Celebrate National Salad Month with B&W Greens
Since 1992, people across the country have been celebrating National Salad Month throughout the month of May to highlight the health benefits and endless flavor possibilities that salads have to offer.
Not only do salads serve as a delicious way to reach your daily recommended vegetable intake of 2-3 cups, but they are also versatile enough to feature unexpected flavor combinations that are sweet and savory and everything in between.
Here at B&W, we believe that the most important part of a salad starts with the base of greens that lay below all of the tasty ingredients on top. A great way to start your salad is to pick up some nutritional super leaves that will kickstart the flavors of the salad.
Watercress, arugula and spinach are all baby leaves that are packed with distinct flavors and serve as a refreshing boost to any salad. Not only are these greens delicious, but between the three of them boast a host of nutrients including iron, calcium, protein, and an infinite number of vitamins and minerals. Watercress specifically is measured as the most nutrient dense food by the Aggregate Nutrient Density Index, achieving a 1000 out of 1000 rating—so the next time you are planning a salad, be sure to consider using our leafy greens as the number one ingredient.
If you feel that you are stuck in a salad rut, uncover a slew of unique recipes on our website that feature everything from fruit, to fish to chicken and more atop our popular leaves.
