Young tossers

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - YOU ARE NOT ALONE -

The gym bun­nies of SoCoDu are lov­ing Toss, the new “fresh food fast” salad bar in Black­rock, Co Dublin.

I’ve al­ways been a sucker for salad coun­ters when I’m on the road look­ing for a quick lunch fix, but my choices have al­ways been dis­as­trous petrol­sta­tion-qual­ity com­bi­na­tions of thick, gooey tuna mayo and sin­ful slurps of egg mayo, piled high in a big, soft brown roll — the healthy op­tion! Prob­a­bly 1,000 calo­ries a bite, even without the bot­tled smoothie!

Toss salad bar is owned by David Moore, above right, and De­clan Cum­mins, while Gemma Hop­kins, above left, is the nu­tri­tion­ist chef. At Toss, you choose your wrap, bread or salad bowl, your green­ery, plus pro­teins from a wide se­lec­tion of meats, prawns, eggs, av­o­cado, as well as veg­eta­bles. You have to make a con­scious choice as to what dress­ings you’re go­ing to anoint your healthy food with, so you’re a lit­tle less likely to say, “I’ll have four ta­ble­spoons of mayo please!”
