Is it blasphemy to talk salad in between Thanksgiving and Christmas?
I’m going to do it anyway. Because honestly. Maybe you have some green bean casserole on your holiday table, but that does not make up for all the veggies you should be getting every day during the holiday season.
Plus, all those heavy meals leave me feeling pretty sleepy and lazy – which is GREAT on the day of! Not so great the rest of the week. I like to make sure we have some hearty, healthy meals between all the heavy / sweet / sugary foods that are typically on our holiday menus.
And Dole makes it even easier now with their new Take Aways. I am a little obsessed with these little boxes.
They have everything in them that you need to make an amazing salad. Greens base, a mix of grains / proteins / seasonings, a dressing to match, and some kind of drizzle for even more flavor.
Plus – it comes with a fork AND a wet wipe. And they’re so easy. We’ve loved having these for grab-and-go lunches on busy work days. Everything you need is already in the box, and then, you USE the box as your serving bowl.
Open containers. Dump everything in. Mix together. Eat.
I think my favorite so far is the Mediterranean Feast – so good with the feta and olives in the mix. Yum! I love that they have whole grains, too. It’s nice to have some new mix-ins that you might not have thought of trying before.
And ps: when you’re looking for these Take Aways, make sure to grab some of their new snappier celery hearts. Oh, I have great plans for this. I’ll let you know how my recipe idea turns out.
I am a Dole ambassador and was provided these salads and celery to sample and review. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that support us!
