Four Salads We'd Rather Eat

By Hannah Jastram, Communications Associate

While the New York Times seems to think grape salad evokes Minnesota at Thanksgiving, we — and many other folks — beg to differ. Here are four salads that speak more directly to our heritage, our wallets, and our taste buds:
  1. Apple Spinach Salad (321 K PDF) — Use the sweet and tart, made-in-Minnesota Zestar!® apple with a hint of brown sugar flavoring for this zingy salad.
  2. Apple Waldorf Salad  — A classic. Use Honeycrisp or SweeTango® apples.
  3. Broccoli Mandarin Orange Salad — 'Tis the season for citrus fruits, and you can get a can of mandarin oranges even cheaper!
  4. Sunshine Salad (302 K PDF) — Let's be honest, we need all the sunshine we can get this time of year.
What's your favorite fall salad?
