Figs Are Main Attraction in FiveStar’s Latest Family Sized Simply Fresh Salads Launch Exclusively at Costco

(Ontario, California) – Staying on-trend is one thing, but bringing the freshest seasonal ingredients in a timely manner is another, especially as consumers look for solutions to their “what’s for dinner?” dilemma. FiveStar Gourmet Foods has answered the call with their latest extension to the wildly successful Family Size line of Simply Fresh Salads® with their new Fig & Walnut Salad.

As fall approaches, figs and fresh apples are in peak season and both are amazingly delicious. It is a wonderful pairing of fruit and nuts that provides freshness beyond what is expected. Other best-selling recipes in the Simply Fresh Salads® Family Size line include Mexican Style Caesar Salad with Cilantro Cesar Dressing and limited-edition Harvest Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette.

The large family salad is prepackaged in a recyclable serving bowl and starts with a generous helping of fresh Spring Mix and is topped with creamy Feta cheese and crisp, fresh apples, roasted walnuts, dried Mission figs, and fresh grape tomatoes. This amazing salad comes complete with FiveStar’s Signature Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette created in-house.

“The FiveStar culinary team works tirelessly to make incredible recipes and knows exactly when to highlight the best of what mother nature has to offer,” says Tal Shoshan CEO of FiveStar Gourmet Foods. “Being able to offer new choices for consumers with premium quality ingredients and curated dressings at a very attractive price are keys to our success.”

FiveStar meets the growing trend around delivering unexpectedly delicious flavors while staying conscious of balanced nutrition and clean ingredients. This new family sized recipe features alternative proteins from feta cheese and walnuts with no artificial ingredients—and is vegetarian friendly. The Fig & Walnut Family Size Salad by Simply Fresh Salads®offers 5 servings of 3.5oz and each serving contains 200 calories, 4 grams protein, and 2 grams fiber.
