Among the salad kits are:

“We have seen a trend of stores adding kale, beets, brussels sprouts and healthy salad kits, like our 5-A-Day Plus salad, to attract new customers to their salad bars,” Kirk Norman, director of business development for the Sidney, Ohio-based processor and distributor, said in the release. “Today’s consumers…would like to purchase healthy salads from their local deli department or salad bar.”
