The Salad Shop adds grain bowls to the menu
Maybe it’s about the destination after all. The Salad Shop’s Perkins Road location recently added a series of “destination bowls” to the menu, featuring grains like couscous, quinoa and brown rice. The Sonoma, Santorini and Shanghai bowls highlight flavors from those locations with ingredients like roasted chickpeas, pickled red onions, toasted almonds and more mixed in with the grains and greens.
Each bowl comes with a unique dressing, such as lemon vinaigrette for the Sonoma, tahini vinaigrette for the Santorini, and Asian sesame and Sriracha for the Shanghai.
“Think of each bowl as a deconstructed salad,” owner Bradley Sanchez said in a release. “It expands our menu options while still keeping in the lane of what we do best.”
The Salad Shop’s Perkins Road location is at 3617 Perkins Road, Suite 1F, in the Acadian/Perkins Plaza.
