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.

      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.

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

      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!
