Packable Crunchy Detox Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing

Craving a light and fresh lunch? This packable crunchy detox salad is loaded with nourishing veggies and perfect for traveling or an office lunch. Vegan + gluten-free. This post is sponsored by Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Lunch. 

I talk about my love for salad all the time. I’ve done salad challenges, shared how to build a meal-sized salad and have way too many salad recipes here on EBF to count, but today’s salad is a little different for a couple reasons 1. It’s 100% plant-based and 2. It’s packable so it’s perfect for an on-the-go lunch. Whether your planning a summer road-trip and want to be prepared with a healthy option to enjoy on the drive or simply looking to pack a nutritious lunch for the office, this crunchy detox salad is going to be just the thing to pack in your tote bag.

It’s loaded with fresh, crunchy cruciferous veggies (like kale and cabbage) that are packed with nutrients to help you glow from the inside out. Along with all the veggies, there’s a trio of plant-based protein toppings — quinoa, edamame and almonds. The apple chunks and sesame ginger dressing add a hint of sweetness while the creaminess from the avocado ties the whole salad together perfectly. I don’t know what it is about this combo, but I’m hooked and will definitely be making this salad again and again.

Packable Crunchy Detox Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing

The containers that I used to pack this salad are from the Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Lunch collection, 100% leak-proof food storage containers designed for ready-to-go meals and snacks. When Rubbermaid reached out to me about partnering to create a recipe for their salad/snack container I said yes without hesitation. Me, create a healthy salad recipe? I can do that in my sleep. I mean, have you seen my Instagram? 😉

Plus, I was pretty excited about the containers too! They’re 100% leak-proof (guaranteed), BPA-free and stain-resistant.

The salad container is my jam. I love that the bottom layer keeps salad greens fresh and crisp, while the top tray has plenty of room for lots of salad toppings as well as a separate little container for your dressing.

In the BRILLIANCE salad/snack set you get two containers, one for your salads and one for packing extra snacks. For this recipe I loaded up the snack container with tomatoes, apple slices and an avocado.

The best part is that when you’re ready to eat the salad, you can remove the toppings tray and pour the toppings over the greens, drizzle on your dressing and dig in! The container is larger than it looks in the photos so you have plenty of space to toss the salad and you can eat it directly from the container.

I can already tell that this salad container is going to get a ton of use. I might need to buy a few more so I can meal prep multiple salads at once! If you want to buy your own salad/snack set, you can find it on Amazon or at Target.

  1. Hello. I’m so glad I found your site. I’ve been going through your recipes for a couple days, picking out ones that I’d like to try. Anyway, i was looking at the nutrition info for this one, and the carbs seem off. I’ll plug it all in to myfitnesspal app, but I thought you might want to take a look at it. Thanks. 🙂 I can’t wait to try all of the yummy recipes.

  2. I’m definitely trying to eat more salad. These containers would be great for my latest favorite, greek salad with grilled chicken!

  3. This would be the perfect container for me to bring a healthy lunch. I’m usually on the road around lunchtime so I either grab a few small things (almonds, banana) or I end up at fast food, which I just don’t want to do anymore. Thanks for the opportunity! Can’t wait to try this dressing and share it with our new women’s wellness group!

  4. I would love to win this set because this school year I will be working full time! I will be the school receptionist in the am and assistant teacher in the pm. So I will need to start packing a lunch. I’ve been on a healthier track lately, and this would be super helpful!
    Thanks

  5. I am a teacher and will be going back to school soon. One of my goals is to eat healthier, and this set looks PERFECT for inspiring me to pack a healthy salad every day for lunch! My husband lost his job recently and so we are on a tight budget. I would love to win a set like this!

  6. Hi! I would love to win to make it extra easy and fun to pack my lunch. I do this every day and mostly bring different types of salads. This would be an easy way to pack it so it stays crispy! Plus, I start teaching again soon, so it will be an extra treat to start the school year off right! Thanks a bunch.

