I Want A Salad But They Take Too Long To Chop Up....


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I cut up 2 heads of lettuce at the beginning of the week and put them in a freezer bag. Then I chop up my bell peppers, carrots, cucumber, cabbage and celery in another bag. This way I have a salad mixed up and ready every time I have the urge to eat something quick- now there is no excuses for me to grab cookies or ice cream- salad is just as easy to prepare :) and it doesnt go bad if you use the freezer bags to lock in the freshness

    JILLTBNAGART - I usually put a papertowel in the gallon size bag with my lettuce and it makes the lettuce stay fresh longer.
