Back when I lived in NYC, I worked at a super cute Upper West Side boutique. The store was open from 10:00am-8:00pm every day, and I worked that whole 10 hour shift pretty regularly. Hey, how else was I supposed to pay my bills? Manhattan is EXPENSIVE! ?
While I did my best to pack my lunches, sometimes you have to order in when you’re at the store that much. And one of our favorite things to get was the Fattoush Salad from a local Mediterranean restaurant. I had never tried it before my friend suggested it one day… but a salad with pita chips on it?! Say no more. I’m IN.
So, when Jewel-Osco reached out to tell me about their Open Nature® line of products, this salad totally came back to me. Open Nature is all about the good that comes from living a clean, natural lifestyle with high quality, minimally processed products. And this recipe for a Shrimp Fattoush Salad totally represents that. It’s not over complicated – just fresh, bright and delicious!
In order to make this right, you not only need great produce, but you also need high quality seafood that you can trust. And since we all don’t always have time to make our pita chips from scratch, it’s nice to grab a pre-made bag that you don’t need to worry about.
Wait, tell me more about these Open Nature products!
Well, Open Nature now has over 400 food and non-food products that are the same (or better!) quality as their competitor brands, but at a much lower cost. As a conscious grocery shopper, I really appreciate that Open Nature features honest products, without any artificial or chemical additives. I always look for high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oil on all my food labels… but don’t worry! You won’t see those ingredients on these products.
I buy my Open Nature products at Jewel-Osco, but you can also find them exclusively at all of the Albertsons Companies family of stores (Albertsons, Safeway, ACME Markets, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, Carrs/Safeway).
Before we dive into the recipe, I am SO excited to also tell you guys that I will be spending a few days in Northern California for an Open Nature retreat with Jewel-Osco in a few weeks! I am pumped to learn more about these products and meet some amazing food bloggers. Especially since their event in Chicago and my trip to Los Angeles with them were so much fun! Jewel-Osco has been in my life since before I can remember – it’s where I used to grocery shop with my Mom. So, to watch them evolve and grow, AND collaborate along the way, it’s really special.
Okay NOW we can get back to the recipe. Just look at those colors!
You can obviously play with these ingredients as you see fit. That’s the beauty of making salads at home! Add more or less shrimp, go crazy with the pita chips, cut the feta out if you’re avoiding cheese – it’s all up to you!
And if you eat a salad for dinner, you clearly deserve some ice cream for dessert! Especially when Open Nature Scandal-Less Ice Cream only has 290 calories per pint! The perfect way to end the day on a sweet note ?
