It’s a great feeling to find products that are good AND good for you. Organic Girl set a new standard of fresh with these great additions.

My husband is spoiled. It’s OK, I say that lovingly and because he will say the same thing. Teaching culinary classes at an Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar boutique has its perks; we are never without the ingredients for an amazing vinaigrette. Being an avid runner, he pays particular attention to what fuels his body. He can’t help it…the boy simply loves healthy, fresh and flavorful!

Although I love making salad dressings from scratch, it’s really nice to have other options in the fridge. It’s great to have something a little more convenient, creamy and decadent, that keeps the same standards of flavor and freshness as we do when we make our dressings from scratch.

Enter Organic Girl’s new line of fresh salads and salad dressings.

NEW organicgirl sweet pea PEPPERGREENS lemon agave

Organic Girl offers a full line of baby greens in earth-friendly 100% recycled plastic clamshells, made from 100% recycled PET bottles (5 bottles per clamshell to be exact) that are fully recyclable. Greens are also washed THREE times before packaging.

New greens from Organic Girl include boxed pepper greens and sweet pea greens. The pepper greens are out of this world with a flavorful blend of baby mustard greens, spicy Arugula, spinach and other greens. I love a little spice in my salads and the pepper green mix is superb.

The sweet pea greens are a mix of baby greens with sweet pea shoots. The tendrils from the pea shoots make a beautiful presentation.2015-11-12 10.11.10

The first dressings we tasted were the White Cheddar and Kale Parmesan. Both were equally fantastic. Incredibly flavorful and fresh. Sweet boy was a little skeptical at first when I asked him to steer away from his vinaigrette and try these with me. He was very pleasantly surprised. “Wow, you can just taste the fresh!” he said.

The white cheddar really won my heart. I’m such a cheese girl, and this dressing tasted like the best aged cheddar in creamy form. You can taste the freshness of the green onion and buttermilk.

Next, we tried the Lemon Agave and the Fresh Tomato Italian. I cannot begin to tell you how many recipes these will be used for in the near future.

It’s a great feeling to find products that are good AND good for you. Organic Girl set a new standard of fresh with these great additions.
