Read the radio script:
It’s October – when it seems that pumpkin patches are everywhere. Rather than wait for some great pumpkin-thing to happen, why not have a salad?
This is Matt Sloan of Trader Joe’s. Our love of pumpkin runs deep. Sure, we have Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Coffee, Pumpkin Ice Cream…. We also have the Harvest Blend – a complete salad.
Harvest Blend is a salad-in-a-bag kit with baby kale, spring mix, and radicchio. Additional veggie crunch comes from shredded carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli. Raisins and dates add chewy sweetness.
And here’s the pumpkin pitch: roasted pumpkin seeds and pumpkin cornbread croutons—and the whole thing is tied together with a sweet, tangy pumpkin vinaigrette.
Each 14-ounce bag is enough for about four side-salads, a great pumpkin value to celebrate, all season long. You’ll find it in our refrigerated produce case.
Thanks for listening.
