Jason's Deli is helping cancer research (and it's delicious)

Thanks to Jason's Deli for the partnership. All thoughts/opinions belong to the writer. Your experience may differ.

564,800 Americans are expected to die of cancer this year, which means more than 1,500 people a day.

Thankfully, not everyone who gets cancer does not become a statistic.

June is National Cancer Survivors Month and since 2013, Jason's Deli and MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas have teamed up in support of cancer research, by educating people through showing how important nutrition is for treatment and prevention with their new healthy Salmon Pacifica Salad.

The Salmon Pacifica Salad is made with healthy omega-3 wild-caught sockeye salmon, potassium-filled avocado, grape tomatoes full with lycopene, fire-roasted Piquillo peppers, pickled onions, cucumbers, and organic field greens with a cucumber-dill vinaigrette.

Cancer has touched many lives, including my own. I lost an aunt to stomach and bladder cancer in 2005 and I also have a relative who is currently battling leukemia. Believe it or not, I have an aunt who just beat Stage 2 breast cancer, so supporting cancer research is important to me.

I was able to go to Jason's Deli, try out the Salmon Pacifica Salad, and find out more about this important partnership.

Did you know that 50 cents from every Salmon Pacific's Salad sold goes to cancer research, and since 2013, they have raised over $713,000? (They also create or switch a new salad every 6 months!)

For the Salmon Pacifica salad, at first glance, is a surprise. You can see chunks of salmon, avocado, and the fire-roasted Piquillo Peppers on a bed of greens. Everything tasted so fresh, and each ingredient added another level of flavor. I've never had Cucumber-Dill vinaigrette before, and the tanginess on top of the Piquillo Peppers, pickled onions, and avocado brought all of the flavors together.

What made the experience even more was the General Manager, Chad, came by the table as we were eating and talked to us - not only about the partnership, but his history with Jason's Deli and the company as a whole.

Jason's Deli not only cares about their own people (which was why the partnership with MD Anderson Cancer Center originally started), they just care.
