Saladworks partners with dietitian to develop flexitarian menu items
Saladworks has teamed up with Philadelphia-based registered dietician Katie Cavuto to put a flexitarian spin on its menu as more people on the East Coast are choosing to eat less meat, said CEO Patrick Sugrue.
"Our first guiding principle when working on our menu is that the food must be ridiculously delicious," he said in an email to FastCasual. "Adding fresh ingredients like red peppers, that boast more vitamin C than an orange, new lettuce blend and house-made honey miso dressings are just some of the healthful additions you will see on this salad and in the coming year at Saladworks."
So far, Cavuto has created the Om salad, which features lettuce, red cabbage, orange segments, red peppers, sesame seeds, roasted broccoli, and brown rice — topped with a homemade honey miso dressing. This is the first time that Saladworks is making a homemade dressing, focused on a cleaner eating experience, Sugrue said.
The launch of the Om Salad and homemade Honey Miso Dressing marks a significant and permanent shift in Saladworks' product offering toward healthier, better-for-you menu items, Sugrue said.
