Creating a great tasting salad is all about combining fresh food while thinking about color, taste, and texture. Most salads are colorful – light green lettuce leaves, dark green spinach, red or yellow tomato chunks, orange carrots, green avocado, light green cucumber, pink radishes, red pepper, black olives, burgundy cranberries – tasty, and have some texture differences, but lack a super crunchy and delicious addition that takes a salad from good to great.
Enter Salad Essentials: fresh roasted almonds, sliced and spiced with real maple syrup, cayenne and sea salt. No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives are used to make these delicious spiced almonds: just wholesome natural ingredients. Made by Our Daily Eats of Albany, New York, Salad Essentials are the perfect addition to sprinkle over a salad to add flavor and texture to America’s favorite side dish. For a change of pace, add Salad Essentials to green beans, steamed broccoli, or sautéed cauliflower.
