Thread: Italian bagged salad

  1. #1
    Julie Bove Guest

    Default Italian bagged salad

    When did they change this? I can't remember what the brand is and not all
    stores carry it. Used to be a mix of some kind of green leaves and red
    leaves. But now? It's Romaine and purple cabbage. It's just so not the
    same!

    she didn't like the original. Then they changed it and she realized she must
    have like the original, because she doesn't like the new version.

    Her daughter hated the both of them.

    It sounds like it has radicchio, not purple cabbage, probably.

    Both are fine for both of us but I prefer the original.

    What brand are you talking about? It's pretty easy to figure out what
    the components are via the internet... or do you just use it to shop
    and post to usenet?

    Cabbage is more likely native to Italy than elsewhere.

    Why not save money and mix your own greens?

    I don't know because I don't have any and we couldn't find it at the last
    two stores we shopped at. This is what I remembered buying, but I can't
    swear that it was that brand. Clearly there is arugula in there.

    What we bought has shredded purple cabbage in it. Let me look some more and
    see if I can find it.

    Here it is!

    Romaine and red cabbage! Daughter loves this but it's just wrong!

    That wouldn't save me money. I can't eat much salad. Daughter eats it
    maybe 2-3 times a week. If I have to buy two different kinds of greens,
    we'll never eat them all before they go bad!

    I've seen that one and not bought it because of the weird cabbage
    component. I guess they use red cabbage because it's cheaper than
    radicchio and the color is right - but it's not a mix that appeals to
    me either. Why not buy it just for your DD since she likes it so
    much? You can always eat something else.

    That would make too much sense. She's so terribly busy taking her
    daughter to/from dance and eating at restaurants. She wouldn't have
    time to buy and tear her own salad greens.

    I do buy it for her when I can find it. But she can't usually eat two bags
    in a week so that leaves a serving or two for me. I'll eat it but I prefer
    something else.
