Cascade Cuts salad bowl

In the floral department

It can’t get fresher than lettuce harvested minutes before your meal. Grown by Cascade Cuts near Bellingham, Wash., these bowls just need a sunny spot, occasional watering and well-timed harvesting to provide you with weeks of fresh salad ingredients. The mix of greens varies by the bowl.

Wild Alaskan halibut

In the meat & seafood department

Moist and flaky, fresh, wild Alaskan halibut is a delicious way to enjoy the flavors of springtime. It’s meaty but tender, and mild enough to use in a variety of cuisines. Naturally lean, halibut offers important nutrients, including omega-3 fats, B vitamins, selenium and tryptophan, which helps regulate appetite and sleep, and even improves mood.

Our wild halibut arrives to us fresh from the chilly waters off the coast of Alaska. The fish are caught with bottom longlines, a fishing method that minimizes habitat damage and accidental catch.

Halibut is at its best baked, pan-seared, or marinated and lightly grilled, cooking methods that allow its mild, sweet flavor to shine. Try our recipe for Pan-seared Halibut with Pesto and Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes.
