Ring in the Chinese New Year with Pete’s Living Greens Watercress

Watercress has long been a popular ingredient in Chinese cuisine. What better way to celebrate the world’s most nutrient dense food than to feature it in a traditional Asian watercress salad? And, since today is the beginning of The Chinese New Year, we thought we’d add a little goat cheese to the recipe for flavor, added protein, and, most of all, to honor The Year of the Goat.

Unknown-6Traditional Chinese recipes are integral to the Chinese New Year celebration. All family members gather together to eat these special foods throughout this festive time. Chinese Dumplings, fish, spring rolls, and Nian Gao are a few examples of dishes enjoyed during this celebration. To get started, try Taste’s Asian Watercress Salad, and our very own Upland Cress & Roast Beef Summer Rolls with Hoisin Dipping Sauce.

#DidYouKnow? Wear red today. Some Chinese individuals believe that wearing red during New Year’s will bring you luck and ward off evil spirits. We wonder would eating Pete’s Living Greens Red Butter Lettuce bring a touch of good luck too?!
