Classic Salads Looking to Supplement Spring Mix Category with New Nordic Blends
- by Melissa De Leon Chavez
WATSONVILLE, CA - Classic Salads is looking to supplement the Spring Mix business at select restaurants with its new Nordic mixes Nordic Blend and Nordic Spring.
Featuring a distinct mix of four red and green baby lettuces, the Nordic Blend seeks to bring a uniquely fresh crisp and heartiness to any salad, according to the company. The Nordic Spring mix, on the other hand, harmonizes what restaurants love about spring mix and the new Nordic Blend.
The frill of the leaves bring a lift to salad plates, while the mixes themselves are light and fluffy, setting it apart from the traditional spring mix and adding versatility to this strong branch of the foodservice market. This also allows for savings in food costs, as the volume of the plat requires fewer ounces per serving.
According to Classic Salads, both new blends bring a fresh crunch with a sweet flavor. Nordic Blend and Nordic Spring are equally able to maintain their crispness under heartier, creamier dressings as opposed to being restricted to thinner options like vinaigrettes.
The two new Nordic salad flavors feature 4 hybrid varieties of Red Leaf, Green Leaf, Tango, and Lolla Rosa. They contain rich, colorful upscale presentation, as well as versatility for use in salads, wraps, and sandwiches.
