Southwestern Chopped Salad

June 5th, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed. 

Is it shallow to admit we think the world would be a better, kinder place, if only for more Complete Salad Kits? The time savings, the actual food savings (no waste!), the sheer convenience of having everything you need to make an entire meal in a single bag… for us, this is life changing, life affirming, and makes us want to be better human beings. If that makes us shallow, well, pass the salad bowl, would you?

Inside each bag of Trader Joe’s Southwestern Chopped Salad you’ll find chopped green cabbage and Romaine lettuce, along with carrots, radishes, green onions, and a bit of cilantro. Also in the bag (in separate pouches) are roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and crumbled cotija cheese. Toss everything together with the included spicy avocado dressing, and you are good to go. An entire meal, fortuitously forkable, in a bag. Want an even heartier meal, with almost no additional work? Quickly chop some Grilled Chicken Strips and one of our Teeny Tiny Avocados. If you’re bent on working harder for your dinner, serve Southwestern Chopped Salad as a first course or side dish with our Southwestern Quesadillas.

We’re selling each 13.6 ounce bag of Trader Joe’s Southwestern Chopped Salad for $2.99*, a fortuitously fabulous price for this life-enhancing Complete Salad Kit. You’ll find it in our refrigerated produce case.
