If you eat at fine restaurants on Oahu, chances are you’ll see the term “Nalo Greens” on a menu. The ubiquitous salad mix comes from Dean Okimoto’s Nalo Farms in Waimanalo, on eastern Oahu. The small operation sits at the base of the Ko’olau Mountains, which tower majestically over the neat, multihued rows of vegetables. The farm is Hawaii’s premier grower of salad greens, along with delicate microgreens, herbs & esoteric produce such as Okinawan spinach.
The farm also offers tours where you walk with the farmers through the fields to see first hand the variety of greens being grown and how you can use them in your cooking.
