This month’s seasonal salad consists of baby spinach with apples, roasted tofu, spicy quinoa, sugar snap peas, fresh cilantro and sweetgreen’s lime cilantro jalapeno vinaigrette.
This month, we are excited to dedicate our seasonal salad to all vegans out there! Inspired by some of our vegan associates on the sweetgreen team, like Brittany from SG Bethesda, we tried to pack lots of protein and flavor into this salad. The spicy quinoa is an important component with its high protein content and spicy kick that adds a nice amount of heat to the salad. The fresh cilantro also plays a great part by adding that fresh herb flavor throughout.
