Salad Innovations

Culinary Arts students prepared quinoa chicken salads as part of an FCCLA Food Innovations competition. The project involved completing an “Indulgent Salad Dish” and surveying consumers for their feedback on ways to improve the salad. Students will then take the suggestions, remake the salads the following week and re-survey consumers on the results.
