Fresh greens are a mom’s best friend. In fact, most days my preferred lunch is a big green salad. It’s an easy, nutritious lunch that helps me feel good about how I’m eating. And, often, it’s a regular party in the mouth.

While homegrown lettuces are best, not all of us have been able to swing that. Often, a bag of mixed greens is a simple convenience to throw in the grocery cart.

Fresh Express, a salad company, has now developed an online Leaf Locator which tracks nearly50 million bags of lettuce and spinach each month sold in 24,000 grocery stores nationwide.” It’s one way this produce company is making efforts to communicate with their clients.

Even if you don’t have a bag of salad in the fridge, you can test out the Leaf Locator as well as find a variety of recipes that feature that lettuce blend. The Fresh Express site also provides helpful background to how the salads are grown, mixed, and delivered. You can even enter to win a year’s worth of salad! I was pleasantly surprised to see all that their site holds.

Want to win some salad this week?

**10 readers will each win 2 coupons for free Fresh Express salad.**

Simply tell us your favorite way to enjoy greens in the comment section below.

Contest will be open until Sunday, April 25th at 8 pm, PST. Winner to be chosen at random and announced next week.

This giveaway is now closed. Congrats toΒ jkseiler@, spendless2savemore@, calmyra@, robert.cross22@, calliope050502@, devo62680@, cookingluck29@, teach014@, momoemail55-cl@, katerw13@

  222. Our family’s motto: Everything is better with CHEESE!

  223. My husband and I enjoy just about any type of salad, especially one with grilled chicken. Our daughter, on the other hand, will eat many of the toppings but not lettuce. We really hope she grows to like salads like we do.

  224. Spinach with sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, sliced mushrooms and balsamic vinaigrette – yum!

  226. oh, yeah, baby- with turkey, bacon, swiss cheese, and poppyseed dressing!!!

  227. I love baby spinach in a salad with cheese, sunflower kernels, maybe some dried fruit, maybe some bacon bits and a homemade dressing.

  228. straight from the garden with a bit of vinegar/powdered sugar mixed together, strange, but something mom always made to top the greens!

  229. I like dark greens with fruit – dried cranberries or mandarin oranges and cheese- blue or goat

  230. I like salads with fruit as one of the toppings – like raisins or craisins or mandarin oranges. Yummy. Also add lots of cheese and some sliced almonds. πŸ™‚

  231. I love fresh greens a different way each time – lots of fixings, or nice and simple.

  232. We love the garden salads and the plain lettuce and spinach salads. My daughter and I both love having them as a side with our meals.
