SAN JUAN BAUTISTA (PRWEB) December 16, 2011
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the debut of packaged salads, Earthbound Farm is giving organic salad lovers the gift of the eCookbook, “Salads for Every Season: 25 Recipes from Earthbound Farm” by Myra Goodman, available for free download through December 31, 2011. The culinary compilation contains 83 pages of seasonal salad recipes from Myra’s first two cookbooks, “Food To Live By” (Workman, 2006) and “The Earthbound Cook” (Workman, 2010).
Back in 1986, Earthbound Farm co-founders, Drew and Myra Goodman, began washing and bagging a week’s worth of greens to ensure they had access to a fresh salad every night. When a cancelled order from a local chef prompted the entrepreneurs to sell fresh organic spring mix at retail, pre-washed packaged salads were born. Twenty-five years later, produce departments across the country prominently feature assorted fresh packaged salads for health-conscious consumers, making salad a simple and accessible option on a daily basis.
“Salads for Every Season: 25 Recipes from Earthbound Farm” by Myra Goodman is available for free digital download at the following online retailers until December 31, 2011, when the price will go up to $2.99:
