Noodles & Company recently introduced new summer salads. I was given the opportunity to join in a #noodlestasting with other local bloggers. All meal items were provided for the purpose of this post.
Let the record state that I am more than just a casual pasta fan. Noodles are my ultimate comfort food and I could eat them every single day. So you can understand that Noodles & Company, with dozens of different pasta choices, is a dream come true for me. Every dish is cooked to order and substitutions are welcomed, which makes it easy for me to enjoy my favorite dishes! Whether you like Asian, Italian or traditional comfort food dishes, you’ll find something delicious to fill you up.
I love that Noodles & Company serves up real flavors – quality ingredients free of artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners or preservatives. Their menu includes 14 fresh vegetables prepped throughout the day, cage-free eggs, organic milk & tofu, along with naturally raised pork and bacon.
Did you know? Noodles & Company also offers gluten-free or rice noodles, vegetarian options, dairy-free choices and more. Swap out one vegetable for another or hold the mushrooms, if you like. Design your dish the way you like it.
Just for fun, you can discover your new favorite drink. The Coke Freestyle machine invites you to choose from dozens of beverage possibilities, some I’ve never even imagined!
If you’re in the mood for something cool this summer, you’ll want to know about the two new salads now available at Noodles & Company: Napa Market Salad with Chicken and the Chicken Veracruz Salad! These protein-packed salads are made when you order – not a moment sooner – and thanks to fresh ingredients, they pack a lot of flavor into your bowl!
Napa Market Salad with Chicken – Mixed greens are topped with Gala apple slices, Roma tomatoes and red bell pepper layered with pulled grilled chicken, bleu cheese, naturally raised bacon crumbles in a pomegranate vinaigrette. This salad has a lighter, tangy feel to it, complimented by crunchy peppers and apples.
Chicken Veracruz Salad – Mixed greens topped with Roma tomato, red onion, chili-lime chicken, crumbled bacon, fresh-cut corn with a kick from Jalapeño Ranch dressing and crispy jalapeños. California avocados and cilantro balance out the bowl.
Hungry? Grab a regular size salad. It only costs about $1 more than the small and you can always take leftovers home with you (just ask for a container or order it to go).
