If you didn’t already know, Sweetgreen has recently introduced some new salads to their menu, including some seasonally inspired creations. Sweetgreen is the only place where, in my opinion, it is justifiable to pay $10 for a salad because they are just so freaking good. Earlier in October, the salad chain introduced three new signature salads, three fall inspired salads and three salads infused with delicious grains. Because of this menu revamp, Sweetgreen did retire some of their signatures, including the District Cobb, the Santorini and the Chic-P. But do not worry, fellow Hoyas, because you’ll be drooling once you hear about these new creations.
The Rad Thai: This salad is made with organic arugula and mesclun, sprouts, shredded cabbage, spicy sunflowers seeds, cucumbers, basil and citrus shrimp drizzled in a spicy cashew dressing. Yeah, seems pretty rad to me.
The Harvest Bowl: This salad incorporates organic wild rice with shredded kale, apples, sweet potatoes, toasted almonds, goat cheese and roasted chicken in a balsamic vinaigrette. Not only will this salad fill you up, but your taste buds will be in a daze of pure bliss.
The Seasonal Pick: This Turkey Day-inspired salad has organic mesclun, roasted turkey, roasted brussel sprouts and roasted sweet potatoes, covered with a cranberry vinaigrette. Yes, this could possibly put you in a Thanksgiving-like food coma. You’ve been warned.
Well, now you know what all the commotion is all about. Go ahead and venture away from your “usual” because these new finds are worth trying.
