MAD Greens Partners with Olomomo Nut Co.
April 22, 2013
MAD Greens, a local leader in fresh, healthy lunch and dinner options, has underscored its commitment to local sourcing by partnering with Boulder-based Olomomo Nut Company to create a unique, delicious salad for its menu.
The Olomomo Salad – inspired by the nut company’s all natural, healthy, artisan nuts – combines MAD Greens’ ingredients, including baby greens, apples, feta cheese and dried cranberries, with Olomomo Cherry Vanilla Dream™ almonds. The result is a fresh, crunchy, craveable creation with a slightly sweet, creamy and tangy flavor.
“We were really excited when MAD Greens said they wanted to make a salad using our Cherry Vanilla Dream almonds,” said Olomomo CEO Mark Owens. “Based on their culinary expertise and unique salads, we knew that the result would be amazing, and we weren’t disappointed.”
The Olomomo Salad first debuted on MAD Greens’ menu in late 2012 as a limited-time offer. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response it is now a permanent fixture on the menu.
Said one Facebook fan: “I LOVE this salad! I have eaten it at least 6 times in the last 2 1/2 weeks. Nothing I’d change about it, it’s perfect, including a light amount of the recommended Sherry Molasses Vinaigrette.”
In addition to its partnership with Olomomo, last month MAD Greens announced a deal that names Longmont, Colo.-based Haystack Mountain Goat Cheese the company’s exclusive supplier of goat cheese, affirming its support of Colorado-based companies and the use of fresh, quality ingredients.
“MAD Greens is always looking for new flavors and ingredients to come up with tasty combinations. We have a history of working with other innovative companies to create new, interesting entrees for our menu,” said MAD Greens co-founder and CEO Marley Hodgson. “A key part of our mission in building the company has been to offer as much support as possible to local companies, and we actively seek out new ways to establish and maintain these relationships.”
