An Easy Way to Eat Your Greens
I love to have a salad during the week, but don’t have time for all the washing and chopping! So, I do it all on the weekend, and package up my fridge. For the rest of the week, I can have mixed salads in no time.
- Carrots can be chopped and last for days. Peppers work well too.
- Tomatoes and cucumbers aren’t so great pre-chopped, so save your chopping for them.
- For avocados, only slice when necessary – store a half (or other partial) avocado in a zip-tight bag with lemon juice.
- For lettuce, either store it in a “salad saver” after washing/drying/trimming the ends, or wrap in paper towels and store in a zip-tight plastic bag (see picture below)