  7. Oh how I would love to win this salad set! I eat lunch at my desk every single day and this would make my life so much easier! Salads are my jam and I love everything from a classic Ceasar Salad to a Spiralized Veggie Salad with Quinoa!

  8. Wining this would change our lunch game!!! My husband works 12 to 14 hour days and finding ways to pack his food that will allow him to eat on the go is a real struggle, so he will just go all day without eating. What!!?!? I know!! Kills me! He turns 40 Sept 9th and has a goal of losing 15 lbs and I’m trying really hard to help him, this could be a huge help in getting him set up for success with one packaging tool instead of 5, like normal and annoying him. Lol

  9. My teacher lunch box ALWAYS has at least 6 containers. Hay. Are. Separate. Which is a mess when you are trying to eat, grade, meet with others, help a child, run around school, etc. hahah Having this set will help keep everything together and make teacher lunches MUCH easier!

  10. I would love to be able to pack a lunch in this that I know would be secure and not a big sloppy mess before I get to it. I love almost any salad with salmon and avocado on it. They are my favorite two ingredients.

  11. I would like to win the Rubbermaid salad container because I make salads ALL the time for work. I am a nurse and I work 12hr night shifts so it’s all about packing the salad right so it doesn’t get soggy after sitting there for 7-8 hours before I can dig in on my lunch break! I have one of the round salad containers right now that keeps your toppings seperate but it’s rather bulky and oddly shaped. Definitely not as intelligently engineered like this Rubbermaid one! I’m also all about packing my lunches quickly and efficiently so I think this would be the perfect container for the job! 🙂 if I got this salad container I would make my favorite Greek chicken Salad to fill it up, would be the perfect combination!

  12. What an excellent product!!! And Rubbermaid – actually attainable 🙂 I’m heading back to work for another school year and this would be excellent to help make bringing salads to work easier!!! When you work in Special Ed for 40 hours a week… anything that makes lunch more seamless is greatly welcomed 🙂

  13. I would LOVE to win this set because it makes your food look so beautiful and inviting! It shows off all the wonderful colors of your packed lunch, and I especially love the built in dressing container. I always bring my whole dressing bottle to work and then I either forget it or someone else uses it ???? #needthis

  14. I would LOVE to win this great giveaway! I recently bought my first place and am always trying to be healthier. Prepping and packing my meals (any meal!) are what I’d like to think of as two of my “mid-year resolutions”. And unfortunately, reusin the only 2-3 matching pieces of Tupperware I own has not been the easiest 🙂

  15. This salad looks great! I love handy lunch packing items! I had a salad box and used it all the time, then I lost it. So, I could use a new one and I have to say, this looks way better than the one I had!

  16. I’m about to move to start my first job and I think this would be so perfect for preparing for my new busy lifestyle! I would totally make this salad but add carrots and substitute cashews!

  17. I’d love to win this set because my husband + I are on this new journey toward healthy/plant-based diet and meal prepping is our #1 struggle and be priority as we both work outside the home! Keeping good ingredients and efficient, easy to use products on hand is KEY for my lunch packing success 🙂

  18. I’ve been taking your “salad every day” challenge to heart, and a big part of that is meal prepping and planning ahead. I pack lunch every day for work (my coworkers KNOW not to invite me out ????), and I look forward to my colorful lunches. I would use this to pack a vegan hippie bowl from the Thug Kitchen! Lots of ingredients plus dressing that needs to stay separate – perfect for the brilliance containers to tackle!

  19. Ooh! Love this as a “grown up lunchbox.” I am a teacher and we have a chef at school who makes all the meals for he kids. As teachers we are welcome to eat the meals, too! While it saved me a ton of time and money last year eating what the kiddos did, it was not always the healthiest and was too repetitive. I have vowed to bring my lunch this year and this salad carrier is the perfect thing to get me motivated ???????? Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to try that sesame dressing!

    • Also, that little snack saver would be so perfect for my after school snack! A fruit or veg and healthy fat would keep me from mindless bingeing when I get home and tide me over until I can make dinner ????

