Make the Most of Your Salad Bar Program
Our “Make the Most of Your Salad” program was designed to enhance guests’ salad bar experience and provide education on how to create salads that reap the most benefits. Through the use of green, yellow and red colored-tongs, guests are able to make selections based on what is most beneficial and nutritious.
- Green: Use these ingredients often as they are typically nutrient dense fruits and vegetables
- Yellow: These ingredients pack on protein, healthy fats and other good stuff, so enjoy them…in moderation.
- Red: Add just a bit for flavor and color, as these are usually high in calories, sodium, and unhealthy fats.
