Crushed Red, a franchise dishing up chopped-to-order salads and artisan-crafted whole-grain pizzas in an elevated fast-casual atmosphere, announced today the introduction of a new seasonal salad creation to its menu.
Available for a limited time only, the innovative new seafood salad, cleverly named Party Like a Lob-star, is chopped-to-order and features a mix of romaine lettuce and baby spinach, avocado, cilantro, red onion, roasted corn, Goat cheese, and bacon. The salad is then tossed in a lemon agave dressing and topped with candied poblano peppers and poached slipper lobster.
“With our new seafood salad, we really tried to let each unique ingredient shine through,” says Chris LaRocca, founder of Crushed Red. “The combination of this succulent crustacean and the freshness of the greens, cilantro, avocado and roasted corn, all come together to create a beautiful fusion of flavors.”
In addition to this limited-time salad offering, Crushed Red offers a variety of other artisan-crafted salads and pizzas as well as the option to customize salads and pizzas. The salads are all chopped-to-order and organically dressed in front of the customer. The pizzas are built on the foundation of a whole-grain crust that was developed by Mike Marino, the former national director of baking operations for Panera Bread. The dough is stretched by hand, topped with an organic tomato sauce, and then baked in a gas-fired oven and served up piping hot in just 90 seconds. Crushed Red also serves all-natural soups, savory appetizers, wine and beer.
