Order SALAD at a pizza parlor? Yes! The Gorgonzola Pear Salad with a flight of house made dressings, to be precise. A bed of cool crisp peppery baby arugula topped with perfectly ripened fresh pear slices, candied pecans, and crunchies. Each dressing re-interpreted the salad, like eating three different  meals. With the white balsamic vinaigrette the ratio of the mild, slightly acidic, slightly sweet white balsamic played perfectly with the herbs and good quality EVOO. Being from the south, sweet is always better, right? With the honey herb vinaigrette the chef uses the honey judiciously without overpowering the acidity of the vinaigrette and the herbs chime in with their own separate voices at all the right times. It’s like jazz for the tongue. The gorgonzola meets the perfect ratio of gorgonzola cheese- to-dressing. It’s enough to make your mouth happily surrender. Remember, you DO order salad at Brixx pizza parlor.
