Earlier this week, Tossed‘s PR rep contacted me to ask if I was interested in trying their products and blogging about them. Tossed, a mostly salad restaurant, recently opened in the Prudential Center in Boston’s Back Bay. Coincidentally, I had plans to have dinner with A + B in Back Bay and a healthy quick meal is just what we wanted. I told Tossed I could go Thursday night and they told me they’d comp my meal. The timing was perfect.
Tossed is the type of place you might see in a food court or free standing on a busy street. In fact, there is a similar salad bar in the Natick Collection’s food court. This Tossed location is in the far end of the Pru ironically next to Au Bon Pan. The menu includes soups, salads, sandwiches, crepe wraps, gluten free options, and the option to create your own salad. A + B and I all opted to create our own salads.
I marked everything I wanted on a take-out menu so I could remember what I wanted when it was time to order. Because there’s so many Toss-in and Add-on options, I’d suggest Tossed create a paper check list to use for ordering. I ordered a salad starting with spinach and arugula, tossed in chickpeas, cucumber, jicama, chopped tomatoes, roasted peppers, roasted onions, and croutons, and added in feta cheese, avocado, and walnuts. I dressed my salad with lemon-basil vinaigrette. I expected the amount of toppings to diminish with each one I added. A + B also created delicious sounding salads and the generous gentleman taking our order comped all three of our meals! Happy Surprise #1
Our salads were ready in about five minutes. Happy Surprise #2 Tossed does not skimp on any toppings. Happy Surprise #3
Tossed salads are huge! Happy Surprise #4
This was a dream salad. A little bit of all of my favorite salad fix-ins plus a unique dressing was exactly what I needed. I was really impressed with the fresh ingredients, fast service, and combination of flavors. If I worked in or near the Pru, I would definitely frequent Tossed. The create your own salad options starts at $6.95. This a reasonable price for such a large salad and I’m guessing one of the cheaper salads around Boston. The quick service is perfect for a lunch break. Tossed also provides catering and delivery, and serves breakfast. If you live or work in the area, Tossed is worth a visit. If you don’t live or work in the area, venture over to the Pru anyways and have a freshly prepared salad!
A raved about her wonton strips. And yeah, that looks like a whole avocado in her salad! B created a salad with strawberries and tuna salad.
Thank you for the delicious salads, Tossed!
