Mann's Roma Blend: This Week's Market Report "Good Buy!"
As a busy chef, I am always looking for opportunities to cut down on my prep time without sacrificing quality. It’s a tall order. Products like Mann’s Roma Blend help me cut down on picking, washing, drying, and processing greens, and it is totally fresh and delicious. I love the fresh crunch of the Romaine paired with the slight bitterness of the Arcadian Harvest, and these textures and flavors pair well with almost any ingredients and are an ideal bed for salads and filling for wraps. Visually, the combination is very beautiful, and it definitely strikes me as a more upscale, designer green mix; something my diners are increasingly interested in. I also love Mann’s Roma Blend as a substitute for greens on sandwiches and burgers. This mix is versatile, hearty, and can hold up under heavier ingredients and dressings. You can also use it as a filling in tacos, bahn mis, summer rolls, and summer rolls. I love it!
