Use a Variety of In-Season, Fresh Veggies
If your salad is exciting and full of variety, you're more likely to eat it! I include all my favorite veggies like chopped red cabbage, carrots, bell peppers, and sugar snap peas. Choose the freshest, in-season veggies for best results, because those will last the longest.
If you're buying prepackaged veggies like shredded carrots or lettuce to save time, look for the latest date possible, which are usually on the back of the shelf.