  20. I have been looking for a container like this forever! I’m 14 weeks pregnant and always bring a salad and many snacks to work. It’s hard to find perfect containers, but this would fit the bill!

  21. I am a first grade teacher and I bring my lunch to school every day. Salads are my favorite, but definitely the most difficult to transport. I always end up bringing a big bowl to mix everything in and then I have to worry about washing that at school. Also, finding something that doesn’t leak is a must!! I agree with you, traveling multiple to meal prep with would be amazing. Also, I’m a fellow VA resident, so it would be amazing to win a giveaway from my favorite VA based blogger ☺

  22. I’m trying to focus on bringing my lunch to work instead of buying it each day and these containers would be a huge help! I’m all about any way to make it easy so I’ll stick with it!!

  23. This salad container is genius! I love keeping my salad simple with arugula, garbanzo beans, tomato, blue cheese, and a lemon vinaigrette.

  24. I would love to use this! This would be so useful during my last year as a graduate student in counseling because I am constantly going and coming from school, work and my internships! I would love to use these for my tempeh and tofu salads!

  25. I have salad every day for lunch and always struggle with how to pack it! Dressing makes the greens soggy and drowns out topping flavors, :9 this Tupperware looks like a life saver!! Would absolutely love to add it to my daily routine!

  26. I pack salads for lunch almost everyday, so would love to win these awesome containers! I made this salad recipe this week and it’s so delicious! I added chili garlic sauce instead of sriracha – so yum

  27. I just bought a bunch of Little lunch bento boxes for my daughters first day of kinder and was totally eyeing these for myself! What a perfect way to have a lunch ready to assemble and enjoy – especially for a busy mom who often goes all day on coffee and corn chips (yikes). I would probably pack this with my favorite salad : honey curried chickpea salad with apples, raisins, almonds and spring greens!

  28. I’d love to win because I’m a SAHM and I’ve been looking for a good way to prep a healthy lunch ahead of time so I’m not as tempted to just reach for chips when my kids are napping.

  29. This looks so good! I’d love to win because I’m new to meal prepping and trying to eat mindfully and healthy every day – and packing a delicious and healthy lunch is helping me get off the ground. This set would help so much! I’ve been making a corn and blueberry salad recently and am loving it. Thanks so much!

  30. Spill proof?? I drive my scooter to work and most other places so to have a sectioned, spill-proof salad container sounds like a dream (usually the bumps on the road shake things around and I get spills)! I would love containers like these because I’m on the journey of understanding what’s healthy for my body right now. Recently I learned some foods that I need to stay away from and basically I should be sticking to a Whole Foods based diet for a while. These would inspire me to create new things all the time, and I love salads! Would probably start by loading it with my favorite grilled chicken salad with lots of veggies and citrus balsamic vinaigrette – simple, yummy vinaigrette I came up with that uses only fresh pressed garlic, fresh squeezed orange juice, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and S&P to taste! So simple and everyone loves it!

    Sorry this message is so long 🙂 Lastly, I’m pretty sure I’d use that tote every day because Summer is my favorite season and I wish it was year-round! Thanks for always sharing amazing recipes!

  31. As a nurse, working 12 hr shifts at the hospital is energy draining and leaves me packing healthy lunches and snacks so I have a reliable way to refuel. I would absolutely cherish this set of plastic ware in my work lunches! ????????

  32. I would absolutely love to have this salad container to easily pack and tote my salads each day to graduate school! I have been looking for the perfect container with separate compartments and this is exactly what I’ve needed all along! Can’t wait to try this yummy salad also ????

  33. I so need this container! Packing my salads into 17 different containers to accommodate my greens, toppings, and dressing is excessive. I look like I’m going on a weekend vacation, but nah- it’s just my lunch! ????

  34. I think I’d Ben more motivated to make a healthy lunch if I had great containers! Lately at home I’ve been loving spinach salads with feta, apples, dried cranberries and balsamic dressing.

