GoodLeaf Farms has launched a new “Dressing Optional” line of microgreens and baby greens salad mixes designed to be flavourful even without the addition of dressing.

The company has introduced two additional new blends of its greens that deliver “big taste with a punch of nutritional goodness,” and are designed to elevate salads and main dishes.

“Microgreens and baby greens have all of the flavour of their adult plant counterparts, said Cheryl Verbiski, vice-president, Commercial, at GoodLeaf Farms. “Finding the right blend produces a mouth-watering food experience – without compromising on the health benefits that come with a product that could pack as much as 40 times the nutritional value as a mature plant.”

The product line includes three mixes:

Spring Mix — The original mix, this is a blend of young, tender lettuces with Kick’n Micro mustard Hero Greens. GoodLeaf Farms notes it is an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin K, and a source of vitamin C.

Sweet & Spicy Mix — Sweet and tender fresh pea shoots on a bed of crisp lettuce and finished with a hint of radish. This blend is an excellent source of vitamin K and a good source of vitamin A.

Four Seasons Mix — Bright crisp lettuce, with the mild, earthy flavour of broccoli and a touch of heat from mustard microgreens. This medley is an excellent source of vitamin K and a good source of vitamin A.

Produce used in the new mixes is grown in GoodLeaf’s indoor farms across Canada, without the use of pesticides, herbicides or fungicides.
