     Premium Salad Blends are three different salad blends that include the
 most popular lettuces, baby greens and spinach with complimentary toppings
 like slivered almonds, walnuts, dried cranberries, garlic croutons and real
 shredded cheeses.  Serving great salads just got easier.  Simply open the bag,
 sprinkle on the toppings and add dressing.  Mollie Katzen, best-selling
 cookbook author encourages consumers to try their hand at creating their own
 dressings.  "Just be sure to choose monounsaturated oils -- the 'healthy oils'
 -- like olive or walnut," she says.  "They have been shown to help reduce the
 risk of heart disease."
     You can enjoy Premium Salad Blends - Everything but the Dressing as a
 light meal, appetizer or side dish, but they can also be served as a creative
 and ready-to-use base for any number of delicious entree salads.  It's as
 simple as opening the bag, sprinkling on the toppings and adding a homemade or
 bottled dressing.
     Premium Salad Blends - Everything but the Dressing come in three
 varieties:  Spring Mix with Cranberries & Walnuts, Baby Spinach Salad with
 Cranberries & Almonds, and Romaine & Radicchio Salad with Parmesan-Romano &
 Garlic Croutons.
