What’s the first thing you think of when you make a salad?
Lettuce, right?
Have you ever tried to bring a salad to work and forgotten the dressing? Boooring. Or thought, I’ll just put a little on and discovered a mushy mess at lunch?
Well here is a great solution-pack a lettuce free salad already dressed!
What a delicious and non-mushy way to get veggies into your diet. This salad is packed with tons of Vitamin A (158 percent!), which is great for vision and immunity, and almost all your Vitamin C (90.3 percent), good for gums and skin. Eating fresh, raw veggies (right from your CSA/farm share) is the best way to maximize intake of these vitamins as cooking can remove around 25 percent or more of the vitamins.
As a quick and easy solution for a time crunch, I used some organic pre-made dressing. I love Annie’s Organic dressings-preservative free and completely delicious.
