The new Bang Bang Chicken Salad contains 25g of protein per serving

Pret a Manger has expanded its high-protein lunch options with a new protein box and salad option. Bang Bang Chicken Salad - chargrilled chicken in a roasted sesame sauce, carrot and mooli slaw, pickled carrot and cabbage and edamame beans - contains 25g of protein per serving (rsp: £4.79/294g).

A Smoked Salmon Protein Box has also been unveiled following the success of Pret’s chicken variant, which made its debut last April.

Containing 27g of protein per portion, the ingredients consist of Scottish smoked salmon, free-range eggs, sliced avocado, edamame beans, spinach, a lemon wedge and green dressing (rsp: £4.99/253g).

The new additions come as Pret’s 12-strong soup menu - half of which is vegan - returns to shops for the winter.
