My husband has a weird salad habit. He will stand in front of the fridge and eat a handful of spinach or arugula. No dressing, nothing but the greens. I thought he was alone in his habit until I caught my youngest son doing the same thing this week. While the habit is a little strange, I love that my family enjoys eating greens and salad. I try to encourage their salad eating as much as I can so I was excited when I was given the chance to try and review Fresh Express salads through Moms Meet.
So what did I think of the salad? My local Target only had a few varieties, spinach and spring greens. I tried both. The spring greens I used as a salad. It was delicious with homemade salad and stayed fresh in the fridge easily. For the spinach I decided to make a smoothie. Here is my recipe:
- One frozen banana
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter/almond butter
- dash of cinnamon
- 1 cup of spinach
My youngest loved the smoothie. I was worried that he would be put off by the green color, but it turned out he thought it looked like something a superhero would drink, so win for me! I thought the salads stayed fresh and worked well for my family's needs. The only thing I would change would have them more readily available in my area. The closest Target with food to us is an hour away, which is a ways to go for salad. I hope that in the future Fresh Express will expand into other grocery chains.
