We’re a lotta weeks into this stay-at-home situation. Have you finished Netflix? Emptied Hulu? Drained Amazon Prime? This is the week you put your binge-watching knowledge to good use. “Wait? Isn’t it still Salad Month? Shouldn’t we have a Salad Sunday this week?” Of course it is and we do.
But first, we need to know – what have you been binge-watching? Maybe Tiger King or Ozark? How about Community, Mindhunter, Dead to Me, Russian Doll? Perhaps Daredevil, Jessica Jones, High Fidelity, Shrill, Handmaid’s Tale, or Letterkenny? Or maybe The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Fleabag, Bosch, Catastrophe, or One Mississippi? There. Are. So. Many. Shows.
Tell Us What You’re Binge Watching and We’ll Make a Salad from It
So, for this week’s spin on salad genius, we bring you the #SaladSunday Challenge, Episode 2, in which we challenge this week’s earnest salad lover, our friend Chef Daniela Gerson, to make a salad version of someone’s favorite TV series binge. Will it be your favorite?
On Sunday, May 17th at 4pm Pacific, Chef Daniela will be on Instagram, making a salad based on someone’s binge-watch guilty pleasure. Tell us what you’re watching in comments on the appropriate post on Facebook or Instagram by Thursday (5/14) and we’ll choose a fun-yet-funny-yet-challenging show for her to riff with. Then don’t forget to tune in to Instagram at 4pm Pacific on 5/17 for this week’s #SaladSunday.

Grow Your Own Organic Salad Greens
We’re still working on our little windowsill farmette. If you started at the same time with us, great. If not, you can start any time with these simple directions and videos. We only do it organic, of course. Because we love lots of ingredients in our salad…but not GMOs, synthetic fertilizers, or the 700 other things that aren’t allowed in organic farming.
