I’m so glad that my fellow diner at Beckley BrewHouse suggested the fresh strawberry salad as part of our lunch. I start craving salads around this time of year when the weather gets warmer, and the fact that strawberries are in season (or close to it) made this one all the better.

Other than fresh strawberries, the field greens salad was topped with candied walnuts and crumbled bleu cheese, and tossed in a strawberry viniagrette. It hit the spot. We also had the pesto margarita pizza — basil pesto sauce, mozzarella, parmesan and fresh tomatoes — which was tasty as well, but I think I was in more of a salad mood.

And speaking of springtime weather, the majority of the BrewHouse’s dining area is outside, so take advantage of the restaurant’s patio before it gets too hot.
