Meal Prep: To meal prep a salad, add all the ingredients to individual meal prep containers, or family sized containers. Add the dressing to a separate container and do not add it until you are ready to serve.
Storage: Will hold in the fridge for 4-5 days, does not hold well in the freezer.
Serving: If you added the dressing and the salad gets soggy, add it to a sandwich wrap or large tortilla. It’s a great way to salvage leftover soggy salad.
