My mom has been on a salad kick. It’s her new love language. Whenever I go to visit her, she offers me a salad. She’s discovered the health benefits of having easy access to a salad in the fridge. Her salads are loaded with delicious, flavorful, simple ingredients. And so I’ve been inspired to do a quick, easy salad meal prep for you!
This post is not sponsored. I am simply sharing a ton of products that I truly love. They all make prepping meals fast, easy, and tasty!
The Super Greens by Organic Girl
I chose to use the Super Greens from Organic Girl. It’s a mix of red and green swiss chard, tat soi, arugula, and spinach. Feel free to use whatever greens you usually keep in your fridge. I happen to like this mix, because it holds up throughout the week and tastes fresh, even when I’m eating the last salad that I’ve prepped. In Hawai’i, I buy my Super Greens from Foodland.
I do encourage trying different greens and blends to find what pleases your palate the best! The boxed, pre-washed varieties are really the fastest when meal prepping.
The Love Beets
I was never into beets as a kid, but have learned to really like them as an adult. I’m a sucker for Love Beets, which I buy at our local Costco. They are cooked and ready to eat. All you have to do is cut open the package, slice your beets and enjoy them! It doesn’t get easier than that.
Besides that, you can’t beat the nutritional benefits of beets. They’re supposed to be good for your liver, help lower bad cholesterol, are high in iron which is great for fighting fatigue and anemia, and have a whole host of other great health benefits.
Paisley Farm Four Bean Salad
So, here’s a little secret: I don’t put dressing on this salad. I don’t have to, because the Four Bean Salad adds so much flavor from the vinegar and sea salt. There is sugar in there, so if you’re watching your sugar intake, feel free to omit it.
I discovered Paisley Farm’s Four Bean Salad at Costco years ago. It comes and goes from the shelves at the Costco stores here in Hawaii, so I stock up when I see it. It jazzes up any meal, but I particularly enjoy a small scoop of it on salads.
Local Eggs, Tomatoes, and Onion
Finally, I used local ingredients for the rest of the salad. Waialua Eggs, Sensei Farms Lana’i Mini Tomatoes, and Maui Onions. Fresh and tasty, it’s always great to support local farmers when possible. All of these products were found at Foodland, here in Hawaii.Print

Meal Prep Containers
I can’t forget the containers! Here’s a link to them. I did want to mention that I bought them from Amazon, and they come in a pack of 50. I think the 28 oz size (used for this post) is good for a variety of meals. They are reusable, and super convenient for storage, as they are stackable.
You can also use them if you’re making food to give to other people in your life, like my mom does with her salads. Who knows…I may have to make this my love language, too. Stay tuned for more salad meal prep ideas…strictly lacto-ovo pescatarian stuff, cause that’s just how I roll!
