On a hot summer day, there is nothing more refreshing than a fresh, tasty salad! Especially as I am trying to get back on my weight loss track after a busy summer full of eating stuff I probably should't have!
So when I don't want to cook but I don't want to sacrifice my good nutrition, I head to one of my favorite restaurants - Noodles & Company and grab one of their NEW delicious and fresh salads!
Noodles & Company recently launched three summer salads that I am LOVING– the new Napa Market Salad with Chicken, Chicken Veracruz Salad and the guest-favorite Med Salad with Chicken – as part of their new “World Tour” menu.
In addition to using authentic ingredients such as Gala apple slices, fresh, hand-cut corn and avocado, the salads also feature bacon never given antibiotics or hormones, which further demonstrates the brand’s continued commitment to real food, real cooking and real flavors as part of their Made. Different. positioning – they never use any artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives in any of their dishes and that means so much to me!!
And what I love even more is I get to go on a culinary journey through Mexico, California and Greece with these three bold and flavorful salads!
I first started out by trying the *NEW* Napa Market Salad with Chicken!
Fresh and flavorful market ingredients embody the Napa Market Salad with Chicken. Mixed greens are layered with Gala apple slices, Roma tomato, red bell pepper and pulled grilled chicken. Tossed with pomegranate vinaigrette and topped with bleu cheese crumbles and naturally raised bacon, this salad offers a sweet and savory explosion of flavor.
This salad had all the food groups! :) I loved the sweet apples paired with the salty bacon topped off with the flavorful vinaigrette. It was a great mix of ingredients and I would definitely get this salad again!
The next time I went to Noodles & Co., I tried the The Med Salad with Chicken. I also really enjoyed this salad!
Guests are invited to explore the richness and splendor of Greece with Noodles & Company’s The Med Salad with Chicken. Mixed greens and romaine are first layered with tomato, cucumber, red onion and Kalamata olives. The salad is then tossed with spicy yogurt dressing and topped with cavatappi pasta and feta cheese for a fresh, flavorful bite.
And if you like a little kick to your food, then you may LOVE the *NEW* Chicken Veracruz Salad.
A foray into Latin flavors, the Chicken Veracruz Salad starts with a bed of mixed greens and is layered with Roma tomato, red onion, chili-lime chicken, crumbled, naturally raised bacon and fresh, hand-cut corn. This salad is then tossed with Jalapeno Ranch dressing and topped with crispy jalapenos, avocado and cilantro with a wedge of lime, for a spicy, citrus kick.
So if you are looking to shut off the oven and take a break from cooking this summer without sacrificing your diet and health head to your local Noodles & Co. and taste flavors from around the world with their new salads! The flavors are great and they are so refreshing!
