From shaved artisan parmesan cheese to grilled all-white meat chicken strips, just one bite of Bonduelle’s Fresh Picked™ Gourmet Entrée Salad will transport you to your favorite dining experience. Marked by premium ingredients and a nod to time-tested recipes, Bonduelle Fresh Picked™ Gourmet Entrée Salads elevate an otherwise ordinary chef’s salad into a Spanish Inspired Chef Salad with Smoked Ham, or a side salad into an Apple Walnut Baby Greens Salad with Quinoa.
“The extension of the Bonduelle brand with the new Bonduelle Fresh Picked™ Gourmet Entrée Salads was the perfect opportunity to take what we’re known for – fresh, convenient salads on-the-go – and take it up a notch to appeal to a consumer looking for something beyond the familiar,” said Bonduelle Fresh Americas Vice President of Marketing, Priscila Stanton. “We wanted to challenge the status quo of prepared salads to bring a bit of indulgence to our recipes with premium ingredients you won’t find in other ready-to-eat salads, such as Manzanilla Spanish green olives, shaved aged parmesan or crispy cornbread crumble.”
Each Bonduelle Fresh Picked™ Gourmet Entrée Salad comes ready-to-eat (and customizable) with flavorful toppings separated for optimum freshness, crunch and taste with a bed of fresh greens, such as baby greens, romaine or arugula. Dressings such as apple cider vinaigrette and creamy avocado make for an irresistible combination.
Additionally, the square bowl features the Fresh Air Seal™ process, which extends the shelf life of the salads without preservatives, so they stay fresher longer, allowing health-conscious shoppers the confidence to stock up for the week in just one grocery trip.
Fresh Picked Gourmet Entrée Salads are now available in the produce aisle of Albertsons, Safeway, Vons and Pavilions stores on the West Coast with plans to expand distribution nationally. The salads are available in five varieties:
- Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken Strips
- Spanish Inspired Chef Salad with Smoked Ham
- Sonora Inspired Salad with Seasoned Grilled Chicken
- Steak & Bleu Chopped Salad
- Apple Walnut Baby Greens Salad with Quinoa
The nutritional value of the salads ranges from 250 to 490 calories, with 8 to 20 grams of protein depending on flavor. For more information, please visit http://www.bonduellefreshpicked.com.
