Menu transparencies make Kronos Nonfat Greek Yogurt the perfect 1:1 recipe substitute for mayo and sour cream. Its thick, creamy texture delivers multiple health benefits and endless menu options. Here, it replaced mayo for a healthy twist.

Ingredients

6-8 red skin potatoes
2 Tbsp. red bell pepper, diced
2 Tbsp. celery, diced
3 Tbsp. Kronos Greek Yogurt
2 Tbsp. fat free sour cream
1 Tbsp. brown mustard
2 Tbsp. fresh chives, finely chopped
1 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

Steps

  1. Boil the potatoes whole. Once fork tender, remove from heat, drain and rinse under cold water. Place in fridge until cool. Cut into bite size pieces.
  2. Combine the potatoes, celery and peppers in a bowl and add the sour cream, yogurt and mustard. Stir until all ingredients are mixed and the potatoes are evenly coated.
  3. Mix in 1 Tbsp. of the chives, reserving the rest for garnish. Salt and pepper to your taste. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, garnish with the remaining chives and serve.

Team uniforms are a way we encourage fun. I tell the mangers that every person on your team needs to look like a member of your team, but they can decide together what they want to wear. When the students see a cafeteria person that is matching and having fun with their outfits, they relate to those people better. We don’t want them to look stiff and stuffy.

We have spent considerable money making cafeterias cool again. New paint jobs, crazy color patterns, custom graphics and changes in lighting schemes have made some of our cafes popular gathering places. We’ve also experimented with videos, cable TV programs and music. We involved a number of student groups and student input in improving the atmosphere, especially in our high school and middle school cafeterias.

“This is the best meatloaf I’ve ever had,” a diner at Alcatel-Lucent telecommunications in Naperville, Ill., once told chef Iraj Fernando. The dish was rooted in a tried-and-true source—the “Betty Crocker Cookbook.”

“I just seasoned the breadcrumbs differently, used fresh parsley and beat the eggs to make them frothier,” says Fernando, executive chef and manager for Southern Foodservice Management.

Consumer interest is up for classic and comforting meat dishes like meatballs (16%), beef pot pie (26%) and meatloaf (12%) for dinner now compared to two years ago, shows...

With all the hype around probiotics, we decided to create a daily dish that incorporates probiotics in addition to prebiotics. You rarely hear about prebiotics, and this was a great way to highlight how the two work synergistically to maintain a healthy gut. Our chefs have developed menu items such as roasted salmon with yogurt and mint vinaigrette; kale and quinoa salad with warm maple dressing; and leek soup with pickled cucumbers, to name a few.
