Salata Adds Watermelon To July's Toppings LineupSalata is adding a refreshing topping to its July menu that’s perfect for any Fourth of July celebration.

The restaurant known for its simple, fresh and honest ingredients will introduce the refreshing fruit to its toppings lineup on July 1.

Watermelon contains multiple health benefits. It is packed with antioxidants, helps lower blood pressure, reduces the risk of kidney disorders and even helps protect eyes against macular degeneration. Watermelon also boosts hydration since about 92 percent of the fruit is water. Along with its nutritional value, watermelon adds a sweet, juicy flavor to any salad or wrap, which makes it perfect for escaping the summer heat.

At Salata, guests can customize their own salad to fit the mood they are in. Watermelon fans are encouraged to come by soon. This special topping will only be available through July 31.

Some popular combinations featuring July’s Topping of the Month include –

  • Watermelon wrap – spinach, watermelon, red onion, cucumber, avocado, feta cheese, grilled chicken, olive oil, salt and pepper, cool cucumber tortilla
  • Watermelon salad – Spring mix, watermelon, cucumber, mandarin oranges, red onions, cilantro, jicama, grilled chicken, feta cheese, balsamic vinaigrette

“We’re always looking for tasty, healthy options that add to our wide variety of toppings, and watermelon is a perfect fit,” said Courtney Schutze, Brand Manager at Salata. “Watermelon adds a fresh and juicy bite to any salad or wrap while providing a mouthful of health benefits.”

And if watermelon isn’t your favorite, don’t fret. More than 50 fresh toppings and 10 house-made dressings are always available to create your perfect salad or salad wrap every day.
