Pre-make a salad


So it is finally spring !!!!!! And coming with spring and summer is all of those great foods we have been waiting all winter to eat- namely BBQ's and salads. I have been pre making our weekly salad for awhile and it has been working so well I thought I would share it here : )

At the start of the week either Sunday or Monday night I chop up our salad for the week. We are then able to use either all or pieces of this salad for all different things like- an actual salad, stir fry, sandwiches/wraps, tacos etc. We use bits and pieces depending on what we are eating that night. I top it up throughout the week when it starts to run low and then clean it out on the weekend to start again.

I use the Tupperware Serving Centre which is absolutely love. These will set you back about $50 but are worth every cent in my opinion as they last forever and have so many different uses. Almost every party we have I pull a few out and fill them with different snacks.

Another great use for these which is something a girlfriend of mine does is she she chops up snacks for her daughter on a Friday night like cheese, polony, fruit and dips etc and puts it on the bottom shelf of the fridge. Then her daughter can access this over the weekend whenever she wants to have a snack. I love this idea and will definitely be using it once Flynn is old enough !! What a great way to help your kids to make healthy snacks choices whilst still controlling what they are eating : )

How did you know that I was just thinking the other day how to pre-make all my partners salads for the week. I pre-make his toasted sandwhiches in advance and freeze for breakfast but he likes a salad box for lunch. I already pre chop most my vegies but to have all in the one container would be great.

Have you even come across similar containers in square or rectanlge??? I have a fear of round containers they just don't fit properly in my fridge.

Hi Nat : ) I think Decor do one that is slightly smaller that is rectangle? I think it has about 4 sections but you could get a few of those that would stack neatly in the fridge : ) Jade

Thanks I might just have to check that out.

I did have a though of using my big square firdge smart and maybe putting some fridge baskets in it to split the vegies up.

The easier it is, the more chance he might actually make his own lunches if I run out of time.

I really love your blog by the way!
