5 Steps to Build a Nutritious and Delicious Salad
Many people hesitate to eat salads regularly because of the idea that they have to look or taste a certain way. While salads can have an unfortunate misconception of being boring, that’s far from the truth. Keeping a few tips in mind can help you create a salad bursting with flavor and nutrients.
Tips & Tricks
Skip the Fridge
Tomatoes keep best when stored at room temperature and out of direct sunlight. They’ll store between five days to two weeks but are always best when eaten quickly.
At NatureSweet, we only pick peppers at their best, meaning firm, brightly colored peppers with tight skin that are heavy for their size. No dull, shriveled or pitted peppers allowed.
Look for the Food ID QR code underneath your packaging to trace your tomatoes right back to the greenhouse that grew and nurtured them.
Our 10oz & 16.5oz packages are recyclable. Please recycle our packaging to give it a second (or third) life. All of our snacking tomato packages are sustainably made of 100% recycled Polyethylene terephthalate (PET).
Slicing Small Tomatoes
Lay your tomatoes beneath a flat plate, tray, or lid to easily slice a bunch horizontally at once.
Rinse in Pack
Give your tomatoes a quick rinse before slicing or eating. Many of our packages have small holes to act as a built-in colander for easy rinses in cool running water.
