Green and pink may not be a popular fashion pairing, but those two colors look great together on your dinner plate. Specifically, we're talking the flaky, tender pink of perfectly cooked salmon, the kind that falls apart on your fork in just the right ways. And the green, the feisty jalapeño, garlic, and cilantro chimichurri, that adds its perfect spicy burst to any forkful. Now that you've paired those colors in food, feel free to wear those pink pants and that green shirt to work.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
