Fresh & Local Flavor



Come in and taste what our local farmers and DLM chefs can do! We’ve got everyone’s favorites back this season including a couple new recipes you just have to try!

New! Creamy Cucumber Dill Salad

I grew up with my mom making this salad all summer long. I love it ice cold, right out of the fridge. We are now making this fresh for my DLM family with local cucumbers, fresh dill, sour cream, and sweet onion. YUM!

Homegrown Tomato Salad

Only available for a short time! We pick the best local varieties of ripe tomatoes and lightly dress them with a citrus and herb vinaigrette.

Ed’s Fresh Corn Salad

Our best-selling summer salad is back using sweet local corn. We shuck each ear by hand every day and can barely keep up with the demand. I think it’s so popular because it just tastes like summer. Fresh, simple, and delicious!

BLPeach Sandwich

If you like BLT sandwiches, you’ve gotta try this one! I think it may be the perfect summer sandwich. Our delicious bacon, lush ripe peaches, and peppery arugula all slathered with basil mayo and piled on top of our toasted Farmhouse Bread.

New from the DLM Kitchen!


Farro and Roasted Mushrooms
Nutty and good-for-you whole grain farro is tossed with slow-roasted fresh mushrooms for a side dish that sings with earthy flavor. I like it served room temperature, but this could be heated up for a side dish alongside a charred steak or tossed cold into your favorite lettuce salad.

Old-Fashioned Chicken Salad
We are Dayton’s expert on all things Chicken Salad- making several varieties from scratch every day in our kitchens. So why add another one? One reason is because we’ve listened to a couple folks who have requested no onions. Another nostalgic reason is that I grew up eating this particular version at my favorite Windy City department store. It has that old fashioned creamy and rich texture with no “weird” stuff in it like onions, bell peppers, or anything else that is not child or grandma friendly.

Hasselback Potatoes
These fun individual potatoes are cut like an accordion on purpose! All those edges lend a crisp texture outside, while remaining tender and moist on the inside. We drizzle Yukon gold potatoes with clarified butter and season with sea salt and black pepper — perfect with whatever you are serving for dinner tonight!

Pecorino Kale Salad
Fresh kale lightly tossed with Pecorino Romano cheese, toasted almonds, and sweet black currants. We dress this healthy salad lightly with DLM’s Organic Olive Oil and organic lemon juice. This salad is just so good I keep eating it. I love when food is not only good for you, but delicious!

Dill Pickle Dip
OK, I admit that I get extremely disappointed when my lunch doesn’t automatically come with a pickle. And I like a little hamburger patty with layers of dill pickles on it. If you are with me here on the pickle planet, this dip has your name all over it! Briny, vinegary, and just plain delicious — try it with pretzels or your favorite potato chip!

Individual Turkey Meatloaf
A family favorite recipe, we take our local fresh turkey and create a mini meatloaf that is perfectly sized and ready right now for dinner. They reheat beautifully and make a killer meatloaf sandwich when sliced. We’ve topped them with DLM’s own ketchup for a taste that will please everyone.

Come in and ask for a taste — it’s going to be a delicious month!
