Salad Masters to Tackle Tossed's Annual Salad Contest

Tossed, home of garden fresh salads, crepe wraps, grilled Panini, sandwiches, and hot soups, announced its fifth annual National Salad Contest. Salad masters—and novices, too—can submit their best original salad recipe, and the winner will earn a place on Tossed’s menu during the month of July and take home a $500 gift card to Tossed. The winning recipe may even become a Tossed regular. Last year’s champion, the Chicken Caprese Salad created by Sarah Wilson of Boston, is on the menu nationally. 

Since 2008, the Tossed National Salad Contest has promoted the creativity of Tossed guests everywhere. The contest is held each May, in conjunction with National Salad Month, and gives patrons the opportunity to showcase their ideas for exceptional salads to a nationwide audience. Entries will be judged by a panel of Tossed executives who will evaluate each entry based on taste, creativity, and visual appeal. This year’s contest ends at Midnight, May 31. To enter, customers can go to www.tossed.com or follow the links from Facebook and Twitter. Suggested salads must include a recipe name.

“Our healthy and wholesome ingredients can be tossed into endless, delicious salad combinations. Our guests are empowered to create and enjoy their own style of smart, fresh, and delicious food. It’s that philosophy—our own Eat Smart Think Fresh philosophy—that drives the spirit of Tossed’s annual salad contest,” says Jason Chodash, president of Tossed Franchise Corporation. “We look forward to seeing the many fabulous entries this year and adding yet another winner to our menu.”
