SALINAS, CA - Four fresh and flavorful new salad kits are coming to market this spring and summer—courtesy of Taylor Farms. The fan-favorite ready-to-eat healthy fresh food brand’s latest line additions will bring its chopped salad kit portfolio up to 18 offerings—with new Tangerine Crunch, Salsa Ranch, Steakhouse Wedge, and Roasted Garlic Chopped Kits suitable for most any occasion.
“We continue to push the boundaries on flavor and recipe innovation to deliver amazing taste experiences,” said Charis Neves, Salad Kit Product Director, in a press release. “These chopped kits offer more than just a side salad for lunch or dinner. Now you can take Tangerine Crunch to your next brunch or grab our Roasted Garlic kit and add freshly grilled veggies and proteins for a delicious dish in minutes. Consumers crave variety and ease and our salad kits offer both while complementing traditional summertime pairings.”
Taylor Farms noted that, according to Nielsen, salad kits represent as much as 20 percent of the value-added salad category and have experienced double-digit growth year-over-year—growing 17 percent in the past 52 weeks. And, the company notes, Taylor Farms’ new recipe creations are a result of direct consumer demand for fresh, and flavorful options.
New offerings include:
- Roasted Garlic Chopped Kit - Freshly chopped romaine, red cabbage, shredded broccoli, green onion, celery, parsley, smoked white cheddar cheese, and an herb crouton crumble with creamy garlic dressing
