Moms (and kids) LOVE #saladswap from #FreshExpress


Fresh Express is the market leader in delivering great-tasting, nutritious, fresh products to health-conscious people like you and me.  I was thrilled to  host a sampling party with my Moms' group as a Moms Meet Ambassador. There is such a great selection of Fresh Express out there -you'll find something for everyone! We love that they are pre-washed and kept it "Keep-Crisp"breathable bags to preserve freshness. They also have a special USDA-Certified Organic line! The kits can be found at Target stores and other major market across the US. The kits range in price from $2-$4 per bag.





 We talked about the new swap challenge that Fresh Express is running. The flavorful recipes help to cut back our calorie intake daily!












The Fresh Express 30-Day Salad Swap lets you recreate some of your favorite higher calorie foods, like cheesy pizza and creamy pasta, in lower calorie salads. Swap one meal a day for a month and you'll  feel better and you'll earn money-saving coupons along the way. 

The site inspired us to try out a few swaps of our own.

When you want this....1000+ calories!

Grilled Cheese: 730 Calories
Spring Mix with Grilled Cheese Croutons: 230 Calories
Serves 4

Ingredients

Salad Ingredients:
1 bag Fresh Express Spring Mix
4 slices sprouted-whole grain bread (you can also use whole wheat bread)
4 slices (4 oz) of reduced-fat cheddar
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in extra virgin olive oil, drained and rinsed, chopped
spray butter (2 second spray)
Dressing:
1/3 cup your favorite lite balsamic vinaigrette

Instructions

For the croutons:
1. Place two slices of cheese on a slice of bread. Top cheese with another slice of bread to form a sandwich. Repeat to form another sandwich.
2. Then, spray both outer slices with spray butter.
3. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add sandwich. Cook until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes, and then flip and cook another 3-5 minutes.
4. When finished, carefully place the grilled cheese on a cutting board and let it rest for approximately 5 minutes.
5. Then, carefully cut off the crust. Discard the crust and cut the grilled cheese into large dices (the size of a crouton).
For the salad:
1. Place greens and sundried tomatoes in a bowl.
2. Toss with vinaigrette.
3. When dressing is fully incorporated, portion into 4 salad bowls. Top each salad with grilled cheese croutons.
