McDonald's recently announced that it will now be adding red leaf lettuce and carrots to all of its salad blends. With a growing number of consumers demanding healthier options from fast food chains, the move demonstrates a shift towards creating salads that are both flavorful and nutritious.
As per the chain's announcement, all McDonald's salads will now include red leaf lettuce and carrots. These nutritious ingredients will be combined with a blend of baby spinach, chopped romaine and baby kale. The colorful new salad blends not only depart from the unpopular iceberg lettuce the chain used to offer, but the new ingredients also demonstrate a move towards more nutrition-focused salads. Additionally, the move is indicative of the larger industry shift towards spinach, arugula and a kale.
