Culinary couple Quinn and Karen Hatfield opened their restaurant Hatfield's in a larger space on Melrose Avenue, where they continue to execute their critically-acclaimed New American cuisine.


  • For the salad:
  • 6-10 ripe, fresh seasonal fruits such as peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots and cherries (do not peel, unless you're using peaches)
  • Two bundles of ripped mint leaves
  • Ricotta Salatta
  • ½ cup roasted salted almonds, sliced
  • For the vinaigrette:
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 T. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 T. champagne vinegar
  • ½ c. olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Cooking Directions

    For the salad:

    Cut all fruit in half and sear them on the grill to get a good char and smokiness. Combine the grilled fruit, ripped mint leaves, ricotta salatta, almonds and vinaigrette (recipe below) and toss. Garnish with mizuna or spinach.

    For the vinaigrette:

    On low heat, combine the honey, lemon juice and champagne vinegar until well mixed. Remove from heat and add the olive oil and season with salt and fresh ground pepper.
