Pret A Manger launches new spring menu including salads, rolls & smoothies

If your lunch needs livening up, Pret A Manger might have the answer as it launches its new spring menu.

Freshly made in their kitchens every day, there are 15 new items to try including salads, smoothies and what Pret are calling an “elevated sandwich category” in the form of rye rolls.

Upgrading lunchtime, the rolls are inspired by classic flavours from around the world while the three original salads use fresh and top-quality ingredients.

The freshly made Miso Chicken and Greens Salad is made using British chicken breast coated in a rich miso and tamari mayo on a bed of salad leaves and is topped with sesame seeds, fresh mint, Pret’s famous crispy onions, usually only seen at Christmas, and a pot of zingy green dressing made with lime and coriander.

If you are looking for a vegan option, look no further than the Tamari and Ginger Aubergine Salad, also topped with crispy onions and sesame seeds, and finished off with the all-important tamari and ginger dressing and half a lime.

Joining the salad range is the new Pesto Pasta Salad featuring tubetti rigati pasta and cannellini beans with fresh mozzarella, juicy roasted tomato and chargrilled peppers. Topped with a sprinkle of cheesy roasted breadcrumbs, freshly baked in Pret kitchens every day to ensure a good crunch, this salad includes a side of French dressing and a wedge of lemon.

For vegans, veggies and flexies, Pret will also be offering a set of new salads from Veggie Pret shops.

These include the Sticky Mushroom Salad Bowl featuring sticky roasted hoisin mushrooms on a bed of salad leaves all finished with a sprinkle of fresh mint and zingy green dressing.

“We hope that the new menu helps to highlight what makes Pret, Pret. And that is firstly, our dedication to always creating new products using the most delicious seasonal ingredients, taking inspiration from around the world and adding a Pret twist.”
