Late summer is upon us and the air is often hot and thick in Brooklyn. It becomes increasingly difficult to find cuisine that is both light and refreshing, but delicious and satisfying enough to qualify as a meal. We are here to offer solutions.
Imagine biting into a piece of juicy watermelon, it's refreshing and subtly sweet flavor expertly complimented by tangy feta cheese and spicy leche de Tigre dressing. You're surrounded by lush plant life in a garden and every bite is better than the last. This is only one of the five different sensory experiences you can have when you pick 3 of Petee's brand new Summer Salads.
Each of our five Summer Salads has unique complimentary flavors. Choose the three that call to you, and experience summertime bliss in our light and airy café in Clinton Hill. It's kind of like sampling a flight of beer, except much more nourishing to the body.
Take a closer look at our Summer Salad options:
Our roasted tomato salad with green beans, ricotta, lemon verbena, cherry tomatoes, and olives is a tempting spin on a traditional Greek salad.
Miso honey roasted Chinese eggplant is paired with pickled radish, pea shoots, mint, and chives to create a colorful, nutty and enigmatic blend of sweet and savory flavors.
Esquites- roasted sweet corn with ancho chile, jalapeño, cilantro, and chili lime mayo. This Mexican street corn salad is just the right amount of creamy and spicy. The corn comes straight from Petra's parents' farm to your salad, for the most intrinsic farm-to-table experience possible.
Feast your eyes on watermelon with quick pickled cucumbers, cilantro, feta, leche de Tigre dressing and pumpkin seeds. Leche de Tigre, which translates to "Tiger's Milk" is a delightfully tangy dressing made with ginger, orange, garlic, and jalapeño flavors to round out this salad's flavor profile.
The final option is composed of rye berries, roasted carrots, odda peppers, and fresh basil. The basil in this hearty salad is grown in our backyard garden, which you may find yourself basking in as you enjoy your summer salad trio.
Petee's Café in Clinton Hill is open everyday from 10 AM - 10 PM. Stop in to try each of our new Summer Salads sometime soon and treat yourself to a slice of pie for dessert. Our seasonal flavors at the moment are Peach, Blackberry Dream, and Blackberry Nectarine. See you soon!
