Just Salad announced its summer 2023 menu will be launching this week, featuring four flavorful, seasonally inspired salad recipes as well as a soup special for customers nationwide. The chain is kicking off the summer season with new mouth-watering greens, packed with fresh veggies and bold ingredients made to beat the summer heat.

Beginning Thursday, June 15, guests can officially indulge in several brand-new menu items alongside returning fan-favorites, including the Backyard BBQ and Honey Crispy Chicken. To celebrate the menu release, Just Salad will be offering mobile app customers the opportunity to purchase exclusive previews of select menu items in advance of launch. 

Each salad incorporates fresh seasonal toppings, such as mint leaves, lentils and fresh dill, combined with flavor-packed summer staples like homemade BBQ Ranch Dressing for an unforgettable blend of taste and tang with every bite. Additionally, Just Salad’s seasonal soup special – the Chicken Poblano Soup – is inspired by the chain’s Crispy Chicken Poblano salad, offering a fun and unique twist on the best-selling menu item.

As part of the company’s continued commitment to sourcing high-quality, sustainably grown ingredients, Just Salad has partnered with indoor farming brand, Gotham Greens to procure Butterhead Lettuce for its seasonal menu. Gotham Greens Butterhead Lettuce is soft and sweet, with a buttery texture, and grown using up to 95% less water and 97% less land than conventional farming. Most markets will feature the local, greenhouse-grown lettuce as a base green in Just Salad’s seasonal salad, The Gotham.
