My husband and I had dinner at Tyler's in Durham a few weeks ago, and on the seasonal menu is a wonderful arugula salad with pomegranate dressing. I would love to have the recipe for that dressing. - K.R., Durham
I work in the American Tobacco Complex in downtown Durham. I frequent Tyler's Taproom a lot, and I love their pear salad with the mustard vinaigrette. Would you see whether they would be willing to share the recipe? - A.J., Durham
