The ultimate in convenience and “green” eating—a salad in an edible carrier. The crisp, savory waffle cone carriers are flavored with chives and Parmesan cheese to contrast with the fresh, colorful salad mixture inside. It’s a toss of leafy lettuces, goat cheese, blueberries, candied pecans and homemade Green Goddess dressing.
