Fresh produce wears many hats when it comes to menu innovation. Take plant-based burgers, for example. This is the fastest growing dish on restaurant menus, and while the patty is typically processed, fresh produce serves as the frame to create a familiar burger look and taste. This is whytomato, onion, and lettuce are the top three pairings on menus for plant-based burgers (Datassential MenuTrends). For birria, a Mexican slow-cooked meat stew and trending taco filling, top produce pairings include onion, cilantro, and pico de gallo. When it comes to hot chicken, slaw is a top pairing, as it helps tone down the heat in Nashville hot chicken sandwiches.