  35. I’m a college student and about to start my first year off of any meal plan, cooking all for myself. I have a history of restrictive food habits but am currently in great spot with recovery–trying to continue that momentum and find easy ways to stay nourished throughout the day! Would love to try these!

  36. Love this set! Between school, clinical and work it’s the perfect on the go organizer to keep me eating healthy! Super easy and useful!

  37. This detox salad looks amazing! I would love to win this Rubbermaid to-go container because salad is my jam! I think I could eat it for every meal! Especially if packing it with me would be made easier! I’ve been loving your corn, blueberry and chicken salad lately. It is so summery and satisfying! Keep creating amazing salad recipes- they are much appreciated! ❤

  38. As a busy high school math teacher, having a reliable Tupperware set is key. This set would make it easy to transport around my lunch from class to class, be spill free and encourage me to continue to pack healthy and well-rounded meals.

  39. I would love to win these! Working 12 hour shifts as a nurse, a hearty salad and multiple snacks is a necessity! Knowing I’m covered in the food department always motivates me for the long work day. I love to keep it environmentally friendly too!! 🙂

  40. What a delicious looking salad! I’d love to win this container so I could pack strawberry, pineapple, blueberry and spinach salads for work!

  41. These containers look awesome! I’ve been looking for a way to pack my salads (without making a huge mess or having soggy salads like I have been!)

  42. I would love to win this because I’m working on packing my lunch everyday to help with my health & my budget. I would pack this salad because it looks so good & filling!

  43. This looks delicious! I would love to use this to bring some of Costco’s amazing farro salad to work. I’m lazy when it comes to my salads and grains 🙂

  44. I have been making A Mediterranean salad with olives , 3 bean salad, & hummus – this would-help keep everything separate til I am ready to eat Bye bye soggy salad!

  45. I would love to win this set because as a Master’s student who is constantly in the go and rarely in the same place for lunch two days in a row, I have to get creative in how I pack my lunches, which are almost always meal sized salads. These containers are amazing because they keep everything separate but you don’t have a million different containers to deal with. I would totally pack this crunchy detox salad or EBF’s blueberry and corn salad with maple balsamic dressing, which I am currently loving and making at least once a week!

  46. I would love to win this link set to help keep me on track with healthy eating at work! I would bring a Mediterranean salad for sure – greens with crunchy chickpeas, hummus, marinated red onions and fresh veggies with a tahini drizzle and maybe a kofta in there too!

  47. I so want one of these. If I don’t win it, its going on my Chanukah wish list. I love packing salads and the different sections on this are perfect. Like that you can separate things like nuts or things I don’t want to get mushy until time to eat!

  48. This salad looks perfect for getting my hubby to eat healthier! He’s buying into eating “like a bird” more and more as I try out new salad recipes. I’d love to win the container because it’s great for pre-making salads to take in our RV. I’d rather be sitting enjoying the outdoors than in the RV prepping dinner!

  49. I would use this all the time- I love packing salads for lunch! Lately my favorite toppings are goat cheese, a peach, and balsamic vinaigrette 🙂

  50. Guaranteed leak proof? Sign. Me. Up.
    Summer is on it’s way out, I’m all about adding the strawberries and blueberries to my salads while they’re so tasty!

  51. Would love to win this because as a graduate student starting my internship, I find myself packing my lunch daily and always looking for healthy options to keep me going throughout the afternoon!

  52. Wow… that looks faaantastic!! If I won (not sure if it is open internationally?) I would pack THAT salad!! It would be perfect for lunches in the store where I work, where I don’t always have the the possibility to eat all at once so the separate “built in” compartment would be sooooo helpful!
    Thanks for a great site and beautiful recipes, and the fun opportunity to win! 🙂

  53. I would love to win because these perfect containers would keep me motivated to pack healthy lunches to work! Thank you for this opportunity Britanny!

