Spring is here! We’re jumping in fork-first with these four salads as an ode to our Organic Spring Mix: the unique blend of tender baby greens that started it all. Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix can make a mouthwatering salad with the addition of your favorite ingredients.
Earthbound Farm popularized Spring Mix and made it accessible by washing and bagging fresh greens and selling them at markets. If you could time travel back to the early 80s, you’d see that salad most often meant some iceberg lettuce with a couple of tomatoes and a fair amount of dressing. But then came 1986 when Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix, prewashed in a cute bag, started showing up on grocery store shelves. We were the first to successfully launch packaged salad in retail stores and it was a revelation to have all these beautiful colors and delicious flavors in a bag of salad greens all ready to use. This moment launched the popularity of Spring Mix and truly changed the meaning of salad.
Today, we share a bit of that freshness with everyone: you can buy our signature Organic Spring Mix nationwide. Learn more about how our Organic Spring Mix started in this blog post! Our Organic Spring Mix combines a unique blend of greens to create a balanced flavor that’ll leave you wanting more.
Not sure what to make to welcome in Spring? It’s easy! Our favorite salads call for Organic Spring Mix, fresh or dried fruit, nuts for crunch, and cheese. Use whatever you have on hand or try one of these tried-and-true combinations:

Strawberry-Tarragon Salad with Aged Balsamic Vinegar
