Laroot’s Americana Salad is our ode to the California way of life, evoking warmer climes, fertile farmland, and an obsession with all things wellness. Based loosely on the Southern American seven-layer pea salad—which typically calls for bacon and mayonnaise amid layers of lettuce, tomato, and cucumber—our California-inspired version boasts an array of organic, seasonal produce including baby kale, baby spinach, beets, carrots, and Brussel sprouts, as well as the tomatoes and cucumbers that recall traditional recipes. The layer of smoked trout is packed with heart healthy omega-3s, while the alternative turkey bacon is high in protein, B vitamins, and zinc. The harmony of crunchy raw vegetables in our salad mix, seasoned with our house-made green-goddess dressing, provides all the micronutrients (iron, calcium, vitamin B6, vitamin K) you’ll need for a nutritious lunch. As per Ayurvedic and TCM principles, we advise that this dish be consumed during the day for optimal digestion of the uncooked vegetables.
