Noodles & Company Gives You Two New Ways to 'Veg Out' This Summer

Backyard-inspired salads hit restaurants nationwide for a limited time

BROOMFIELD, Colo. (June 1, 2011) /PRNewswire/ — Wish you could mix up all the delicious tastes of summer in a single serving? Well, thanks to Noodles & Company, you can now get the unforgettable tastes of vegetable gardens, juicy strawberries and backyard barbecues in two wholesomely tasty salads. For a limited time, your neighborhood Noodles is offering a summer twist to its salad line-up that features fresh ingredients and big flavor.

“Along with our sandwiches and soups, our new summertime salads represent the ‘& Company’ side of the Noodles & Company menu.They feature ingredients that appeal to both men and women, big eaters and little nibblers,” says Tessa Stamper, Noodles & Company’s chef and registered dietitian.“Our guests have also been asking for new salads to complement the three we already offer on the menu. We listened — and we’re excited for them to taste all the flavor we packed in.”

Noodles & Company guests have two affordable new ways to get their ‘veg’ on this summer:

Backyard Barbecue Chicken Salad with fresh-cut corn is a hearty, nutritious salad featuring marinated pulled chicken breast with fresh-cut summer corn, ripe Roma tomatoes and chopped red cabbage served over mixed greens and tossed with a smoky coleslaw dressing. This “perfect picnic plate” is a leafier version of your own backyard barbeque.

Very Berry Spinach Salad with blue cheese and balsamic fig drizzle is a wholesome meal that includes fresh strawberries, pecans, crispy bacon and house-made croutons atop tender spinach leaves finished off with blue cheese crumbles and a balsamic fig glaze. It’s “berry” good, if we say so ourselves (and yes, we said “berry”).

Guests can customize the salads, as with any Noodles dish, to meet their dietary or taste preferences. This could include adding one of Noodles’ 14 fresh veggies or protein-rich foods, including meats, shrimp or organic tofu, or removing or swapping an ingredient.

These limited-time summer salads are available at all Noodles & Company restaurants* through the end of August. To find a restaurant near you, please visit www.noodles.com. Noodles & Company is open seven days a week and offers convenient carry-out, phone-in and fax-in orders.

*Tennessee restaurants will introduce Summertime Salads on June 29.
