To celebrate one of our latest Destination Salads, the Peruvian Cobb, Walter (a Peruvian expat and General Manager at 1730 Penn) and Michael (District Manager in DC and world traveler) reminisced on their time in Peru. 

Walter: Lima is where everyone starts their Peruvian adventure. The capital city is the host to the country’s international airport, but is also the place I call home. My family still lives there, and I love how the city sits right on the coast.

Michael: Of course I went straight for the food. My mission was to have ceviche in Lima, and when I did, it was incredible.

Walter: Ceviche was invented in Peru so it should be! It’s traditionally made with trout or flounder, aji peppers, red onion and cilantro, served with sweet potato and corn. The raw seafood is never put over heat, but rather cooked by the acids of the lemon juice.

Michael: Is ceviche the meal you miss the most?

Walter: What I miss the most is lomo saltado - sirloin strips marinated in soy sauce, aji amarillo, red onion and garlic all fried in a wok. It is usually served with rice and fried potatoes. It’s not what most people expect from a South American dish, but Asian immigrants - specifically the Japanese - have had a huge impact on the food in Peru. There has been a shift though; as quinoa is growing in popularity, it is starting to replace rice and in many of our dishes.

Michael: I didn’t spend much time as I’d have liked in Lima because I went straight down to Cuzco and Machu Picchu, which was absolutely beautiful.

Walter: You’re lucky; seeing Machu Picchu is something most people never get the chance to see. I’ve never been there, and most Peruvians don’t get the chance to go. What was it like?

Michael: Words cannot describe! A mix of nature and ancient civilization, the work it must have taken to build all of the structures at the peak of 10,000 feet above sea level is unfathomable. If you ever have the chance to stand on Mt. Machu Picchu and look over the city you should make the trip. My one last question for you, how did we do on the Peruvian Cobb?

Walter: So many flavors remind me of home. The rich bold taste of the olives combined with the aji amarillo… I have to admit it is true to the flavor of the country.

It’s last call for the Peruvian Cobb before we explore new destinations in May. Try for yourself the fruity, smooth heat of Aji Amarillo Ranch. To find a Chop’t nearest you, click here.

Destination: Peru

The Republic of Peru, located in western South America, has a culture rich both in history and cuisine.

Peru is home to one of the New Seven Wonders of the world. Situated on an Andean mountain ridge above the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu is a 15th century Inca site and regarded as the most familiar icon of Inca civilization. The buildings of Machu Picchu have endured due in part to their good foundations.

The foundation of Peruvian cuisine is the aji amarillo. Native to the Andes, it is a vibrant yellow pepper unique for the fruity flavor that survives its smooth heat. At 25,000 – 55,000 Scoville heat units, it shares the same spicy bite as the tabasco pepper. Its ubiquity in Peru means it can be used fresh, canned, in paste form or dried. With this flexibility, the aji amarillo works its way into soups and sauces alike. Try it in our Peruvian Cobb and homemade Aji Amarillo Ranch.

For recipes using aji amarillo, try these:

Ají de Gallina - a traditional Peruvian dish prepared with shredded chicken dish in a spicy sauce. Often enjoyed on cold days.

Ceviche - a seafood dish typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, and spiced with ají or chili peppers.

Ají de Huacatay - a sauce featuring huacatay, otherwise known as Peruvian black mint.

Customer Craft Salad: “Jersey City Vegan Classic” with soy-marinated tofu, avocado, charred broccoli, sunflower seeds, carrots, corn and tomatoes chop’t with kale and Chop’t’s homemade, small-batch Balsamic Vinaigrette

How Emily Does Chop’t

I am someone who takes my salads seriously (which is why I love Chop’t!). In fact, I have an acronym that I made up that I think is the key to crafting the perfect salad: CPS. Color. Protein. Sprinkle. 

The more colors in your salad means more variety of veggies means more fantastic and nourishing vitamins and minerals for our bodies! Picking the right veggies for a vegan salad can mean the difference between feeling like you need something more or feeling completely satisfied after you’ve finished. Go for veggies like broccoli and carrots!

Protein will be what makes the salad fill your belly and makes you feel full. In this case, I chose the soy-marinated tofu. Plant-based proteins are a great and satisfying way to go, and Chop’t has the widest selection of them that I’ve found in salad joints. I mean, I’m stoked if I see one kind of tofu, but Chop’t has TWO (and MORE!).

Lastly is the sprinkle – the component that brings the salad full circle. Sunflower seeds totally fit the bill. Plus, they bump your salad’s protein content up quite a bit as well as add to the variety of texture to your salad. I think a variety of textures makes the salad fun to eat. I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I like it when eating is fun… right?

I always craft my Chop’t salads with kale. You wanna know why? Not only does it contain a plethora nutritional delights (kale is the new black, y’all!), but it also can take your stomach a little bit of time to digest which will help to make you feel fuller for longer. I chose Balsamic Vinaigrette, because it is a classic and my favorite go-to dressing in general – it just goes with everything. Another great thing about this dressing is that the oils paired with the “massaging” (chopping) that the Chop’r does makes for a harmonious combination for our taste buds: Doing so sweetens up the kale so it is more palatable for folks and less bitter.
