SALADAY: The gift of healthy food

We all lead busy lives. And sometimes it’s difficult to take time for a healthy, nutritious lunch, isn’t it? At DFW Aquaponics Farms, we understand that all too well!

And we offer a solution. One day a week, you can have that healthy lunch delivered right to your door. You don’t have to go out; you don’t even have to take the time think about what you want! It’s as simple as signing up on a monthly basis for our “lunch club.”Every week, when SALADAY rolls around — Monday, Tuesday, SALADAY — you can work right through the lunch hour, take your lunch with you to a meeting, enjoy a day at the park with the kids, or catch up on paperwork and projects at home.

Whatever it is that’s keeping you busy just got easier as you enjoy a hearty, nutritious salad loaded with the great flavors of our naturally grown lettuce, other greens and fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.Every salad is hearty, wholesome and nutritionally balanced with seasonal ingredients; sometimes they include grains, nuts, crumbled cheese or other toppings. Your salad box comes with dressing on the side and utensils. You can also add salmon, tuna or chicken.  And we are happy to accommodate vegan diets and special requests with advance notice.  We’ll include a bottle of water and a sweet treat (a freshly-baked cookie, muffin or a slice of pound cake), or order only the salad.20171129_094920What could be sweeter than that?

Our fresh salad lunches are a great idea for “Secret Santa” gifts or for a holiday office party or special holiday luncheon at your home or school. (For large groups, ask about special pricing on a salad bowl that will serve 8-10 as part of a potluck meal.)

Standard delivery is to addresses in Burleson only. However, during December, we’ll deliver to locations within 10 miles; call 214-662-9767 to discuss your needs, or email saladay@dfwaquaponicsfarms.org.

Wednesday, December 6 – Light, Fresh and Delicious

Who needs a heavy lunch? Especially now, between Thanksgiving and Christmas, a selection of our crisp, light salad greens topped with the fresh goodness of naturally-grown veggies and oh-so-good fruit is a real treat. We’re serving this one with traditional Organic French dressing, a topping of mixed nuts on the side, and a delicious muffin. Sound good? We think so!

Wednesday, December 13 – Simply Full of Natural Flavor!

A heaping serving of our mixed lettuces, heightened with tri-color pasta, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, tiny green beans, chopped purple onion and Italian parsley. This one’s totally natural; simple, colorful, flavorful, filling and delicious! Traditional Italian dressing on the side, along with cheese bread in lieu of a sweet cookie.

In addition to our beautiful lettuce, we’re adding rainbow chard, sliced radish, multi-colored sweet peppers, green peas and purple cabbage, along with sliced bamboo shoots, green onions and chopped fresh cilantro. Honey mustard dressing and blanched, slivered almonds add unique flavor to this unique salad that draws on many cultural traditions. Along with a special cookie, it’s a holiday treat!

Wednesday, December 27 – Simply Satisfying

To end the year in style, we’re bringing back one of our favorites: Red lentils join English cucumber, grape tomatoes, diced sweet onion, chopped fresh parsley and sliced Kalamata olives. On the side: a light garlic herb vinaigrette, and a bit of crumbled herb cheese. Happy New Year!
