While I’ve never seen the legendary “green flash” on the horizon at sunset, I can tell you the Green Flash Salad at Sun Garden on Siesta Key will make you a true believer in all things green. Fresh baby arugula and baby spinach, with a generous portion of sliced avocado, sliced radishes, julienne of crisp apple and house-spiced walnuts, are tossed with a light ginger vinaigrette. Large, perfectly seared blackened shrimp are the crowning glory ($14.95).

Don’t wait for sunset, though; Sun Garden is open for breakfast and lunch only.
