Go, Go, Goji! UNO(R) Fall Menu Is 'Berry' Delicious

BOSTON, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Uno Chicago Grill®, America's Healthiest Chain Restaurant(1), introduces some "berry" delicious options as part of its limited-time-only fall menu.

This exciting fall menu stars two super berries: cranberries and goji berries. While cranberries are a well-known and popular accent to many dishes, UNO now introduces its guests to goji berries, which were once the territory of a select few health food aficionados. Goji berries, classified as a superfruit, are quickly gaining popularity as a healthy addition to a variety of dishes.

This delicious berry, grown on the foothills of the Himalayas, has flavors reminiscent of cherries, cranberries and raisins. Nutrient dense, it contains 18 kinds of amino acids - including eight essential amino acids - 21 trace minerals, and more carotenoids than any other food. Goji berries also have 500 times more vitamin C, by weight, than oranges, as well as vitamins B1, B2, B6 and E. The goji berry is often referred to as the anti-aging berry because it contains significant polysaccharides, which are shown to strengthen the immune system and slow the aging process.(2)

These delicious berries have a starring role in UNO's new Power Salad with Goji Mix and Ocean Spray® Sweetened Dried Cranberries. This healthy, 420-calorie dish is high in fiber (8 grams) and low in saturated fat (2 grams). It combines a colorful mix of spinach, sliced chicken breast, plum tomatoes, carrots, feta cheese, red grapes, and a 'power mix' of Thompson raisins, soy nuts, almonds, pepitas, Ocean Spray® Sweetened Dried Cranberries and the exceptionally healthy goji berry.

Cranberries, also known for their powerful antioxidants, are featured in numerous offerings including UNO's artisanal Kabocha Pumpkin Soup, made from Kabocha squash that is grown especially for UNO each year. The flavor is sweet, similar to pumpkin and sweet potato combined, and accented with Ocean Spray® Sweetened Dried Cranberries to provide color and tang to the dish.

There are several other dishes that feature a berry blast, including a Crunchy Chicken Wrap and a Whole-Grain Brown Rice, both complemented with Ocean Spray Sweetened Dried Cranberries.

UNO also features some berry good libations such as the Autumn Breeze and the Non-Alcoholic Harvest Lemonade, which combines fresh lemonade with Ocean Spray 100% Juice Cranberry & Pomegranate juice blend.
