Yeah, me too.
That's how I felt today when I finally went to lunch. And since I knew I was going to stuff myself, I decided to try a new salad joint just south of here called The Mixx. OH. MY. WORD. It was out of this world!
I had a small Tuna Nicoise salad. It came with green beans (or haricot vert, for those of us with our noses in the air), a hard-boiled egg, roasted potatoes, kalamata olives, tomatoes, fresh assorted greens and romaine. It was dressed with a tarragon shallot vinaigrette, and it was delicious. It included a whole-grain roll as well.
Even though it was advertised as a "mini" salad, I still couldn't finish it all. And the roll? Not a chance. I brought it back to work to snack on later. Only "later" never came, because I am still stuffed to the gills.
The menu includes several of these specialty salads, but it also has a "Mixx Your Own" selection that lets you choose the greens, dressing, and Mixx-Ins. Sandwiches and wraps are also a part of the menu, as are soups, sides, drinks, and a pasta saute that sounds wonderful. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are noted, and make up about 40% of the offerings.
In short, I'll go there again for sure. If you're in the Kansas City area, give it a try. You won't be sorry!
