Taylor Farms Superfood Salad

I am absolutely in love with this salad, but it’s usually $8/lb and they don’t always have it at Kroger. I put myself on a grocery store ban in February because I was spending way more money than necessary there. My neighbor knows how much I adore this salad because I can’t shut up about it (he’s the one who introduced me to its existence), but we will get to that.

I was dropping notes off at his place a couple weeks ago and he had just insulted me (I don’t remember what he said anymore because this is such a regular occurrence) as he was opening the refrigerator door.
A: Oh yeah, they had this on sale at Kroger, so I got it for you.
F: :O!!! You are forgiven!
A: Weren’t you mad at me about two seconds ago?
F: I am easily placated by food!

I’ve elevated him to the level of Even More Awesome because this time around, the ingredient list is actually there! (The times I’ve gotten it, it’s always been hopelessly deformed by the “manager’s special” sticker, or just not even present. :'( ) I have the breakdown of ingredients now! Let the experimenting begin! (FYI, for now, this is just a breakdown.)

    Farrah, just found your sweet blog…love it, was eating Super Food Salad and searched for ingredients as Mark did, I had no idea about the dressing! My Kroger has never listed the ingred’s on the label. I just assumed it was a pomegranate vinaigerette or Raspberry Vin. Thank you for the post! Much appreciated.

    • Glad I could help! I was ridiculously overjoyed when I found a container where they actually listed the ingredients. *-* My hope is to be able to recreate it someday, heh heh heh.

  3. I found this looking for a recipe for this stuff- it’s the best! I know it’s been a bit since posted on here, but I did find a recipe. Just in case you didn’t or someone else finds this like I did, here is a link to it.

    • !!! Thank you so much! You are a wonderful human being! :D!!!

      • Amy Bramblette

        Oh thank you! I don’t know about wonderful, but I sure wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on this salad. SOOO good!

      • Oh, you are. You’ve totally made my week, haha. I’ve been so sad that I haven’t been able to get it at Kroger lately! (I guess I could’ve asked them to make it, but I was hoping for manager’s specials to come along.)

      • Amy Bramblette

        They don’t have at my normal Kroger. I just happened in a different one the other day during lunch and saw it. But now, we don’t have to worry what the deli manager does. We can do it ourselves. Such power. ;-)

      • Agreed! :D I’m so excited to try it out! :]!

  4. I just looked up Pomegranate Blueberry Vinaigrette and it says that Walmart carries a Litehouse Pomegranate Blueberry Vinaigrette Dressing. The ingredient list looks very similar. I’m totally going to try it!

    • !!! Thanks for letting me know! I’m going to have to check it out too! Maybe it’ll be easier to recreate if I have something to compare it to! ;P
