Such consistent salad failures are why I jumped at the opportunity to sample Sprout Salad’s new seasonal menu.

Last week, I stopped at Burger Burger’s Mall of American location. The fast-casual restaurant launched a number of new menu items, including cheese curds, mac-and-cheese bites, new chicken sandwiches and more. Visiting was a must.
