review: This week brings us to Dogwood; one of my favorite restaurants since it features local ingredients and the dishes are in season. The salmon BLT sounds good to me; I like salmon and bacon although I’ve never had the combination before. The mustard added a kick to the salmon which was really fresh. After my first bite I had to discard the bread; not because it wasn’t good but because the salmon fell out and didn’t want to fight with my food that day. I did enjoy the sandwich but it wasn’t anything to rave about. I’ve had better from there and elsewhere.

Nicole's Review: Since this sandwich was only available on the To-Go menu, we had to bring it back to the office to eat. I actually sat in the car while Kate went in to pick it up, so I can’t even comment on the atmosphere. Anyway, about the sandwich.... I hated it. I had one bite and spit it out. I’m a bias judge though, I don’t like salmon. I want to like it and I try to like it, I just don’t. If the salmon wasn’t on the sandwich, I would have probably liked it, but honestly, without the salmon, it just looked like any other BLT. Nothing seemed really special about it.
