8 Meal Prep Work Week Salads that you will want to eat!

A little prep work on Sunday will set you up to skip the lunch time fast food, and have beautiful, nourishing, ready to go salads to go for the work week!

Meal Prep Lunch Salads Youll want to eat

Move over boring bagged salad, and have a look at these meal prep salads that will change the way you think about work week lunches!

It is time to save money, skip the drive through or cafeteria food, and eat yo veggies – all week long. 

Tips for meal prep work week salads 

  • To keep things crunchy – prep your ingredients and get them as dry as you can (salad spinner or lay out on paper towel).
  • You don’t have to assemble all the same salad for the week – prep “salad bar” ingredients and assemble different salads throughout the week
  • Store the dressing separately & portion it out so it is ready to grab for work (unless it is a mason jar salad designed to store the dressing in the jar). A leak proof salad dressing container is essential! 
  • Choose hearty ingredients – salad does not mean lettuce, in fact lettuce is one of the first ingredients to go brown and soggy. Use heartier ingredients like broccoli, carrots, grains, grape tomatoes, cabbage, and kale (to name a few!).
  • Store your salads or ingredients in glass containers. Simply just so you can see what’s in your containers. I promise if a beautiful fridge of prepped salads is staring at you, you will eat them.

How long do meal prep salads last?

Ultimately it is going to depend what you have in your salad. A salad with cut up tomatoes will last one day, but a salad using grape tomatoes will last you 4 days, no problem. 

The salads I am showing you here all last at least 3 -4 days.
