It’s the most summery salad ever, with strawberry slices, blueberries, mandarin oranges and pineapple, plus Panera’s signature lemon-herb chicken, toasted pecan pieces and poppyseed dressing. (Here are 5 reasons to leave the office for lunch today.) It’s on the menu in both whole and half sizes, and brings your mouth some crunchy, some savory and a whole lotta sweetness.
