The Merrion Hotel have been on to advise of their new Salad Days menu prepared by executive head chef Ed Cooney, running this summer for The Terrace.

With its breath-taking grounds in the middle of one of the city’s most cherished landmarks, the stunning garden location is Dublin’s best kept secret. The new menu reflects nutrition and nourishment while having a healthy living and calorie conscious philosophy behind it.

Guests can escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and soak up the sun in the blossomed gardens while enjoying eye catching, palatable dishes. The menu comprises of delectable plates of refreshing, exclusive salads including Cottage Cheese and Cucumber which boasts a plentiful amount of vitamin C and contains luscious strawberries and blueberries to make up a mouth watering treat and the appetising Pomegranate and Feta – which is full of omega 3 with luscious pomegranate, feta, quinoa and baby spinach.

Also on offer are appetising desserts for those who wish to reward themselves after their healthy salads and includes an Irish cheese selection offering and a Dessert of Day. Each dish has been nutritionally analysed and the calorie count features on the menu.

*The Terrace will be open weather permitting.
