Chef’s Tips:

Romaine lettuce is perfect for March salads. It’s hearty, sturdy, and perfectly crunchy — try it today!

Once you make your own salad dressing, you’ll never go back to packaged versions. This fresh and bright dressing is also way lower in sugar, sodium, and fat than almost any dressing you’d find in the store.

Mix up the flavors with different kinds of jam and vinegar. Try pairing seedless strawberry jam with balsamic vinegar, or apricot jam with cider vinegar. The possibilities are endless!
