The dish:

Lemon Pepper Chicken Salad

From:

Pepperoni Grill, just inside the west entrance of Penn Square Mall, 1901 Northwest Expressway.

Locally owned Eateries Inc. is third owner for this concept with more than two decades under its belt. It began under Val-Gene vet Peter Holloway, who was stepping out on his own for the first time with wood-fired pizzas, house-made focaccia bread and olive oil and balsamic vinegar on every table. Eateries retook the company for Oklahoma about six years ago, and it's still going strong with a menu that's evolved in all the right places. Breads and desserts are made in-house.

The Food Dude says:

I don't eat entree salads too often, but when I do, I head for Pepperoni Grill. The spicy, pink Caesar-style dressing is legendary, and I daresay would do well any place we Okies like to drop Ranch dressing. But written over fresh greens and grilled chicken, it's a masterpiece. A sprinkling of pine nuts rings the crunch bell. Chopped tomato, Kalamata olives plus shaved red onion make it grounds for a coronation to summertime lunch royalty.
