Garden Salad That Lasts All Week

You can make an easy garden salad that will last all week. This garden salad stays crisp and delicious, so you can enjoy a side salad every night.

 

I created this Garden Salad as a part of a 6 Meal Prep Dinners for Weight Loss series. It’s super easy and quick to make and is a great accompaniment to dinner.

What does a garden salad have in it?

 

Since we are trying to make this salad last a full week, we are going to leave out any soft vegetables. Soft vegetables are veggies with lost of water, like cucumbers, sliced tomatoes, bell peppers, etc.

 

I like using sturdy greens, as well. If you use red leaf lettuce it probably won’t last all week. I suggest using Romaine, Kale, Spinach, etc, as the basis for this garden salad. Then I add hardy vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, onion, carrot, etc.

 

This Garden Salad That Lasts All Week is so colorful!

The Key to Making a Garden Salad That Lasts All Week

is to not add soft vegetables or dressing. You want to keep the greens and veggies sturdy and hardy. Soft veggies and lettuce will rot quickly and cause your salad to brown and decay. So keep those veggies strong!
