A couple of years ago chef Sam Cahoon partnered with the NC Sweet Potato Commission to create a several recipes honoring on of the states most widely grown crops. Today, the Solterita salad, which includes sweet potato, roasted corn, white beans, avocado, jalapeno, queso fresca, grape tomatoes and cilantro, tossed in a red wine vinaigrette, can be found at Savorez, where the presentation is as delightful as the flavors. For those who might like to try this one at home, the recipe is available online.
 
Heirloom tomato and burrata, Brasserie du Soleil
 
While the Brasserie is known for its create-your-own salads, chef Marc Piscitello is serving up a plate of North Carolina-grown heirloom tomatoes and creamy burrata cheese topped with a balsamic reduction, brown butter croutons and micro basil. Enjoy it as a sharable starter or a summertime lunch.
 
Spicy Sonoma Caesar Salad, Chopt
