AUSTIN, Texas – Whole Foods Market announced today that beginning Dec. 27, salad bars nationwide will incorporate new composed and “build your own” salad recipes with a focus on root-to-stem food preparation, seasonal produce and superfood ingredients.

“We’re refreshing our salad bars for the New Year to support shoppers who are looking for convenient, healthy dishes that don’t sacrifice quality or taste,” said Tien Ho, Culinary & Hospitality Executive Coordinator for Whole Foods Market. “Our stores are excited to celebrate peak season produce and serve up plant based, nutrient dense recipes that we know our customers crave this time of year.”

In November, buyers and culinary experts from Whole Foods Market revealed their top food trend predictions for 2018, including root-to-stem cooking, which makes use of the entire fruit or vegetable. Popular with those looking to experiment with new flavors or reduce food waste, this trend incorporates lesser used parts of produce such as stems, rinds, seeds and leaves.
