10 oz – These summer jewels add a punch of color and fantastic flavor to many recipes. Create a fresh, flavorful salsa to serve over grilled meats, add to pasta dishes, or enjoy them in our recipe for Blistered Tomato and Watercress Salad.

A low-calorie source of folic acid and potassium, asparagus is packed with nutrients! One of the most versatile veggies, it's excellent added to pizza, omelets, salads or soups. Or serve alongside your favorite entrée. It can be steamed, boiled, roasted, grilled and paired with fish, chicken, pork or steak – take your pick! 
 
Easy Almond Asparagus
2 lb fresh asparagus
1/4 c butter
1/4 c slivered, blanched almonds
1 T lemon juice
1/2 t salt

Cook asparagus in boiling, salted water until tender but not mushy. Drain. Melt butter in saucepan. Add almonds, cook until golden (6 to 7 min). Remove from heat. Add lemon juice and salt. Mix and serve. 
Think Pink!
 
Grown in Washington, these pink beauties are a natural cross between Golden Delicious and Lady Williams varieties. With a distinctive sugar/acid balance, Pink Ladies taste both tangy and sweet. Tightly packed cells make them firm with a long storage life and help them stay bright white when sliced. 
 
Try shredding Pink Lady apples into traditional recipes to provide extra moisture and flavor. Simply add one apple to cornbread or spice cake mix, reducing standard liquid by 1 to 2 T. Enjoy!
 
 

Seedless, easy-to-peel Mandarin oranges add a splash of color to seafood dishes and salads. They also make a sensational snack!

Loaded with antioxidant-rich vitamin C, these beauties help neutralize free radicals in the body. They also contain a healthy dose of calcium for bone strength and beta-carotene, which supports eye health and the immune system.

Go online and try our recipe for Chicken Seychelles, a flavorful South African dish that features Mandarin oranges and savory spices for a satisfying meal. Or peel and add sweet segments to fresh, leafy greens.

 
The queen of greens, kale packs a nutritional punch. Low in calories and high in fiber, this beneficial veggie boasts many benefits. Iron transports oxygen to the body, while vitamin K supports bone health. Its naturally occurring antioxidant properties protect against free radicals, while vitamin C boosts the immune system. And that’s not all! Kale is also high in calcium, protein, vitamin A and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. 
 
In addition to being good for you, kale is great in pasta dishes, salads or simply sautéed in olive oil with chopped red onions and a spritz of lemon for a sensational side.
 
Choose Purple, Green or Lacianto, also known as Italian or Dinosaur Kale.
