Salad Bar Socials: How to Host One Today for a Healthy Community! by Tiffany Zook
Each Monday afternoon, folks gather at the local park to fill up their mason jars, not with local brew, but local greens and homemade dressings.As a community health initiative, a few entrepreneurial friends designed this lunch event to share their home businesses, health tips, nutritional products and exercise schedules.
Everyone brings two bowls of their favorite salad toppings. Apples, arugula, asparagus, artichokes – a giant salad bar social. Dressing goes in the jar first, then crunchy veggies, fruits, proteins and, lastly, fresh greens; spinach, kale, romaine. Before we get creative layering toppings, we circle up, introduce ourselves and discuss our goals, wishes or challenges. We walk away with two jars full of Texas bounty and many supportive new friends.
Host one today!
