Chicago's newest food truck is The Little Salad Truck. The truck, which according to its Twitter page launched today, is the brainchild of Yale Class of 2012 alums Jerry Choinski and Etkin Tekin. The truck was first conceptualized as The Little Salad Shop in New Haven, Conn. and served salads, wraps and smoothies. Illinois native Choinski saw Chicago as an opportune market for a salad chain and hopes to open storefront locations in the city by the end of the year. The truck serves pre-made salads from the "Classics" menu, but also will make you your own salad, allowing customers to create their own combinations from more than 45 ingredients and 17 dressings, then pick up the salad the next day.
