Salads are commonly a go-to option on a menu for customers during the summer due to the high temperatures and need for something refreshing. Using seasonal produce can enhance your salads and give it the freshness that customers are looking for. Beyond the classic iceberg, butter lettuce and cucumbers can be a wonderful option to add into a salad. Additionally, produce that is in season is going to be less expensive than those out of season.
