Thought I'd come offer an update from the email I just received RE: Summer 2018 menu :)

 

 

Thanks for reaching out! At CAVA, we change our menu four times a year to reflect the change in seasons and think eating seasonally is a great way to fuel your life. Below lists our CAVA menu items that are Whole30- compliant, including our Summer 2018 menu items!
 

  • Bases: Supergreens, Arugula, Baby Spinach, Romaine, Splendidgreens

  • Dip + Spreads: Harissa

  • Proteins: Braised Lamb, Braised Beef (available at select locations), Spicy Lamb Meatballs, Seasonal Roasted Vegetables

  • Toppings: Shredded Romaine, Cabbage Slaw, Tomato + Onion - Diced, Diced Cucumbers, Tomato + Cucumber, Kalamata Olives, Lemon Wedge, Fresh Mint, Pickled Banana Peppers, White Bean Salad

  • Dressings: Lemon Herb Tahini, Green Harissa

  • Juices + Teas: Unsweetened Black Tea, Jasmine Green Tea

Please make sure you're asking at the restaurant each time - they've listed 'white bean salad' which would not be compliant so it makes me somewhat concerned that they're not totally sure what Whole30 requires. That said it IS everyone's responsibility to check for themselves but thank you for posting this, it definitely will make it easier to plan in advance for people choosing this restaurant.

Yeah - this response came from the company itself, and I did respond back telling them that the white bean salad wouldn't be compliant.
