Most of the “salad in a bag” kits you find at the grocery store are marketed as healthy but loaded with junk… the dressings are usually made with cheap (not so nutrient-dense oils) like soybean, canola or vegetable oil, lots of preservatives and added sugar. And the kits almost always include more sugar in the form of sweetened dried fruit or candied nuts. If you start looking at the packages closely you’ll notice this is typical of almost every salad kit out there.🥗
I’ll occasionally buy these pre-packaged mixes out of convenience, but just spruce them up a bit. I usually ditch the dressing and most of the toppings and then add a couple things like lean protein, more healthy fats and my own dressing. Homemade dressing is great, but I have a few healthy store-bought options that I love as well. They’re all listed in a recent blog post, which I’ll link in my profile. .
This salad started with the @traderjoes Veggies and Greens salad kit. I used about 2/3 of the greens and the pistachios from the kit then added grilled chicken, avocado and my favorite @wholefoods zesty tahini dressing. It was delish and perfect as a #mealsized salad for lunch. 🥗💃🏻💯

  • Much healthier to make your own dressing anyway. And it can just be simple with oil and vinegar and some salt. So much better than the ready-made options.
