Here at Urban Roots we are getting ready for another season of Roots for the Home Team and Twins baseball! Last night a group of Urban Roots youth met with a group of Youth Farm youth for a recipe development session at St. Paul College.
Armed with ideas for new salads, these local youth chopped, mixed, measured and tasted their way to some delicious new additions to the “Roots” salad lineup. Students and instructors from St. Paul College’s culinary program were there to help the students think about flavor combinations, texture and color to make unique, appealing salads.
Urban Roots interns created two new salads that will wow you this summer! New in 2014 will be ‘Imogene and Tony’s Cajun Creation’ and ‘Big Bang Seoul Salad.’
All together this creative group of youth and professionals developed five amazing salads available for purchase at weekend Twins home games this baseball season. Come visit us at the Roots for the Home Team salad stand located at gate 34 this summer to try them all!

Thank you to all the St. Paul College culinary students and instructors for hosting this event and offering suggestions and tips that will help make this year’s salads the best yet!
