With the Summer months officially upon us, la Madeleine invites guest to unwind and cool down with our new French-inspired menu offerings. Susan Dederen, our senior director of culinary, and team outdid themselves this season. These French classics “with a modern twist” are sure to delight.
- Chopped salmon niçoise salade – Inspired by the flavors of southern France, this chopped salade features greens topped with flaky salmon, diced egg, feta, potato, green beans, tomato and kalamata olives tossed in la Madeleine’s signature caesar dressing. Served with a sea salt breadstick.
- Grape & pecan chicken salade croissant – A delightful twist on our classic and long-time guest favorite chicken salade croissant, this new variation adds grapes and pecans to the recipe featuring balsamic marinated chicken and chopped celery. Served on a fresh-baked, flaky, butter croissant, guests will agree the new grape and pecan chicken salade c’est très magnifigue!
- Strawberry Cream Puff – Guests will delight in la Madeleine’s classic French summer dessert. A light, fluffy cream puff filled with fresh diced strawberries, strawberry pastry cream and strawberry whipped cream, and then finished with whipped cream, a strawberry, and powdered sugar. This dessert is the perfect ending to a la Madeleine salade or entrée.
- Pomegranate Berry Iced Tea – La Madeleine’s mango breeze iced tea lovers have a new flavor to try this summer! Refreshing pomegranate berry iced tea from Mighty Leaf is a naturally sweet (but not too sweet!) herbal infusion made from fruits of pomegranate, elderberry and citrus blend with hibiscus and rose hips.
We can’t think of a better way to escape the heat than with our chopped salmon nicoise salade, strawberry cream puff and cold glass of iced tea. Let us know what new item is your favorite on our Facebook page. Summer selections are available through September 3, 2013.
