Summertime Fruits Salad Combinations at Salata (available now through June 15).

Salata has added some new, limited-time ingredient additions including watermelon, mango and blueberry to add delicious flavors and healthful vitamins and minerals to your salads.  Watermelon has lycopene, mangoes and blueberries have vitamin C and antioxidants.  What a great way to taste ‘summer’ while you get healthier for it too!
They have some great suggestions on how to combine their different lettuces, new toppings and proteins to make a filling and delicious meal.
Berry-Balsamic Salad – combine fresh spinach with blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, almonds, feta and grilled chicken, and top with Salata’s popular balsamic vinaigrette.
Spicy and Sweet – start with Salata’s salad mix and top it with mango, pineapple, red onion, green pepper, jalapeño, pumpkin seeds and grilled chicken and then finish off with chipotle ranch dressing.
Mediterranean Flavor – begin with a bed of kale and then add watermelon, cucumber, radish, feta, chickpeas and falafel and then drizzle with lemon vinaigrette dressing.
I couldn’t wait to try some of the new summertime fruits on my salad when I visited our local Salata in Flower Mound, TX the other day for dinner.

I can’t wait to return to Salata again and try some different combinations of lettuce, toppings and protein and maybe next time I’ll leave some room to try one of those cookies or brownies!Salata RestaurantYou can learn more about Salata on their website and find out about their latest promotions on their Facebook page.
