We are proud of our variety of salads that present both traditional and new creative recipes. Available selections vary throughout the season and the year.
Black bean & quinoa
The influences of South America come together in this robust little salad, that is an excellent source of protein. So hearty, it can easily make a very satisfying meal.
Many of us have been at a family gathering at which this salad has been the focal point. The combination of green, kidney, wax and garbanzo beans or chickpeas give this classic – staying power!
From late spring to early fall, the bright green colours of fresh organic salads grace the shelves of our fridges, thanks to the efforts of local farmers near Ste-Anne, Manitoba. These salad greens are also available in bulk for purchase to take and make at home.
Pasta salad with an Asian twist. The rice-shaped noodles and toasted sesame seeds are the basis of this flavourful salad which is combined with diced red and green peppers, as well as onion. A saucy sweet and sour dressing captivates the taste buds!
wild rice citrus
Want to know what our house favourite is? This is it! Cooked wild rice is paired with cranberries, peppers and a fresh citrus dressing. The result is a light, delicious, good for you – main or side.
