Balance your meal with a soup or salad

Thursday, May 12th, 2016

SaladFor the bulk of most people’s lives, we’ve heard endlessly about eating balanced meals. And to have stood such a test of time, there’s definitely something to it all.

When it comes to healthy servings of the meat and potatoes variety like you’ll get with a lot of dishes at Perko’s, often times you’ll also have the option to add a soup or salad for only about $2 more.

For the sake of a well-balanced meal, we say take that option when it’s there! Why not round things out with some greens, other vegetables, or a warm soup to get your meal started off? That kind of balance is something that the food pyramid we’re all so familiar with would definitely approve of, so why leave any part of the pyramid excluded from your meal?

The Thai Chicken Salad is no light load

Crispy Thai Chicken resizeAt some point over the years it seems that a perception has grown that ordering a salad automatically means you’re eating light. We’re not sure where that started how people bought into that theory, yet it persists.

When you look past that false perception of things, you can see a whole lot of tremendous potential that salads can bring as an entrée. And we think one fantastic example of this is our Crispy Thai Chicken Salad at Perko’s.

We start off with the essentials of fresh greens, tossed with some cabbage. Then we add in mushrooms, carrots, peanuts, raisins, and chow mein noodles. The salad really gets its bulk when we top the creation with some crispy chicken and a Thai peanut dressing added over it all.

It might not be your mammoth serving of meat and potatoes that is often associated with a big meal, but it also won’t be any kind of light meal either. And if you’re trying to stick to a more strict diet, you still can take home the piece of mind that you ordered the salad, even if that mentality falls into that negative stereotype toward salads that we mentioned before. Just think of yourself as getting the best of both worlds.
