Sweet Green is a welcome change in a city crowded with unimaginative, tasteless salad bars that serve low-quality ingredients, like iceberg lettuce and gluey lo mein, both serious detours to healthy eating. You know exactly what I'm talking about because those "salad /hot food bar" places are ubiquitous in DC.
Sweet Green offers a number of signature salads that will make your stomach do the Safety Dance. My favorite combination, however, is my own creation: arugula and romaine with edamame, carrots, gorgonzola, craisins, and walnuts with white balsamic orange zest dressing. This salad not only makes you want to eat a salad; it makes you crave salad.
Each week Sweet Green offers ingredients from Dupont Farmer's Market. Recently, Sweet Green featured market peaches as a yogurt topping. I'm lovin' it.
And that's not all. From their biodegradable forks, to their reusable wooden bowls for those who eat in, Sweet Green is earth friendly. Those tables pictured above? They are made from old bowling alleys. Heck you can even plant the menu and flowers WILL GROW. Now that's what I'm talking about. Sweet Green: I like your style.
