There's a New Salad at Sweetgreen (We Dreamt It Up!)

June 23, 2016

There’s a new salad in town—it’s lean, green, mean, and mighty. We created our own salad with sweetgreen's summer ingredients: Meet the Mighty Salad!

You can recreate our salad exclusively here until the end of July (7/25). We used roasted corn and peppers, avocado, arugula, feta, wild rice, chickpeas, sprouts, mint, and a cilantro lime jalapeño dressing. We hope you like it!

It speaks to everything we love about salad: many layers of green, many textures, seasonal things that may disappear soon, creamy things that are hopefully cheese or avocado, and enough of all these elements to keep you interested but also awake during your next meeting, and the next. It's the kind of salad we want to eat right now, and all summer.

If you’re not near a sweetgreen, or want to keep eating it after it leaves sweetgreen, make it at home—the recipe’s right below. Either way, the ways to riff are many: add toasted quinoa, pepitas, pea shoots, peaches, grilled shrimp, steak, more avocado.

I dislike taking the time to calculate grams to ounces but I will give it a go for later this week.

I get that, I don't do metrics either. At all.

Sounds great, but I am not a fan of recipes in grams.
