Foodie Fridays

I’ve seen this feature out in the blogging world a lot recently and seeing as though I just had the MOST AMAZING salad for dinner I thought I’d give it a shot. In future I will put up my own recipes but today I bring you…

Pranzo Veloce (meaning quick lunch in Italian)

This new independent brand is brought to you by the husband and wife team behind successful frozen yoghurt chain Frurt. They specialise in making pizza’s, salads and baguettes fresh on the premises at Media City Manchester.

Naturally, I chose a salad and it was delicious.


I love that you get to build your salad from scratch, no pre-packaged rubbish bulked out with leaves and merely sprinkled with the good stuff & no ingredients dripping in grease and high calorie dressing.  You literally get to control the calories & more importantly the taste.  I started with the basics; lettuce, cucumber & tomatoes before adding peppers, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, jalapenos, sweetcorn and hummus, which came in at £3.50, before adding a topping of falafel for a bargain of 25p extra! Finally I got to pick my own dressing, simply opting for a drizzle of olive oil & balsamic (with a helping of pepper & oregano).

Overall for taste and value for money I’d say it is well worth a second visit, team this with their friendly workforce and I think Pranzo Veloce will be another big success for the duo.

Hope everyone has a fab Foodie Friday!
