Saladworks has announced the winners of its "Create-Your-Own Powerhouse Salad" Contest, which asked customers to submit their own Powerhouse Salad creation based on ingredients from the new True Nutrition menu, and encouraged fans to include fresh ideas for new salad ingredients.
Saladworks received thousands of entries to the contest hosted on its Web site, and promoted through its Facebook and Twitter pages. Of all the entries, the creations by Lorrie Nixon of Azusa, Calif.; Dana Schafer of Langhorne, Penn.; and Joan Bayley of Dearborn, Mich.; were selected as winners.
The three winning fans will have their Powerhouse Salad named after them and sold in more than 100 Saladworks locations across the county. The salads will be featured, along with its creator’s pictures, as Saladworks’ seasonal salads for 2010. Winners also received a $500 gift card. The first winning salad will be released in stores this April.
- Lorrie’s Salad features a spring mix salad base, almonds, avocado, feta cheese, and turkey topped with pita chips.
- Dana’s Salad starts off with a mixture of iceberg and romaine lettuce, then adds artichokes, mozzarella cheese, olives and tomatoes tossed with Radiatorre pasta and shrimp.
- Joan’s Salad rounds out the winning salads with spring mix, artichokes, avocados, mushrooms and fresh salmon topped with rice crisps.
