The Melting Pot understands that starting off with the cheese fondue may have a serious toll on your appetite that is why next in line on your “Big Night Out” is the salad, or fresh salads. Made with seasonal ingredients, you can enjoy each of these salads with one of The Melting Pot’s homemade dressings. You can order from among the following:-
The Melting Pot House Salad: Crunchy iceberg lettuce and romaine, Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, croutons, and egg slices are mixed with the peppercorn Ranch dressing or the sweet and tangy House dressing. An entirely delectable salad you can enjoy at leisure.
Spinach Mushroom Salad: Mushroom is an all-time favorite of diners throughout America because it packs in the chunkiness of meat and the goodness of vegetables. It is this combo that comes together with fresh spinach, red onion, bacon, and Roma tomatoes, all drenched in the warm Burgundy Shallot Vinaigrette.
Caesar Salad: Crispy Romaine, shredded Parmesan cheese, croutons, Caesar dressing, and a handful of Parmesan-encrusted pine nuts come together to form a light, breezy offering of salad, which you can fill your stomach with on your “Big Night Out.”
Other offerings on the salad menu are:- California Salad and Big Night Out Salad.
Did we hear someone yell “Yippeeeee!”, well that is the official reaction whenever the waiter brings you your entrées on your Big Night Out. Made with a variety of steak, chicken, and seafood, and served with dipping sauces and vegetables on the side, the entrées are an experience in itself.
