To kickstart the summer and promote healthy eating, Naked Greens in Wilton has announced a promotion asking YOU to help create a fun and inspiring new salads. The “Feaured-Salad-Of-The-Month Promo” starts in July, and runs every month thereafter; each month the restaurant will add a new “salad-of-the-month” created by loyal customers.
Naked Greens’ owner Victor Melendez has asked several other Wilton business owners to help, including GOOD Morning Editor, Heather Borden Herve. Also on the panel of judges are Loryn Galardi of Comprehensive Nutrition; Andrea Topalian of Moments by Andrea Photography; and Alison Jacobson, Life Coach and Wilton’s Safety Mom.) Melendez will also be recruiting five loyal customers to help evaluate all the submissions and select the winning creations.
Anyone interested in entering a salad idea can:
1. Create Your Salad
– Try to use the ingredients currently have on the Naked Greens menu but it’s not limited to those; new ideas are welcome
– Create your own dressing or use one on the menu
2. Send Naked Greens an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the idea and your contact information.
(Please check the Naked Greens website for contest rules, regulations and limitations.)
Salad creations will be judged on the criteria of flavor intensity, uniqueness, sell-ability and nutritional value. Judges will evaluate the submissions and will pre-select the best 10 ideas. Those 10 options will move on to the “live tasting test event,” an event in June that will be open to the public at Naked Greens Wilton, where the 10 salad inventors will have the chance to personally build their salad entries for the judges to taste and select the winners.
People interested in taking part as a judge can email Melendez.
The winners will be announced in the Naked Greens newsletter and Facebook page and via GOOD Morning Wilton.
