posted by: Amber Johnson
Who is ready for some summer salads?
Panera Bread has been busy creating new salads and updating your favorites. The best news of all? They are all deliciously clean without artificial preservatives, flavors sweeteners or colors from artificial sources. Currently, 85-90 percent of Panera’s ingredients are natural and their chicken, turkey, sausage and ham are raised without the use of antibiotics.
There are 27 bakery-cafes in the Denver/Boulder area and here are the delicious salads you’ll find this summer:
(New) Chinese Citrus Cashew with Chicken. Because I’m a huge fan of the Asian Sesame Chicken Salad, I’d highly recommend this new salad made with romaine, napa cabbage blend, cucumber, fresh pineapple and cilantro. Oh, and while we’re at it, throw in some mandarin oranges, roasted cashews, hoisin sauce and soy-miso lime dressing for the win!
(New) Green Goddess Cobb with Chicken. This glorious Cobb has antibiotic-free chicken, arugula, romaine, kale and radicchio blend, vine-ripened tomatoes, pickled red onions, avocado, bacon, cage-free hard-boiled egg, house-made green goddess dressing.
(In season) Strawberry Poppyseed with Chicken. Chicken raised without antibiotics, romaine, fresh strawberries, blueberries and pineapple, mandarin oranges, toasted pecan pieces and (drum roll) fat-free poppyseed dressing.
Fuji Apple with Chicken. Chicken, argula, romaine, kale, radiccio blend, vine-ripened tomatoes, red onions, toasted pecans, Gorgonzola, apple chips, sweet white balsamic vinaigrette.
Romaine and Kale Caesar with Chicken. Chicken raised without antibiotics, kale, romaine, handmade parmesan crisps, Caesar dressing.
