MARQUETTE — The response was good when Entre Amigos restaurant at 142 W. Washington St. announced its Search for Superior Salad contest. But out of the 65 entries, only four could win. Restaurant manager Terry Hendrickson tasted the recipes and awarded $100 gift certificates to the winners, who will have their names and dishes mentioned on Entre Amigo’s menus. The winners were Lisa Clements of Northern Michigan University, who entered a Caesar salad; Sharon Farrell of Marquette, who won twice with her Mexican pasta salad and chili chicken salad entries; and Cheryl St. Amour of Ishpeming, who prepared a marinated vegetable salad.
