One of my favourite places to eat in the valley is Rogers Bakery and Cafe on College Avenue in College Place. It's also known as the Cookie Tree, and there is a second one in Walla Walla, but the CP location is my favourite. One of my favourite things about it is that every meal that comes with meat can be made vegetarian - using soy products instead of flesh, so you still get the protein without going carnivore. (Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against meat-eaters, it's just not for me.) This salad is not only huge and colourful, but it is also absolutely delicious. On top of the lettuce and cabbage is: black beans, corn, olives, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, onions, carrots, and, if you want it (which I don't) chilies, and finally, strips of grilled seasoned vegetarian chicken. Top all of that off with a homemade creamy pesto dressing and you've got yourself a filling and spectacular lunch you won't soon forget.
