Ten Tips to Celebrate Salad Month


Get out of your salad rut!

Salads are one of the most versatile meals, but it’s still possible to get stuck in a rut.  Here are our expert tips on how to add variety to your salad rotation. 

  1. Head to the border.  Our Border Ole Salad has a little bit of everything, including lean chicken and beans served alongside creamy avocado, savory olives, cool tomatoes and crisp iceberg lettuce. 
  2. Get nutty with our Blackberry Salad with Avocados and Almonds.  Six ingredients plus dressing and you’ve got a delicious salad with a hint of crunch.
  3. Combine two favorites – Nicoise and Caesar with our Tuna Caesar Salad
  4. Enjoy it on a bun with our Buffalo Chicken Burgers.
  5. Top your pizza!Our Chopped Bacon Caesar Pie is Y-U-M!
  6. Blend it.  Our foolproof gazpacho is a mix of vegetable juice and our DOLE® Southwest Salad Kit and a delicious way to start a meal.  Garnish with diced tomatoes, avocado and cilantro before eating. 
  7. Embrace summer by layering stone fruit or berries on top of our salad kits for subtle sweetness.  Our Summer Peach & Blueberry Salad is the perfect way to get fruity!
  8. Try a two-ingredient dinner with DOLE® Just Add Chicken Salad Kits.Simply cook your chicken and add sauté sauce, toss salad and enjoy!Choose from Lemon Herb, Sweet Orange, Pesto Caesar and Roasted Red Pepper!
  9. Go BBQ with adding broccoli to classic slaw mix.  Top with a mix of your favorite BBQ sauce and apple cider vinegar for a quick side!
  10. Drink it! Just add a handful of spring greens, kale, romaine or spinach to your breakfast smoothie and feel good about tallying a serving of veg before 9am!

You’ll notice that our salads add crisp freshness, crunch, texture and variety with small add-ons like tortilla chips, nuts, crispy noodles and cheese.  With these toppers, portion control is key.  We urge you to measure these so added fat is kept in check and doesn’t sabotage your good choices!  Happy Salad Month!

PRO TIP:  If you have a bag of salad on hand that may go bad before it gets eaten, just toss the whole thing in the freezer.  Whether it’s 50/50 blend, spring mix or spinach it’ll be perfect to sauté or add to smoothies and soups when you’re ready for it!
