Michael V’s

Michael V’s Restaurant and Bar is a locally owned restaurant with an ambiance all its own. Owners

Michael and Carol Minden have been providing delicious meals as a couple for years and for the last 9

years at Michael V’s.

The restaurant is very well known for its coconut cream pies but it seems that everyone has their

favorite menu item. As we were sitting down visiting with Chef Michael a customer approached raving

about her salad that had come with her dessert. She raved, “It is a dessert and a salad all in one”! After

eating the salad I have to agree. Chef Michael has been gracious enough to share this recipe with us.
