Eco Eats: Green's 100 Mile Salad


August 27 2008, 11:01 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. 1137 16th St., 303-279-0173 and 110 16th St., 303-629-9127
