This article reveals the plan of Nancy Levandowski, director of dining at Iowa State University (ISU), to expand their fall salad line-up in 2008. The Union Drive Marketplace, renovated five years ago, is a marché concept with a different tossed-to-order salad each day, plus a salad bar that has been expanded to offer more grains, nuts, dried fruits and different styles of greens. More hummus, black beans, roasted vegetables and edamame will be offered next year, she says.
