Trade in dull pre-packaged salads for delicious, fresh greens!
Making your own DIY salad mix can be a great way to ensure you always have fresh and delicious greens on hand. Not only is this salad mix easy to make, but it’s also a great way to add some variety and nutrition to your meals.
DIY Salad Mix
- 1 head Boston or Bibb Lettuce
- 1 head Red Leaf or Butter Lettuce
- 1 head Radicchio
Remove the outer leaves of lettuces and radicchio.
Fill the sink with cold water.
Slice romaine crossways into bite-size pieces. Cut radicchio in quarters, remove the white core, and slice into bite-sized pieces. Tear butter or leaf lettuce into bite-sized pieces and place all the lettuce into the sink with cold water.
After the lettuce soaks for a few minutes, drain the sink and spin the salad dry.
Store salad in ziplock (I use reusable silicone ones) bags with the air gently pressed out.The salad mix keeps for a week in an air-tight bag.
