Naked grilled chicken salad, veggie tacos and green tea smoothies are on the menu at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.

The airport, which was recently ranked the fifth healthiest airport in the U.S. by the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine, showed off its healthy food options for passengers on Thursday, offering free samples to travelers in Terminal D.

“Passengers are asking for more choices, more options, better food and better quality,” said airport spokesman David Magana. “We would like to earn the title of healthiest airport in the world.”

Over the past few years, the airport has asked its concessionaires to add healthy items to their menu. With the renovation of its terminals, it is also adding new restaurants like Ling & Louie’s which offers sushi and stir-fry dishes and opened up in the new section of Terminal A last year.

On Thursday, passengers got to taste dishes from Urban Taco, UFood Grill, Qdoba, Chili’s Too, Bennigans and Jamba Juice which are all vendors inside the terminals at DFW.
