My friend Jenny is a school teacher who is trying to be more healthy. She's a busy working mom with no time for making lunches every night, so I suggested that she make her salads for the whole week on Sunday.
"But won't the lettuce melt?"
"Not if you make a paper towel salad," I replied.
She did and she sent me this picture.
Just make the salads, putting the dressing in a separate container. Then, in each salad container, put a dry paper towel.
(You can even change it out on Wednesday night for Thursday and Friday. But it will usually be fine for the whole week.)
The paper towels absorb the moisture and keep the lettuce crisp.
BONUS TIP: Do the same for salads to serve with supper all week (in one big plastic container) or for the kids' lunches.
Eat happier and healthier!
