Sweet and earthy
This blend from Future Fresh consists of carefully selected Baby Kale leaves, and various Salanova lettuce varieties. It’s fresh, delicious, and healthy.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
A vibrant combination of delicious greens, the Power Salad Mix has a nutty, earthy flavor, and is packed with anti-oxidants.
The tenderness of the baby kale, paired with the crunch from the Salanova lettuce, gives you a great texture. The sweetness from the lettuce, and slight bitterness from the kale leaves offer a perfect balance of flavor.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
The Future Fresh Power Salad Mix makes for an incredible base, matching any combination you put it with. Try this sweet and salty, and very simple one:
- Make a strawberry vinaigrette by blending together strawberries, apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- Toss Power Salad Mix, sliced strawberries, and halved cherry tomatoes together in a serving bowl.
- Add in tuyo flakes, toasted walnuts, and crumbled or shaved Manchego cheese.
- Lightly drizzle your homemade strawberry vinaigrette over the salad.
THE FUTURE OF FARMING
Future Fresh is a proudly Filipino venture, created out of frustration for the less than stellar quality of produce found on local supermarket shelves. The company specializes in locally-grown produce, and prides itself on their completely fresh vegetables. This is because they harvest just before dispatch, reducing travel time, and ensuring a longer shelf life.
These gamechangers built farm systems with controlled environment that result in hydroponically-grown, pesticide-free greens. Everything they provide is guaranteed high in quality, high in nutrients, and always completely fresh.
Your fresh produce will be stored in a resealable plastic ziplock bag. You will notice that there is air inside and this maintains a sort of internal atmosphere to keep your fresh produce in good condition.
Once opened, the produce will begin to age. The best way to keep it fresh for longer once opened is to keep it moisture-free.
Future Fresh produce have no wilted leaves or roots that may cause decay, so you need only wash them before cooking or consuming. With produce with high water content, like fresh rocket arugula, you can remove the excess moisture that might accumulate by lining the storage bag with a paper towel and resealing the bag again. Make sure to check on it mid-week, and replace the paper towel once it takes in too much moisture.
Done properly, this method can help your produce last to about a week max after opening of bag.
