Seasonal Salad Box

Seasonal Salad Box

The beauty of salads, Chef Jamie Simpson from the Culinary Vegetable Institute shares, is that the farmer has already done nearly all the work for you. When enjoying fresh salad ingredients that were regeneratively farmed and harvested at the peak of ripeness with love at The Chef’s Garden, you benefit from the maximum in flavor and nutrition. Salads can serve as a mouth-watering main entrée or the perfect side dish, and you can add different seasonal ingredients each time to make your salad a uniquely wonderful taste experience. 

They are a perfect prep ahead meal to take to work or school. You can also use salad greens to stretch leftovers into a filling and nourishing meal. 

SSalads are packed with phytonutrients (including antioxidants), vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They are a great way to increase your intake of vitamins A,C,E, folate, and K and to support a healthy gut microbiome. The high fiber and lower carbohydrate content of this nutrient dense box may help to stabilize blood sugar following a meal and our bitter greens may help to improve digestion by stimulating your own digestive juices.  

To retain the most nutrients from these vegetables it is best to eat them raw, blanched, or lightly sauteed.

Exactly what’s included in each of our salad boxes will vary by season, but they’ll always be perfectly curated with just the right amount of farm fresh greens and other veggies. 

This box contains vegetables for two for approximately one week. 

Additional discounts cannot be applied to subscription orders.  

Vegetables

Shipping this week:

  • Lettuce
  • Arugula
  • Kale
  • Fall Radish
  • Spinach
  • Salad Sensation
  • Beets
  • Carrots

You may have noticed your lettuce and greens look and feel a little different. That's because we have moved them indoors to our greenhouse "still soil grown" to protect them from the Ohio elements. They have the same great flavor and nutrients but are a little less sturdy.  Hope you enjoy them just the same!

Nutrient Dense

At The Chef’s Garden nutrition goes hand-in-hand with flavorful, quality vegetables. It is so important that in 2019, we opened an on-site agricultural research facility. We study how to maximize the flavor, color and nutrition of our vegetables in order to bring the highest quality to your door. 

As a result of our regenerative farming practices, we have found that our products can contain up to 200 to 500% more mineral content than the USDA average! Learn more about our Health and Wellness initiatives.
