California Tortilla is bringing the flavors of the Mediterranean stateside with the Mediterranean Bowl, a new menu option that’s available starting today for a limited time only.

The Mediterranean Bowl features customer’s choice of grilled mesquite chicken or farm-fresh veggies, on a bed of romaine lettuce, pearl couscous, Israeli salad (tomato and cucumber), and hummus. It’s topped with tzatziki, fresh sliced avocado, Feta cheese, and California Tortilla’s signature California Screamin’ sauce, then finished with a tortilla crisp.

Putting a fresh spin on traditional Mediterranean flavors, the fast-casual restaurant adds a Mexican twist: The Israeli salad is made with lime juice and cilantro; meanwhile, California Screamin’ is a spicy, smoky chipotle sauce available only at California Tortilla locations. 

The cost will be $8.39 or $8.59 (depending on store location).

“California Tortilla is always looking for ways to incorporate fresh, nutrient-packed ingredients into its reimagined Mexican menu,” says Keith Goldman, executive chef at California Tortilla. “Following the success of the Super Food Burrito, introduced in January, the Mediterranean Bowl seemed like the perfect addition to our Spring menu.”

The Mediterranean Bowl will be available through the middle of August.
