Costco’s Eat Smart Super 7 Salad Mix

Several years ago, my husband’s cardiologist strongly encouraged us to transition to a vegan diet. Honestly, as a home chef, I couldn’t fathom cooking a 100% vegan diet. So we opted to compromise by adding more vegetables and various types of vegetables in our diet. One way we quickly accomplished this task was with the Eat Smart Super 7 Salad Mix, available at Costco.

Why Eat Smart Super 7 Salad Mix?

This salad mix is a cool, efficient and cost-effective way to get more veggies in your diet, especially cruciferous vegetables that researchers are studying in regards to cancer prevention. The Eat Smart Super 7 Salad Mix includes broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, chicory, and kale.

The package also includes a package of dried cranberries and roasted pumpkin seeds rounding out the “Super 7”. And it has a separate package of poppyseed dressing.  I am not particularly fond of poppyseed dressing so we subbed with a quick olive oil vinaigrette. I generally just toss the package of poppyseed dressing that has quite a bit of fat in it. 

What’s the Verdict?

All I can say is “wow.” Regardless of your sustenance plan – regular, vegan, vegetarian, anti-cancer, Omega, Mediterranean or plant-based plans – this salad mix is a great, easy veggie option.

Here’s my first stir-fry – Shrimp Soybean Stir fry! 

Other potential options for the salad can include vegetable soups, burritos, spring rolls, tacos, and of course, variations on a theme of salads!

Since I first wrote this blog in 2013, Eat Smart offers smaller bags of similar vegetable mixes with Asian, Southwest, beet, and other healthy options to help you get as many vegetables in as possible in one sitting. Enjoy!

  1. This is a really great bag salad. Has all the healthy veggies that might not be your favs in a stand alone dish But this adds cranberries & roasted pumpkin seeds along with poppy seed dressing. It keeps for days even after you add the dressing. It was becoming a staple in my healthy diet and now Costco has stopped carrying it. Found a smaller & pricier bag @ Harris Teeter but would like to see Costco bring this back

  2. Too much added sugar. This is very sad to take something healthy and add sugar dressing (second ingredient) and then take sweet cranberries and add sugar to the dried cranberrys. Watch the documentary Fed Up this is why we are fat we think we are eating healthy and then we see all the hidden sugar which goes straight to fat. I loved this salad now I know why. I’ll be making my own and using dried cranberrys from wholefoods without the added sugar.

    • I agree! Take something good and add sugar. So I just throw away the dressing and make a healthy alternative too!

  3. I live alone. Can I freeze half the bag and use for smoothies?

    • Hi Bernie! I’m sorry about the delay! I have made soups with the bag, frozen and rewarmed without a taste problem. You might try blanching a cup of greens, dunking in ice water, letting it dry and freezing. And then try freezing a cup without blanching and see if there is a difference? I’d love to hear the results! Good luck!
