Fresh Spring Salads

Go crisp and light with Z-I-P

Bright, leafy lettuce and crisp vegetables are sure signs of spring. Now is the time we feast on fresh greens and sensational salads in preparation for the long, hot summer ahead. That’s a good thing but it could be even better.

Boost your salad bowl with protein power!

Beef contains zinc, iron and protein? These essential building blocks provide your body with the energy it needs for hectic days filled with work, school and warm-weather activities. Beef is also a great source of B-vitamins including riboflavin and thiamin.

There are nearly 30 lean cuts of beef. According to government standards, "lean" cuts have less than 10 grams of total fat, 4.5 grams or less of saturated fat, and less than 95 milligrams of cholesterol per 100-gram (3.5 oz.) serving.

Choose Lean Cuts

Steaks with "round" or "loin" in the name are lean. Steakhouse favorites like tenderloin and New York strip (which comes from the loin) count! Flank, top sirloin and T-bone steaks are all lean cuts, too.