  54. Such a lovely and functional little lunch container! I’ve searched for something like that for a long time- I always loved Japanese bento boxes, but only ever found smaller one for kiddos, so this is a welcome discovery!! Excited to try the salad, and for the opportunity to win such a handy product! 🙂

  55. Would love to win this set! I’ve recently changed my way of eating completely. I used to be the carb queen, but I wanted to be healthier and be a better role model for my 4 daughters. So I now eat a more protein, fat and complex carb-based diet. I’ve changed my life completely and eat a different salad for lunch every day. I love it! I’m still learning about putting yummy salads together. I get great ideas from EBF and love your emails in my inbox as part of my family’s health journey.

  56. I would love to win the BRILLIANCE Lunch salad/snack set because I pack lunches for work everyday. The BRILLIANCE lunch set would make packing my lunch so much more convenient than toting along 4+ containers to work every day. I also really like the design of the set.

  57. I’d love this container! I pack my lunch everyday and frequently bring a salad. I love the idea of keeping everything separate until it’s time to mix. This bag is so cute too! Hope I’m lucky 🙂

  58. This container would be helpful to keep produce fresh as I prep my lunches twice a week. I also like to top my salad with hot foods,protein or roasted veggies, so it would be great to keep them separated. I will definitely try this salad dressing, yum.

  59. I’d absolutely LOVE to win this because I am a super busy college student who packs my lunchbox every day for on the go! I am an athlete (and besides just loving healthy food)!know how essential it is for my day. The compartments and organization of this container is just what I need to lessen the stress of a jammed packed bag of all my elements! This would be SO awesome! And the tote is super cute too! ????

  60. I would love to win this set because I’ve been looking for an easy way to pack my lunches and most are salads. They always seem to get soggy! This seems to be a great solution.

  61. WOW! These containers look awesome! I travel for work and these would be great to ensure I’ve got great snacks and a healthy lunch salad! I try to pack healthy food every day so I don’t go for those “unhealthy’ options that are around our office. The first salad I’d make in it is the Crunchy Detox Salad you have here! It sounds wonderful!

  62. I want to win his because salad is my go to lunch and it’s not easy to lug into work without a good container like this one!

  63. I want four of these! All of us at my office are incorporating plant-based foods into our diets and bringing salads to work. I have a backyard garden and I can’t wait to pop my own tomatoes and kale in it. I love the versatility of your crunchy,\ packable salad – greens, grains, a fruit or two, nuts and seeds — with the dressing ready to go in a sealed container. Perfect. Plus, it would be great for the curried chickpea bowl with garlicky spinach! Sign me up — I’ll be looking for these Rubbermaid Brilliance lunch containers even if I don’t win.

  65. This is such a great idea! I’ve always struggled with packing salads in advance (i like to do my meal prepping all on sunday).

  66. These would be perfect for my lunches! I never take what I really want to eat because I don’t have the right storage containers.

  67. I’d love to win this, I’m off to university next month and I’ve been wondering what I’ll do for lunches now I won’t have the luxury of cooking something for myself from scratch every day! I’d love to make a lentil or tempeh based salad with it 🙂

  68. I would love to win this set because I have been looking for one like this for FOREVER!! It’s such a hassle to take 3 or 4 sperate containers to school each day 🙁 This salad will definitely be the first for me to try. Thanks xx

  75. This would be perfect to bring to work everyday! Any thing that makes being healthy a little easier is magical! I just bought this mix from Trader Joe’s too, I’m for sure going to try this. Instead of the Apple I’m going to try some beets!

  76. What a pretty salad! I always worry about packing things like apple and avocado in lunches, as they usually turn brown. I absolutely love lunch packing, and this is above and beyond my current set.

  83. LOVE the salad and the containers would fit perfectly in my office refrigerator. I am currently using baggies and tossing it into a bowl on the day I eat it. But I TOTALLY agree one cannot have TOO many salad recipes!

  84. Wow!Always looking for healthy food to take for lunch. Planning to give your salad a try! And love the rubbermaid container. It’s so perfect! I love your recipes! They taste so clean & yummy & fit my new OptaVia healthy lifestyle! Thanks for all your great ideas!

