What We Love About Winter

The winter season brings new gifts to the MIXT menu, including the freshest and most nutritious in-season ingredients like radishes, butternut squash, pomegranate, and Brussels sprouts. We threw in delicious morsels like house-baked falafel and sautéed mushrooms to keep things interesting. Our winter menu has an array of deceptively healthy and refreshing options to jumpstart 2019.

Like what , you ask? The POM salad features the unlikely combination of  grilled chicken, roasted Brussels sprouts, pomegranate, cotija cheese, and a North African berbere dressing.

Not sure about that berbere dressing? It’s a savory, slightly spicy dressing that derives its unique flavor from berbere spice and perfectly balances the saltiness of the cheese and sweet of pomegranate. Pomegranate does its part to add a tart zing and give you a boost of antioxidants to help your body fight free radicals, protect cells from damage, and reduce inflammation.

Here’s to a 2019 full of everyday adventures and healthy habits that are so craveworthy, they last a lifetime.
