Since 1982 Newman’s Own Foundation has been donating all of their profits to charity, and now they’re taking their “give it all away” mission one step further by sponsoring the “Greens for Good” contest. In this contest, individuals submit an original salad recipe using a dressing from the Newman’s Own line for the chance to win $35,000 for an organization of their choice.
After hearing about this competition one of our fellows, Jamie, brainstormed all of the delicious salad ingredients she could think of and came up with what we think is an awesome combination: arugula, sweet potatoes, chickpeas, green apples, dried cherries, pepita seeds and Newman’s Own Parmesan and Roasted Garlic dressing. Apparently, the judges agree! We are very excited to announce that Jamie’s salad is now a finalist in the competition. If she wins, the prize money will go to FRN and allow us to donate 35,000 meals to hungry Americans.
To help us fight waste and feed people, please vote for the “Roasted Sweet Potato and Chickpea Salad with Newman's Own Parmesan & Roasted Garlic Dressing” once a day until October 5. We’ll be sure to let you know the results, but in the meantime, why not share this wonderful recipe (perfect for fall!) with your family and friends.
