A bit of prep goes a long way. Chopping your own vegetables, or buying pre-chopped vegetables is a great way to make eating lots of vegetables easy and delicious.
No more boring lame salads for your lunch box, it’s time to take those chopped vegetables, grains, protein, and whatever else to make a really delicious and nutrient packed salad. I’ve got you covered with these 12 delicious salad recipes.
Click here for the link to this delicious and really easy buffalo chicken salad recipe I created for The Cookful last month.
I layer this salad in one lightweight container to bring to work with me. Dressing, chicken, hearty vegetables (carrots, celery), softer vegetables, then lettuce on the top. That way nothing gets too soggy between packing and eating.
When you’re ready to eat, go ahead & stir or shake if there’s enough room in your container, and enjoy!
side note: I’m not the biggest fan of packing salads or anything in mason jars because I take public transport to work and typically walk about 20-30 minutes (yay for all those steps!) each trip. A heavy jar or a couple just ain’t gonna happen.
