Chef's Inspiration: The Eva Peron
Texas fans get ready for a treat with our new Texas-inspired Eva Peron seasonal salad! What makes this dish so amazing? The secret's in the smoke as Chef Dan Long, MAD Greens Co-Founder and Chief Culinary Innovator reveals:
The Eva Peron features baby greens, plancha style veggies (carrots, beets and fennel from Johnson's Backyard Garden!), cotija cheese, grilled citrus chicken topped with a homemade Chimichurri Vinaigrette.
Chef Dan was inspired to create the Eva after sitting down to some amazing Texas BBQ on a recent trip to Austin, Texas. The flavor of Texas BBQ is heavily influenced by open fire and controlling smoke and flames to create a specific taste. The same holds true with another one of Chef Dan's favorite culinary genres - Argentinian "plancha style" cooking. What would happen if the two were fused together? They'd make a deliciously tasty food baby named Eva and the rest is history.
The Eva Peron is only available at our Texas MAD Greens for a limited time, so get it while you can!
