It’s crunchy, slightly peppery, and full of bold, delicious flavor. Packed with various nutrients and vitamins, this salad mix is hydrating and healthy.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
The Super Salad Mix makes for a wonderfully light and refreshing salad—perfect for hot days! Try this very easy, light, citrusy, but still filling recipe:
- Make a vinaigrette by whisking together balsamic vinegar (try this one by Fattoria Estense), extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, and salt.
- In a bowl, put in your Super Salad Mix, some grated carrots, and halved cherry tomatoes.
- Drizzle a little of the vinaigrette on your salad (just enough to coat), and toss together.
- Sprinkle some shaved Parmegiano-Reggiano, and crushed walnuts on top.
- Drizzle a little more vinaigrette. Serve.
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.
