‘Topping of the Month’ features an array of health benefits
The restaurant known for its simple, fresh and honest ingredients – Salata – is adding pea sprouts to its menu, beginning today.
If you’ve never heard of pea sprouts then they may just be your new obsession. Pea sprouts are the young leaves of the pea plant, harvested as microgreens. They are rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber, folate and anti-inflammatory properties.
At Salata, guests can customize their salads to fit their mood. Pea sprout fans are encouraged to stop by soon as this special topping will only be available through March 31.
Some popular combinations featuring March’s Topping of the Month include –
- Salad 1 – romaine, pea sprouts, carrots, snow peas, almonds, ginger lime dressing, sesame sticks, shrimp
- Salad 2 – spinach and kale, pea sprouts, radishes, cucumber, tomato, chick peas, feta cheese, almonds, fresh herb vinaigrette, quinoa
“We’re always looking for innovative fresh and healthy options to add to our wide array of toppings, and pea sprouts certainly fit the bill,” said Berge Simonian, founder and CEO of Salata. “Pea sprouts are growing in popularity because they are rich in nutrients and offer a delicious pea flavor – perfect for any salad or wrap.”
And if pea sprouts aren’t your thing, don’t fret. With more than 50 fresh toppings and 10 house-made dressings, you can always find the perfect combination to create your perfect salad or salad wrap every day.
