We’re stoked to finally share a behind the scenes look at our new favorite salad for the Summer. We call it the Italian Chop Chop, an Italian inspired salad so nice we named it twice. Watch the video below and take a deeper look with Senior Vice President of Culinary and Menu Innovation Chef Matt Harding:
The star of the Italian Chop Chop Salad is our muffaletta, a finely diced relish made from green & black olives, pickled celery, cauliflower, carrots, sweet peppers, red onions, parsley, pepperoncini, garlic, and a blend of spices that bring a subtle spicy kick to the party. We build the salad with crisp romaine & cabbage and add our sweet & spicy peppers, feta, toasted parmesan crisps, sliced pepperoni and a healthy scoop of muffaletta. Finally, we dress it up with our new in-house-made Italian vinaigrette, a bright and tangy dressing blended with fresh pepperoncini peppers, garlic, oregano, thyme, olive oil, & white balsamic vinegar. Fast and fresh; this might be the best salad you have all summer. The Italian Chop Chop salad is available today at a local Piada restaurant near you. But stop in quick: it’s only around for a limited time!
