Most grocery stores carry salad kits where they give you all the ingredients you need to create an artisanal salad. They come with little bags of perfectly portioned salad toppings and dressing. These are perfect to buy if you are in a rush or you don't want to spend a lot of time prepping ingredients. Salad kits are the perfect base to make an amazing meal! By adding a few fresh ingredients, you can bring your store-bought salad to life!

Caesar Salad

Take your classic Caesar salad to the next level! After you mix together all of the ingredients in the salad kit, top your bowl of greens off with a poached egg! This is a classic gourmet combination that will make your kitchen feel like a five star restaurant.

Southwest Salad

While you are at the store picking up your southwest salad kit, grab some chicken, jalape?os and avocados. Grill up the chicken and add the fresh ingredients on top. You can add whatever veggies or toppings you already have in your pantry to bring this to life!

Asian Salad

Asian salad kits are the best because you get all those savory flavors already pre-packaged and ready to go. Upgrade your bagged salad by adding steamed edamame, red cabbage and pan seared salmon! You can even add extra soy sauce to the dressed to really kick it up a notch!

Mediterranean Salad

A classic Mediterranean salad is the perfect healthy meal. However, the pre-packaged kits aren't usually very filling. Make this a protein packed meal by adding canned garbanzo beans and hard-boiled eggs! It is the perfect lunch!

Kale Salad

Kale salad will be your knew favorite meal after you make this once. Take your fall-inspired kale salad mix and roasted sweet potatoes and grilled chicken. Use some of the poppy seed dressing in the pack as a glaze while cooking the chicken. This is so easy and healthy!

These ideas are great especially if you are only cooking for one or two people. These salad kits perfectly portion out the ingredients you will need. It's a delicious, healthy meal that has minimal food waste! Check out more healthy recipes here!
