Beginning April 21, people throughout the U.S. can enjoy a salad in an exciting and different way. McDonald’s is introducing the McSalad Shaker at restaurants nationwide — an innovative and convenient approach to eating salads like never before. The McSalad Shaker is served in a tall, clear cup with a domed lid that allows customers on the go to pour on their choice of dressing and shake it up, spreading the dressing evenly throughout.

“As part of McDonald’s 2000 menu strategy, the McSalad Shaker is among the first of several new food items to debut at McDonald’s restaurants in the U.S.,” said Alan Feldman, president, McDonald’s USA. “McDonald’s continues to lead the industry by offering our customers great-tasting, innovative products, at a good value and that suit their busy lifestyles.”

“The revolutionary packaging concept makes eating a McSalad Shaker easy and fun,” said Gerald Tomlinson, corporate chef, McDonald’s. “It’s very portable and the clear packaging allows our customers to see the fresh ingredients from top to bottom.”

To celebrate this exciting addition to its menu, McDonald’s will be shaking things up at LaGuardia airport by giving travelers on the go their choice of a fresh Chef, Grilled Chicken Caesar or Garden McSalad Shaker. From 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (EDT) today, in the US Air terminal, people can meet Ronald McDonald® and enjoy a McSalad Shaker at the airport or carry it with them for a later meal just about anywhere — on their flight, in a taxi, hotel room or back at home.

McSalad Shaker salads are currently available, at participating McDonald’s restaurants, in three meal choices, including Chef, Grilled Chicken Caesar and Garden. The Chef McSalad Shaker contains a green salad mix, julienne ham, julienne turkey, a cheddar and jack cheese blend, chopped eggs, chopped tomato and green onions. The Chicken Caesar McSalad Shaker is made of a green salad mix, sliced grilled chicken breast and shredded parmesan cheese.
