5) SUSTAINABLE SALADS
Santa Fe residents – as you learned roaming the Farmers- Market – care where their food comes from. No wonder Vinaigrette (709 Don Cubero Alley; 505-820-9205; vinaigretteonline .com) was an immediate hit when it opened in 2008. The brightly colored cafe has a menu based on organic greens grown in the nearby town of Nambé. Choose a base – Caesar, Cobb and Greek are possibilities (around $10) – then add diver scallops or hibiscus-cured duck confit ($7) for a satisfying meal. Wines by the glass start at a very friendly $6.
