I heard about sweetgreenback in November 2012 from a friend of mine who was obsessed with it when she lived in DC. When she heard it was coming to Boston she made sure to email me and tell me that it will become my favorite salad spot in Boston, and I think she is right!
After teaching a fun and sweaty dance class I met up with my friend and photographer Lucie Wicker for a sneak peek tasting at sweetgreen!
I might have been the happiest customer in the history of sweetgreen and kept cheering after everything. What? I love salad!
I opted for the guacamole salad after three different people told me that it was the best. After my salad went through the assembly line they asked if I wanted any more toppings. EEEK. I said yes! How could I say NO? So, I added raw beets, sweet potatoes, broccoli, and spicy quinoa. I guess with that many "add on's" I did NOT get the "guacamole salad".
Let me tell you I was SO full from that salad. It was delicious, and they really give you a good amount of each topping. I was most pleasantly surprised by the dressing. I asked for it on the side (as I always do) but after trying it I realized I would have been just fine with it mixed in the salad already. It felt light and fresh and after talking to some of the sweetgreen employees I found out that all of their dressings are homemade! SCORE.
Dessert: froyo. I had to stand up and stretch a little before dessert time. But after a few belly taps I was ready to go!
I love crunchy things in my ice cream and froyo. Whenever there are graham crackers or waffle cone pieces I always get that! So yes, that is what I got this time too. I had them throw in 2 little candied pecans because someone said they were "amazing". Normally I would not have asked for the pecans. But yes, they were quite awesome.
I love this place and will go back for sure. If you are in Boston GO CHECK IT OUT!
