What would it be and why?
My answer would have to be a salad with green goddess dressing from Coops. Yes, I know it's not very 'New Orleans' (seafood/ deep fried/spicy goodness it ain't) but I crave that stuff when I'm not in town. I've tried to make it myself, to no avail. It just isn't the same, so I always equate that taste with New Orleans, and it's just another reason to go back!
