I originally heard about this idea from a friend who pointed me to this. The idea is that you can make yourself a relatively fresh salad but you can make enough for a few days so that you can just grab it on the way out the door. I’ve resumed using these in my weekly cook up for part of my lunches.
I usually have vegetable barley soup with the salad and it makes for a pretty hearty lunch plus it’s vegan. Pictures below. I’m really interested in learning what others are doing for easy lunches (bonus points for also being frugal).
