The Mighty Aphrodite Returns
As the days get longer and hotter, most people look forward to pool time, camping or flip flops. But here at MAD Greens, we've been counting down the days till strawberry season...and it's finally here!! Starting today, the beloved Mighty Aphrodite seasonal salad is back for its ninth year on our summer menu. The Aphrodite is a delicious combo of juicy strawberries, crisp cucumbers, crunchy almonds and creamy mozzarella set over a delightful bed of mixed greens and paired with homemade Shallot Tarragon Vinaigrette. The richness of the cheese, the sweetness of the strawberries and the crunchy complement of the almonds make for a refreshing warmer weather treat.
When creating this salad, we felt strawberries would be a great focal point because they're refreshing and pair well with many flavors, especially in salads. Sadly, we don't carry strawberries year-round because they often taste bland off-season. We hate taking the strawberries away in the winter but their flavor is just so much better in the summer...plus absence makes the heart (and stomach) grow fonder.
With all that said, we hope you're hungry and that you drop everything you're doing and come into MAD Greens right now to enjoy the seasonal Mighty Aphrodite! Trust us, your taste buds will thank you.
