Eco Eats: Green's 100 Mile Salad
By August 27, 2008 10:01 AM
Green Fine Salad Co.
has always tossed fresh, interesting, and healthy salads, but now, with the 100 Mile Salad
, you can eat local too. All of the salad's ingredients--Rocco's Farm
red leaf and butter lettuce, cucumber, white onion, heirloom tomatoes, Olathe Mountain
corn, herb-rubbed croutons, Haystack Mountain
feta, and Palisade Peach
vinaigrette--are grown or produced within 100 miles of Denver. According to co-owner Laurie Nassif
, this salad will remain on Green's menu indefinitely, though the make-up will change to reflect what's available seasonally.
