Parents-this is your department!
When you grocery shop, always purchase fresh greens, lettuce and salad fixings. It helps if you train yourself to wash and dry the leafy salad greens as soon as you unpack your groceries. Invest in a salad spinner to wash and spin dry your produce items. This will prevent them from going bad quickly. Store them in closed plastic ziploc bags in the refrigerator and you will have a salad ready to go for the next few dinners. (Try slipping a paper towel in the bag to soak up any moisture that gets in the bag.) Doing this makes it so much easier for yourself and makes it more likely that you will have a fresh nutritious salad to round out your meal.
And don’t forget how good the little extras are in salad!
