It’s National Salad Month!
Did you know May is National Salad Month? Celebrate this month by joining us at Tullulah’s! We have an outstanding selection of salads to choose from at our delicious restaurant and bar.
National Salad Month began in 1992 when it was created by the Association for Dressing and Sauces. This month out of the year is dedicated to encouraging people to eat more salads on a daily basis.
The first documented information about salads occurred in 4th century BC when Aristotle wrote about the health benefits of Swiss Chard. The first picture of the salad was depicted in 1504 with a painting by Leonardo da Vinci of a goddess holding a bouquet of lettuce. Iceberg lettuce was created in 1894 to help with the long distance transportation of the leafy green. Then, in 1924, Caesar Cardini, created the first Caesar salad. By 1939, the first salad bar at a restaurant was set up in Chicago.
In modern day, there are many ways to celebrate salad. One way is to order from our menu at Tullulah’s. Consider our spring salad made with gem lettuce, radicchio, bibb lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and house-made buttermilk ranch. We also serve a farro salad made with farro, fennel, dried cherries, cinnamon spiced almonds, and a green tea vinaigrette. Turn one of our popular salads into a wrap when you order the chicken apple wrap. This menu item is crafted from apples, goat cheese, pickled red onion, and a honey-thyme vinaigrette, and can be served as a wrap or as a salad.
