For a healthy and fit living, & to cop up with our hectic routine along with other necessities we need to have a meal which is all energetic and nourishing. A similar solution for a wholesome, light , energetic meal is….Just Salad.
I got to experience their food and some new additions from the chef’s menu, they have a spread of healthy stuff which customers can customize according to their need and choices. It includes all green salads, different nuts, dried cranberries, grilled/tandoori chicken, shrimp,salmon, tofu, beef, mushrooms, seeds, sliced almonds, corn, beans, lentils, chick peas, organic quinoa, olives, variety of cheese etc.
Just Salad is the right place to go if you are to stay fit, burn your extra calories by indulging in the healthiest options here. The best thing is the quantity served in one bowl is good enough to fill up the tummy completely. You can have the same salad done in tortilla wraps. Seasonings and fillings are done according to the choice of customers, I asked to keep the seasoning seperately instead of mixing it inside.
The salad which we had was from the new addition in chef’s menu …. ‘’SHRIMP EL PASO GRILL’….. big sumptuous bowl of Romaine, grilled shrimps, avocado, cherry tomatoes, black beans, corn cheddar cheese, and crunchy onions. The dressing was Chipotle Vinaigrette.
One of the wrap we asked for was ‘TANDOORI FIRE’ …… which was a great mix of Romaine, tandoori chicken,feta cheese, pita chips, cucumbers & red onions. The dressing served separately was low – fat yogurt cucumber. That was so delicious & crunchy each bite was so delightful to go with yogurt cucumber dip. Flavor of onions along with other ingredients was too good.
Our second wrap was ‘ASIAN SESAME GRAIN’…… it was the mixture of organic mesclun ( green vegetables), Romaine, red cabbage, grilled chicken, wheat berries, organic quinoa,& edamame served with asian sesame dressing. Another good combination to try. Our cheerful attendant May Ann was a very good guide to us.
