Cooking Fever's Salad Bar is located in the Alpine Mountains and serves a variety of Ham or Bacon salads and a veggie wrap.  Oddly, the salad bar doesn't offer salad dressing.  Which is probably a good thing, because all the lettuce washing and chopping of each ingredient that is necessary is hard enough.  Fortunately, an Automatic Lettuce Washer becomes available after Level 27.  It is available for 72 hours only, and costs 40 gems.  It's a necessity just to keep up with orders.  So if you don't have enough gems to buy it, don't play above Level 25 until you have 40 gems.

  • Don't forget to eat your vegetables!
  • Salad Bar is coming to the Alpine Resort!
  • Eat healthy and serve delicious salads, vegetarian smoothies and wraps!
  • Get Your Green On in this new, fresh and exciting restaurant!
