Packing lunches in advance - how is the salad on Friday?
Whenever I post that I make my salads in advance on Sunday, I always get questions about the quality of the salad on the last day. As I sat down to eat my yummy Mediterranean salad, I realized it was Friday. I figured I would take a picture to post that my Friday salad is just as fresh and delicious as my Monday salad.
In this picture, I have just added a crumbled, heated black bean burger, but I haven't added the cucumber dressing yet (brought it in a separate tupperware).
I made 5 salads on Sunday night, they were stored in separate tupperware containers in the crisper drawer of the frig.
Ingredients for 5 of these salads:
2 packages of very crisp romaine
about half a package of carrot shreddies
1 cut up roma tomato for each salad
5 kalamata olives each
2 tbs (about) cut up pepperocini for each
chopped red onion
1 small red cabbage, diced
At work, I add a heated, crumbled spicy black bean burger and my dressing of choice!
This level of planning is a lifesaver to me. I am the pokey little puppy in the morning, I lollygag, I move slowly. I love it that my lunch is ready to go - I just have to stick the components in an insulated bag and walk out the door.
