Whether prompted by thoughts of four-leaf clovers, dancing leprechauns, or budding trees and bright green lawns…the month of March and the promise of Spring spur cravings for crisp, fresh flavors…and the color green!
Flavors that not only taste like Spring… but look like Spring as well!
And there’s nothing that does this better than a beautifully composed plating of bright, leafy greens chock full of fresh flavors…beautifully hued in what else but varied tones of green to make a real statement!
Stemilt’s Granny Smith apple is the perfect partner in this Spring greens salad, offering a tart pop of fresh crunch and delicious, lemon-tinged flavor that plays beautifully with the light, lemon-parsley vinaigrette and definitely wakes the palate to the promise of the season. Thinly sliced and artfully nestled throughout the salad, these pops of bright, fruity flavor appear like luminescent ribbons…trimmed in green, delicate, pretty and perfectly delicious. Adding to this verdantly green plating are slices of celery, green onion, and brussel sprouts; bits of parsley; juicy halves of seedless green grapes and thin shavings of fennel. And to cap the crunch: chopped pistachios…the perfect pop of subtle green crunch.
Nothing marches you as happily into Spring like the crunch, color and captivating flavor of Stemilt’s Granny Smith apple…a flavor as satisfying as finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow!
