Every Friday I will feature a favorite place or item of mine and then have a poll to get your feedback.

On June 10th, I stopped by my preferred lunch spot, Sweetgreen on Bethesda Avenue, for a quick and healthy Santorini Salad (440 calories).

I have tried a few of their signature salads including: The Bondi, Curry Gold, and the most popular Guacamole Greens, but for summer I feel that the Santorini, with chopped romaine lettuce, roasted shrimp, feta cheese, grapes, fresh mint, chickpeas; topped with a fresh lemon squeeze is by far the best. The mint and lemon create a zesty flavor with no added sugar for the calorie conscious.

I occasionally get the cucumber basil yogurt dressing on the side in case I want to liven it up a bit; but trust me the lemon squeeze is all you need and you will save 100 calories!

“It’s a very hot day, and I wanted something light. I am very health conscious and I feel Sweetgreen is very fresh and seems good for you. I also love to add avocados,” exclaimed Montgomery County resident, Marlene Bekman.

Feeling frisky? Add an all-natural yogurt with berries and coconut. Yum!
