Salad Bar Anyone?
I love salads, but was finding it to be a hassle to bring all the containers and packages to the counter each time I wanted to prepare one. So one day I got the idea to make my own version of a mini Salad Bar.
This is the method I’ve found to making salads easier and quicker; I prep all of the veggies and place them in glass bowls on a baking sheet along with some of my favorite dressings. The tray fits on the bottom shelf of my refrigerator and is easy to pull out when I’m ready to mix a salad to my liking for that meal.
It works great when I need to take a meal on the go and for snacking, too! I often take a small container of veggies with me when I am going to run errands for the day…it helps me to not grab the first snack I can find when I feel the need to munch.
This has made shopping easier, also, because I can see at a glance what I am out of and what new veggies I might want to try for the week.
What do you do to make preparing salads easier?
