Already known for seafood protein salads, Blount Fine Foods now offers Asian Wheatberry & Edamame Salad and a Tzatiki Taboule. Asian Wheatberry is a gluten-free mixture of wheatberry, barley and edamame tossed with lime juice, garlic and basil, sprinkled with a touch of jalapeño. Blount says this vegetarian product has only 50 calories and 0g trans fat per serving. Tzatiki Taboule features Greek yogurt tossed with whole-grain bulgur wheat, cucumbers, lemon, parsley, onions and garbanzo beans. “Today’s consumer wants the bold flavors that can be found in things like Southwestern and Mediterranean recipes,” says Bob Sewall, Blount’s executive vice president of sales and marketing. “We see the salad category where soups were 10 years ago. The days of filling the grocer’s [deli] cooler with potato salad, macaroni salad, chicken salad and coleslaw are rapidly ending and will be gone forever.”  pf
