SHERMAN OAKS, Calif., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ — Six types of greens. 16 protein styles. 32 dressings. 64 toppings. Pick your favorites … Mix ’em. Toss ’em. Enjoy!

For people who haven’t ventured far from iceberg lettuce with tomatoes and ranch dressing when if comes to salads — prepare to be overwhelmed at the The Dressing Room near Ventura and Van Nuys.

It can only be described as a salad bonanza — the kind of healthy, delicious variety that makes keeping your New Year’s resolution to lose weight a lot easier.

The Dressing Room is a healthy “fast food” hot spot that offers 16 different salads made up of Classics, Favorites and Specialties, as well as an option to create your own salad. Chef Kameron Franco also prepares two soups from scratch daily.

Proving that eating healthy can be fast as well, The Dressing Room will make your salad “to go.” And to make it truly mobile, the salads can be wrapped in a sun-dried tomato tortilla for salad to go, on the go!

The Dressing Room also prides itself on using locally grown and harvested produce from Southern California whenever possible, supporting local farmers who believe in cultivating the finest organic produce. The unique, fresh ingredients range from mango and jicama on the Specialty salad, The Napa Delight, to roasted corn and black bean salsa on one of the Favorites salads, The Denim.

And if you think you’ll have to break the bank to “eat healthy,” think again. The salads at The Dressing Room start at $6.95. They also offer catering. So instead of pizza at the next office lunch meeting, try a fresher option. And to truly make this a no-excuses option — you can even order your salad online.

“With the latest government statistics showing that 30 percent of U.S. adults — over 60 million people-are obese or overweight, salad is a good start when you’re trying to shed some pounds,” owner Don Schaefer says. “It’s not too late to reaffirm your New Year’s vow. Forget that donut — have a salad.”