  85. I pack a lunch to bring to work everyday so having good containers to put it all in is key. Not to mention, every time I make lunch for my boyfriend, my supply seems to decline because they don’t seem to make their way back home. #Boys

    I absolutely love your grapefruit and hearts of palm salad. I’ve made it numerous times and everyone always comments how delicious it is! This crunchy detox salad also sounds delicious and is one I will have to try for sure! You always have the best salads =)

  86. I’d love this so much – I am constantly on the go because of my job and also have a ton of dietary restrictions (dairy, wheat, eggs, most oils and nuts) so this would be outstanding to pack salads that do not get soggy and allow me to bring multiple things with me. It’s very hard to try to dine out with my restrictions so this would be a life safer! It’s so cute too! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  87. I’ve been looking for the perfect container for my salads so I can get my homemade dressings in there easily, but without having to pack so many containers or having the dressing poured on the salad for too many hours. This design looks so clever, and what is great I see that it’s a deep container perfect for tossing the salad. Total win. Your detox salad looks absolutely delicious, so I would start with that one! Maybe throw some summer berries on top, too!

  88. Wow! This is so Great! The salad is a must for me to make.and those containers are awesome. Great to go containers. Thanks for sharing.

  89. I would love to win this – I often pack salads for my daughter and this would keep everything well sorted out! I’ve read your blog for years and have enjoyed many great meals from your recipes!

  90. You had me at spill proof container!! As a retired couple we watch our spending but still like to stay active & eat well. The possibilities are endless with good for us meals we can put together the night before and grab the next day to share wherever the day takes us.
    Thank you for this contest and good luck to all.

  91. What a wonderful giveaway! Thank you! I would probably try this crunchy detox salad. My husband and I have recently (like 4 days ago) started a plant-based nutratarian diet and this is a perfect salad! It looks delicious too.
    Thank you!

  92. Hey, such a great post!

    I bring almost every day a salad to work. My favorites are watermelon & feta and rucola with walnuts, feta and pear. But I simply love every salad. This giveaway is just perfect for me!

    Best, Sabrina

  93. I love the looks of this recipe along with the looks of the container!
    It is always a challenge to take salad ingredients to work. I will be making this crunchy salad and dressing!

  94. Mmm looks delicious! I’m always looking for ways to jazz up kale. I would sub the apples for peaches or cranberries due to allergies:s

    Meagan

  95. I’m a big fan of the cruciferous blend at Trader Joe’s! I’d love to win this container so I could challenge myself to make a new salad every single day in it!

  96. I just read about the Brilliance line yesterday, and now here’s a chance to win a starter set — thank you! I pack my lunch for work most days, and it’s usually a salad with several add-ins, so this would be perfect. I think this set could work really well for my kids’ school lunches and snacks, too.

  97. Thanks so much for sharing this! Can’t wait to try the salad and love the idea for the container! Since I take my lunch to work everyday, finding the perfect container has been a struggle. This looks like a great one!

  98. Looks so good! I’d love to win the set. I’m starting grad school next month and want to pack my lunches. Perfect for to-go meals for a busy schedule. I would use them for salads and snacks. 🙂

  99. First, thank you for this awesome giveaway. The containers will be perfect to take on road trips and on those busy mornings when a grab and go breakfast is in order.

  100. I certainly want to try this recipe. I’ve been on a restricted diet for about a year now to get healthy, and this fits right in with my meal plans. Also, I work multiple jobs, so bringing something nutritious that can be made in advance is always a necessity. I definitely need this container in my life! By the way, in my year of getting healthy, so far I have lost 42 pounds, decreased my high blood pressure, lowered the amount of insulin I use by 75% and was able to discontinue use of the insulin pump. Healthy can be achieved.

  101. These look so cool! I’ve recently been enjoying meal-size salads much more through both of your salad challenges! My favorite mix right now has to be spring mix, edamame, shredded carrots, chickpeas, radishes, and a lemony dressing! If I have sesame sticks, I add those, too.

