Preparing a nutritious, no-fuss salad is easier than ever these days, thanks to the recent rollout of Distinctively Dole premium salad kits from Monterey, Calif.-based Dole Fresh Vegetables, a subsidiary of Dole Food Co. Available in six varieties, including Southwest Salad, Asian Island Crunch, Hearty Italian, and Ultimate Caesar, and containing gourmet toppings and proprietary dressings, the kits can be served as a lunch option, a dinner side dish, or as an entree to which consumers can add meat or seafood to create a full meal. A salad kit retails for a suggested $3.99. To learn more, call v.p. of marketing Ronda Reed at (831) 641-4279.
