National Salad Month Giveaway

Giveaway time! This one is only open to New Englanders, but if you are eligible to enter, it is a good one!

First, I am a little late to the game to mention that May is National Salad Month, but I have been celebrating almost daily. I even entered a few photos of my favorite salads in Sabrina’s I Love Salad Challenge.

Today’s lunch salad was tossed together after I got home from the Basho launch party, and it took me about 10 minutes from start to finish. I tossed broccoli and grape tomatoes in some olive oil and crushed red pepper and roasted them together for 10 minutes.

Broccoli and Tomato Salad  

In the meantime, I rinsed a can of pinto beans and chopped up a bunch of cilantro. Once the roasted components had cooled, I mixed in the beans and cilantro. Voila! A nutritious salad filled with fiber and protein, not to mention lots of vitamins and antioxidants! I LOVE cilantro, so the huge amount of flavor that it brought to the dish, along with the spice of the pepper, made me very happy. Next time I will add roasted corn and maybe a squeeze of lime juice. Yum.

Now for the giveaway details! Olivia’s Organics, an awesome company based in Chelsea, MA, has agreed to give 5 Travel Eat Love readers 5 coupons each for free Olivia’s salads.  Olivia’s just launched a new product, Single-To-Go-Salads which incorporate their organic lettuces with a packet of dressing, making a fresh salad on the go an easier option. Here is a bit of info about Olivia’s from their website.

Family.

Can you think of a more powerful word? All over the world, being part of a family is what makes the difference between living and merely existing.

Family is about loving, caring, protecting, nurturing. It’s about making our homes safe and happy and beautiful – and our planet too.

At Olivia’s Organics, family is a one-word mission statement. Because it not only says who we are. It says why we do what we do, and who we do it for. It sets our goals and defines our responsibilities to others.

We first embarked on this business 70 years ago when Olivia’s great grandfather Giovanni sold celery hearts out of a produce stall in Faneuil Hall. Today, Olivia’s Organics continues that tradition by providing only the freshest organic tender leaf lettuces for our salads. Olivia’s Organics’ salads are the freshest organic salads on the market!

Early on, we learned that one of the first rules of organic farming is to give back to the earth. We practice this our own way by investing in the lives of the children who live in the communities where our salads are sold. Therefore, a percentage of our proceeds go directly to the Olivia’s Organics Charitable Foundation. Through the Foundation, we support community-based children’s charities in the regions where our are products are sold.

We find the more we give, the more we enjoy. And that’s the wonderful part about living the Olivia’s Organics life. It’s great, wholesome fun.

Welcome to Olivia’s Organics.

Eat Healthy! Have Fun! Give Back!

    I love Olivia’s! I’d like to try the Tangy Spinach blend – I’ve never seen it in my local store and it sounds interesting – maybe with an orange vinaigrette, dried cranberries, and goat cheese.

    I just got some 50/50 mix (spinach and spring mix). I chopped it and mixed it with cous cous and chickpeas for a light spring lunch!

    I love their packaging and products.