  102. I would love to win these containers for my mom who works tirednessly as a teacher. I could totally see her making this salad and using these containers. Hope to win! 😉

  103. I would love to use this with any spring mix salad!!! I love this mix but unfortunately if you add anything at all in the container the salad gets so wilty by lunch!! And the hassle of packing a bunch of little containers is way too much work for me.

  104. I am excited to try out this recipe! It’s been pretty challenging making substantial changes in my diet and striving to consciously eat healthy. However, this page has provided me with numerous menu ideas to keep me on my toes and eating better. This salad will definitely be getting a test run for my lunch. It would be awesome to win the Rubbermaid Containers to pack it all in, too!

  105. How great is this for lunches on the go?! I would love to win for my husband who takes a lunch everyday. He would absolutely love it. He is trying to eat lighter for lunch and breakfast and this would be awesome.

  106. I’d love to use the containers to pack my lunch! There’s plenty of food trucks near where I work but I try pack my lunch most days. I love taking salads but always struggle with what containers I have to pack them in. I love kale salads massaged with dressing, always with feta cheese and chicken usually, or whatever else I have in the fridge.

  107. Mmm this sounds so yummy! I would love this salad set because I pack my lunch for work everyday and it seems super convenient! I’m not sure if this is technically salad, but I would love some pasta salad hah!

  108. This looks so good – cannot wait to try this recipe! Really happy I discovered your blog and Instagram – you post so many great things!

    • Oh and I’d love to win this Rubbermaid set so I can take my meal prepping game to the next level! I would definitely try out this crunch detox salad in the containers first!

  109. This salad looks awesome and that container would be the perfect thing for me to pack my lunches for school. I already have so much to carry with me it would fit perfectly in my backpack.

  110. This may sound strange, but I’ve been adding cottage cheese to my lunch salads. I mix spinach or kale with cottage cheese, an apple, roasted potatoes (and whatever other veggies are in the fridge), chia seeds and balsamic vinegar.

  111. I would make a Japanese ginger carrot dressing with a spiralized vegetable salad. I am always on the lookout for new and innovative forms of fridge storage so would love to try this!

  112. I love the idea of a salad container where you can separate all the parts in one container! I’m a teacher so I have to pack my lunch every day and it can be a pain to have so many different containers for one salad. Plus I love that these won’t link!

  113. What a great idea! I would first make this crunchy detox salad. Lately I have been craving asian dressings to this would be great. thanks! You are the expert salad maker.

  114. I would love to use these for my husbands lunches, he tends to eat a little unhealthy if I’m not packing lunch for him.

  115. I would love to win these containers for my lunch each day at work. I think they would also be great for my kids lunch as well.
    I love Caesar salad or even a garden salad with chicken.

  116. I love sweetgreen’s “Beets Don’t Kale My Vibe” salad, but they only make it for a few months of the year. I’d totally recreate it in this container; it’s kale, roasted beets, while rice, pecans, goat cheese, and balsamic dressing.

  117. I bring my lunch to work every day and I always prep them at the start of the week. They’re great for the first half of the week but towards the end, when things have just been sitting for a few days, they aren’t quite so good so this sort of container sounds perfect!

  118. I’m luckily enough to be able to eat lunch at home, but my husband’s not. He would love to take filling salads for lunch but the containers are always too bulky and there is limited space in his office fridge. This looks like the perfect solution!! I make a riff on Stella’s greek quinoa salad (we make frequent trips to Richmond when we can!) that he loves! I add either chicken or falafel patties for extra protein and baby kale that’s marinated overnight with some greek dressing. I load it down with fresh cucumbers, bell peppers, pickled and raw onions, olives and feta cheese. I’ll also add some toasted pita/naan chips for a little extra crunch.

  119. My lunches always consist of a series of snacks and packing multiple container makes me feel like a bag man at the end of the day with all the empties rattling around in my bag. This would make for a nice change!

  120. I’d love to win this because I take my lunch to work everyday and I’ll be heading back to school soon so it’d come in so handy! I have all the ingredients for your sesame ginger dressing so I’m going to give it a try next week. Looks delicious!
