Ready Pac Foods has launched its Limited Edition Roasted Corn and Pulled Pork Bistro Bowl, available now through mid-September 2017. Inspired by backyard summer barbeques, the new salad features fire-roasted corn, smoky poblano peppers and seasoned pulled pork on top of a crisp, chopped blend of romaine and iceberg lettuce. The new produce is also topped with a creamy chili lime dressing, cheese cornbread croutons and BBQ sauce.
"Consumers should be able to indulge in delicious summer BBQ flavors in a convenient way without sacrificing healthy eating," says Nannette Richardson, vice president, portfolio marketing, Ready Pac Foods. "We developed the Limited Edition Roasted Corn and Pulled Pork Bistro after seeing pulled pork grow 21 percent as an ingredient on restaurant menus over the last five years. Combined with corn, one of the ingredients consumers found most appealing for the upcoming summer season1, our newest limited edition salad gives them the summer grilled taste they crave."
The new seasonal salad joins the company's other limited edition flavors, including Roasted Beets & Baby Greens Bistro Bowl salad that launched this past spring and last fall's Pumpkin Spice Bistro Bowl.
