Pret’s Summer Salads – To Dress or Not to Dress?

Pret a Manger have introduced a new and exciting range of delicious looking salads, just in time for summer. As always, Pret's salads are prepared every day from fresh, nutritious ingredients, free from additives and preservatives.
If you're on a diet or watching your waistline, choosing a salad for lunch might seem an obvious choice. And indeed, many salads are low in calories, that is, until they're coated in dressing. In fact, some salad dressings can more than double the total calorie content of a once healthy salad.

Fortunately, Pret salads come with a separate pot of dressing, so you have the choice of whether to dress or not to dress your salad. If your salad dressing has more calories than you need, simply use less or none at all.

Here's an overview of some of the new Summer salads range in Pret a Manger food outlets, together with a calorie and nutrition information for dressed and undressed salads.

  1. The total calories for the Asian Beef & Noodle Salad and Sesame Chicken Noodle Salad have been added up incorrectly. They should both be 100 calories more than listed.
