After months of soups and sandwiches, fast food needs some colorful and invigorating items. Next week, Panera will introduce two salads—one new and one returning—for salad lovers.
Panera's Southwest Caesar Salad with Chicken launches nationally on April 5.
This fresh version on Panera's best-selling Caesar salad has a variety of high-quality ingredients and a distinct taste combination.
The new salad includes fresh romaine, Parmesan cheese, antibiotic-free grilled chicken breast, Caesar dressing, sliced avocado, crumbled blue corn tortilla strips, chipotle aioli, and cilantro.
MyPanera rewards members can preview the new salad before its launch next week. Digital orders exclusively for the new Southwest Caesar Salad with Chicken starting March 27.
MyPanera clients may try it before it's generally available, and Unlimited Sip Club members will get $2 off the new menu item during this short promotion.
Strawberry Poppyseed Salad stays delightful and light for loyal clients. This salad, which returns to the spring/summer menu, has fresh romaine lettuce, mandarin
oranges, strawberries, pineapple, and blueberries blended in Panera's poppyseed dressing and topped with toasted pecans and antibiotic-free grilled chicken breast.
"We're always thrilled to have Strawberry Poppyseed Salad back on the menu for the season," said Panera's head chef and chief culinary innovation officer.
Panera made another major menu change in 2023. Toasted Baguettes were a hit when the bakery-cafe company launched them.
