In 1989, Fresh Express created the very first ready-to-eat, packaged garden salad available in grocery stores nationwide. Today, Fresh Express is the market leader in delivering great-tasting, nutritious, fresh salads to health-conscious people. The brand has an unrivaled selection of fresh salad mixes, complete kits, and wholesome, organic products. But whichever variety of Fresh Express you choose, rest assured you’ll be getting the freshest, best tasting salad you can find.

I received coupons from the sponsor of the Moms MeetSM program, May Media Group LLC, who received them directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms MeetSM blogger, I agreed to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC. or the manufacturer of the product.

I signed up and started my 30-Day Salad Swap by swapping Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo with my version of the Fresh Express Salad with Creamy Pasta.  By doing so I consumed at least 25% fewer calories.
