I think it's normal for torts to go after sald type mixtures first rather than grass so I would keep adding more and more grass and reduce some of salad mixtures that your giving him/her. Just make sure he is still eating though.
You may want to try putting some hay and grass in a blender together to help chop it up some...If you let him outside in a grassy area they will more than likely start chowing down on whatever is green and whatever is in front of them. They natural sunlight does a lot of stimulating with appetite and movement--he/she may start looking for some weeds or clovers.
Sometimes they get picky and will not eat for a few days but when they get hungry they will eventually eat.
It could also be the grass that you are feeding..what type is it?
I feed mine a Tortoise Grassland Mixture that is a combo of Bermuda, Timothy, Kentucky, etc. In fact I've now resorted to growing some grass in portable containers since my older one completly mowed down and depleted his enclosure of anything green that pops up.
