Salads

Mediterranean Pearled Couscous Salad

This versatile summer salad makes excellent use of the abundance of fresh cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and herbs coming out of local farms and gardens this time of year. It can be prepared in advance, served warm or chilled, and results in a perfectly healthy lunch, light supper, or side dish. It’s also very flexible in that you can substitute just about any veggies and herbs that you happen to have on hand, so consider this a general template and feel free to get creative! You’ll find bulk organic pearled couscous featured in the Weekly Sale from August 11th – 17th, so it’s a perfect time to give this dish a try!

This version offers a riff on the Buddha bowl and you’ll find many of the ingredients featured in our Weekly Sale from June 23rd – 29th. There’s a lot of room for creativity in this dish, so feel free to use this as a rough framework and include your favorite seasonal veggies! 

Marinated Zucchini Salad

Looking for a new way to enjoy zucchini? This six-ingredient recipe offers a simple way to prepare this versatile veggie without even needing to heat up your kitchen. Our weekly sale from June 9th – 15th features organic zucchini along with a handful of other items that are perfect for a picnic, potluck, or a simple no-cook meal at home, so it’s a perfect time to give this dish a try! This dish will keep for a day or two, but it is best served just after the herbs are added.

Beet & Citrus Salad

Beets, citrus, and walnuts are a classic trio that come together beautifully in this winter salad. You’ll find many of the ingredients in our weekly sale from January 2nd – 8th, so it’s a great time to give it a try.
