SaladStop! makes healthy eating fun
Starring their seasonal menu items: the Yasou! salad and the Saikō warm protein bowl
Say hello to Yasou! (pronounced “yah-soo”), a celebration of Greek goodness made with a vibrant medley of romaine, rocket, sun-dried tomatoes, candied walnuts, juicy grapes, shaved parmesan and feta cheese. Enhanced by a tangy Greek Vinaigrette, Yasou! is not only tasty but packed with calcium, potassium, phosphorus and iron.
Meanwhile, SaladStop!'s Saikō takes diners on a culinary trip to Japan. The star? Baked salmon teriyaki on a bed of quinoa, romaine, and red and white cabbage. This dish is also served with carrots, pickled daikon, mandarin oranges and furikake, and topped with Teriyaki Dressing for that umami kick. Low in calories but high in protein, Saikō is both healthy and indulgent in one bite.
At SaladStop!, the possibilities are endless. Enjoy Yasou! as a refreshing salad/wrap (P375) or order it as a salad tray (P1,200) or wrap tray (P2,300) for your next big get-together. Looking for something warm to enjoy solo? Indulge in the Saikō warm protein bowl (P395) to sate that craving. Both Yasou! and Saikō are available for ordering on Daily Bowls in your 3-day (MWF) or 5-day (M-F) subscription.
Savor these SaladStop! creations until August 29, 2023. Available in all SaladStop! stores.
