organicgirl Greens

Recently, I was provided with a sample of organicgirl greens. organicgirl is a California based company that provides organic produce. Their salads are washed three times and packaged in clam shells made from 100% recycled plastic.

I was given 3 different products to try: baby spring mix, supergreens, and romaine heart leaves. Even though I initially though the clamshells took up a lot of room in my fridge, I also liked them. It made it easy to open up and take out the portion of the greens I needed without wrestling with a bag. It ensured that for the spring mix I got a good sampling of all the types I wanted since I had full access to everything in the container. Baby Brother was also able to conveniently take one to work to eat.

organicgirl is launching its first-ever SuperGreens Chef Tour in San Diego, beginning January 27th. The SuperGreens Chef Tour will take place at 20 Vons grocery stores around San Diego County, over the course of two weekends, and will be lead by professional chefs, featuring both food demonstrations and sampling of meals made with organicgirl produce. I shop at Vons every weekend so I definitely will be on the lookout for it.

After seeing all the pretty greens, I immediately set about making a salad. Inspired by the “super greens,” I decided to make my salad with some superfruits. I added blueberries, strawberries, dried persimmons. I wanted to add pomegranate seeds but I didn’t have any. I tied it all together with a vinaigrette dressing.

It’s sort of hard to review produce. It is what it is. I can say that the salad leaves were very fresh, crisp and green. They’ve been with me for about a week and are none are wilting.

Disclosure: I was provided with complimentary samples of the organicgirl salads, but my opinions are my own.
