Our brand new seasonal menu items pay homage to classic fall flavors but with a couple trendy ingredients – parsnips and dates. The Picasso is a smoky, satisfying grain bowl brimming with roasted veggies, smoked cheddar and bacon, dressed with our Smokey Cider Vinaigrette (best known for its appearance on the Bonnie Parker). The Monet is a light, earthy salad featuring root vegetables, spicy pecans and parmesan. It’s topped with the daring Date Tahini Dressing…an earthy, sweet dressing that’s designed to highlight the roasted parsnips, sweet potatoes and red onions. 

MAD Greens Monet Salad

The Monet: Spinach & Kale, House Grilled Chicken, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Red Onions & Parsnips, Parmesan, MAD Spice Pecans with Date Tahini Dressing


Dates are sweet. Dates make a seemingly mundane Monday exciting. Dates take a little courage to explore. Dates offer something new and something familiar. No, we’re not talking about romantic nights out…we mean those sweet chewy little fruits! Our Date Tahini dressing celebrates Medjool dates by pairing them with complementary tahini and tart balsamic vinegar. The result is a craveable, sweet-and-savory dressing that will have you licking the bowl after your Monet salad.


To honor its namesake, this salad was inspired by the changing seasons and harmonious flavors. The sweet potatoes, red onions and parsnips have all been lightly salted and roasted. The nutty Parmesan balances the heat from the MAD Spice pecans. This salad clearly has a date with your lunchtime destiny. 

The Picasso: Wild Rice Blend, Spinach, House Grilled Chicken, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Red Onions & Parsnips, Bacon, Smoked Cheddar Cheese, Apples with Smokey Cider Vinaigrette


On the other, slightly “mad” side, we have the Picasso – a rich, hearty grain bowl loaded with roasted parsnips, red onions and sweet potatoes plus bacon and smoked cheddar cheese. It almost seems too decadent for lunch, almost. But the apples lend a refreshing lightness and the Smokey Cider Vinaigrette brings a delightful combo of smoky, sweet and tangy. We couldn’t stop eating this comforting, autumnal grain bowl while creating it, and we hope you feel the same!
