GREEN LEAF’S BEYOND GREAT SALADS TREATS CUSTOMERS TO THE AUTHENTIC TASTE OF MEXICAN STREET FOOD WITH LONG-AWAITED RETURN OF TAJÍN-SPICED OFFERINGS

MORRISTOWN, NJ (May 29, 2018): Green Leaf’s Beyond Great Salads, the rapidly growing quick-service restaurant brand known for better-for-you options including made-to-order salads, delicious wraps and grilled panini, invites its guests to enjoy all of the traditional flavors of Mexican street food this summer with the exciting return of two of its most sought after menu items. Just in time for warmer weather, sunny skies and fresh, bold flavors, Green Leaf’s Beyond Great Salads is proud to announce the return of its fan-favorite Baja Street Taco – loaded with all-natural smoked chicken, cabbage, mango, pico de gallo and TAJÍN® chili lime sauce.

Back by popular demand, the Baja Street Taco is returning to spice up guests’ lives with TAJÍN®, a traditional Mexican seasoning made with mild chili peppers, lime and sea salt, now available at all participating locations nationwide for a limited time only. Each order comes with three tacos and plenty of flavor, retailing for just $7.59 – $8.79 (price varies by location). In addition to the Baja Street Taco, Green Leaf’s has also announced the resurgence of its Chili Lime Chicken Salad – made with all-natural smoked chicken, cucumber, cabbage, avocado, mango, pico de gallo, TAJÍN® chili lime seasoning and a zesty chili lime vinaigrette.

“We are excited to be able to bring the delicious flavor profiles of the traditional Mexican food truck back again to our Green Leaf’s locations nationwide,” said Andrea Carella, Director of Brand Marketing, Green Leaf’s Beyond Great Salads. “By combining our fresh, high-quality ingredients with TAJÍN’s amazing seasonings, we are confident that Green Leaf’s tacos will transport our guests from their local food court to south of the border.”

Founded in 1976, Green Leaf’s Beyond Great Salads offers its guests better-for-you options before it became trendy. Today, Green Leaf’s continues to offer fresh, high-quality menu items including soups, salads and Panini’s made with locally sourced produce and 100% all-natural chicken. With over 40 locations across the United States, Green Leaf’s specialty is made-to-order Pick & Mix salads, where guests can customize their order by choosing from several fresh lettuce options, dressings and toppings.
