IN WARMER MONTHS, I crave crisp, beautiful salads—what better inspiration for tending my own garden beds? What lovelier way to imagine what tiny seeds sowed with hope in the spring will grow up to be one day? The eponymous salad at Restaurant 415 is just about perfect for summer patio dining. It’s simple: crunchy romaine, coated with a perfect lemon and garlic dressing that manages to embody simplicity, all tart and pungent. Shaved parmesan ribbons and hearty croutons make this salad a meal, but a full, inventive menu offers plenty of nibbles for pairing or sharing as well. Order a cold Pinot Gris to go with, and celebrate the long, warm days ahead. 415 South Mason Street, Fort Collins, 970 407-0415,  Shawna Jackson
