Last Friday evening, my family and I had reservations at the Americana Des Moines!! (website http://americanadsm.com/) and oh… my gosh.. my tastebuds are still jumping for joy! We ordered tapas style and added a few entrees to the mix.. oh and a huge pomegranite salad all to myself… Everything was out of this world delicious!! If you are looking for a special place to go this weekend or anytime, I highly recommend you check this place out… they are also open for lunch… Awesome!
…now since I am head over heels for salads… I just had to experiment by attempting to recreate this Americana fantasy on a plate.. I even candied my own walnuts… successfully!! i know, lol .. I would have to say Americana’s version of pomegranite salad was my favorite, but here’s how I gauge if a dressing is good or not.. fighting the urge to figure out how to get my face in the bowl to lick it clean once the last bite is gone… yay, mission accomplished.. lol..
