Mountains to Moab: Visiting Utah's Montage Deer Valley in Simply Buckhead

As the tiny private plane soared above the mountains, still dappled with winter snow, and headed toward the red rocks of Moab, Utah, I tried to wrap my brain around the adventure to come. 

Thanks to the Montage Deer Valley resort in Park City, I was about to enter a fantasyland for outdoor experiences. Check out one of my latest pieces for Simply Buckhead magazine to find out if this property might be a summer vacation fit for you... 

Sky’s the Limit Salads at Salata

Bean sprouts, feta cheese, pesto chicken, oh my! A lunchtime salad from Salata is anything but boring, y’all.

Recently, the Atlantic Station location (there are a few across the ATL) invited me in for a complimentary meal — and I gladly accepted. Here are three reasons why I think you should give this fast, fresh food spot a try.

  • All the toppings. We’re talking 50+, folks. Pumpkin seeds. Jicama. Beets. From the exotic to the familiar, there are options to suit any taste buds. Plus, you can choose from a variety of proteins ranging from chicken to shrimp and several yummy dressings.
  • Friendly faces. I was really impressed by how upbeat the people behind the counter were. My order was taken with a smile, and my questions were gladly answered.

  • You’re in and out. All you do is step up to the counter, pick your ingredients, and have your salad plated or packed up for take away. It's a perfect option if you’re crunched for time and need a quick and healthy lunch.
