I grew up in the traffic and smog of Orange County, California. Learning about how my food was grown was often learned in a museum with pictures of happy cows living in a far off place explaining how we got our milk or a trip to my local farmers market where signs on vegetables were marked "locally grown" and those selling them could explain the growing process in great detail.
It wasn't until I spent some significant time up north that I really was able to see the rolling green hills with cows grazing and the hills full of grapes and organically grown produce that I could see how much attention and detail California puts into making sure that the food you and I eat is of the highest quality. California grows nearly half of the fruits, nuts and vegetables grown in the United States and 100% of the almonds consumed in the United States.

Our steak salad incorporates many of California's freshest ingredients like cheese, beef and produce. We're talking a mouth watering salad with lightly seasoned steak, bleu cheese crumbles, tomatoes, olives and topped with crispy fried onions. Grab your fork, it's time to eat!
