Salad Bar v2.0 (Read: Awesome Dressing Upgrades!)

Salad Bar v2.0 (Read: Awesome Dressing Upgrades!)

Walden Farms, Delightful Palate, Johnny Jambalaya - Oh My! In a perfect example of one of our awesome customers getting us to get off of our duffs here at Calandro’s to make our Salad Bar at Perkins *even better*, one of our Facebook followers, Courtney, inspired us.  She was looking for fat free dressing options and we couldn’t really produce because we only had one fat free choice (see below for the whole exchange).  This may have started as an innocent, simple question from Courtney, but it was a big deal to us that warranted a big upgrade.  So we went to our Calandro’s Culinary Think Tank to figure out a way to add the much needed fat free options we were missing.  And while we were there, we ultimately decided that we would make room for… …a whopping 8 more unique, gourmet dressing choices. That takes us from 12 to 20.  A 66% increase (!).  Like we always say (or maybe not): “Can’t let a good grocery salad bar crisis go to waste.”  Oh, and please don’t forget - we also put these out to encourage tasting.  So if you’re not necessarily doing a salad, but you wanna ‘try before you buy’, just stop by the salad bar, put a little in a plastic dressing container and taste away!  (Also - if you’re already shopping around, look for the ‘Try Me at the Salad Bar’ tags on in the dressings section on Aisle 1, the marinades on Aisle 2, and the olive oils on Aisle 4 to know what we’re featuring at any point in time.) Oh, and please...
Calandro’s New Salad Bar Oil / Vinegar Dressings & Samples

Calandro’s New Salad Bar Oil / Vinegar Dressings & Samples

Try a new oil or vinegar on our Salad Bar today - it just might blow your mind! Many of you have discovered the wonderful, fresh, and healthy salad bar we introduced at our Perkins Rd. store earlier this year. And if you haven’t - you’ve got to try it - its the quickest super-healthy meal you can pick up in South Baton Rouge (in our humble opinion). But even with fresh veggies, fruits, Calandro’s Homemade Chicken Salad, meats, salad dressings galore, and all of the other goodies that are available, something was still missing. So after racking our brains and wandering our aisles, we found the missing piece(s):                 If the pictures don’t do it justice, these are our world-class oil and vinegar collections. How could we have such a wonderful set of oil/vinegar combinations and not let a few of them compliment our new salad bar?  So we set out to remedy this by offering some of our very best to grace each and every salad that you all artfully create:                 So - great right?  Wonderful combinations of top-notch, exclusive oils and vinegars to lovingly compliment your hand-built salad.  What else could you ask for? Well - we didn’t stop there. Even if you’re not interested in buying a salad, but you want to try some of our more eclectic and/or expensive oils and vinegars before you spend a chunk of change on them, feel free to use our salad dressing cups to grab and/or taste a sample from the salad bar...
