Adding To Reser's Prepared Salads Creates Fresh Menu Items
Just in time for summer salad season, Reser’s offers foodservice operators and restaurateurs an easy way to stir salad sales.
“Adding just a few ingredients to our prepared salads helps operators and chefs cross utilize products as well as whip up new menu items based on proven classics,” says Jason Chin, senior marketing manager. According to Chin, operators who stir in a few fresh ingredients can create new menu dishes without bringing in additional inventory, saving on labor costs, and add freshness and back-of-the-house taste to refrigerated classics.
Four Foodservice “Stir-in” Ideas
- Pimento Cheese Panini- From pubs to upscale restaurants, pimento cheese is hot and showing up on menus across the country. Serve this on-trend item by coating a good quality bread using Reser’s Pimento Cheese Spread. Then layer bacon, chicken breast, cheese, and thyme with apple slices and arugula and grill on Panini press.
- Smokey Cheddar Macaroni Salad- Add julienne slices of smoked ham, Cheddar cheese, diced green bell pepper, and celery to Reser’s Elbow Macaroni Salad for a protein-rich salad.
- Potato Dill Salad Sandwich-Mix in chopped hard cooked eggs and chopped dill to Reser’s Diced Potato Salad with Egg. Using a split croissant, fill with salad and top with a crisp lettuce leaf.
- Southwest Chile Pasta Salad- Stir in sliced fajita chicken breast, Monterey Jack cheese, and chopped fresh cilantro to Reser’s Southwest Chili Pasta Salad to make a lunch or dinner entrée salad.
