LycoRed’s record-setting salad – which also included fresh herbs and a citrus-lemon vinaigrette – was created to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The publicity stunt was also meant to encourage Americans to add more tomatoes and other fresh produce to their diets.

Upon receiving the Guinness nod of recognition, half of the salad was handed out as a free healthy lunch to passersby in Times Square. The other half of the salad was donated to City Harvest, a food rescue organization that helps feed nearly 1.4 million New Yorkers.
