Quick, Easy and Amazing Green Salad IdeasAn easy way to ensure you eat plenty of vegetables is to keep pre-made salad in the fridge in an airtight container.

Forget the store-made salads because they’re so boring. You can certainly start with a lettuce mix, but add your own colorful pizzazz for a salad you’re sure to reach for over and over again.

Note: If you make premade salad, store juicy vegetables like diced tomatoes separately and just add them when you’re ready to eat.


Experiment with a wide variety of greens as you might be surprised at what you actually like. You can create different tastes and textures by mixing different types of lettuce. Try spinach, a spring mix or whatever you’d like. You can even add a bit of iceberg lettuce to create some extra crunch.
