Our best salad dressing container tips.

Back in the old days, when we used to take our lunch with us to work (ah, those halcyon days…), it won’t surprise you to find out that sandwiches weren’t our natural go-to. We much prefer a stew, pasta dish, or salad; the latter, particularly in the summer.

Do you have soggy leaf syndrome?

But salads are tricky tinkers to transport. Unless you’re on the strictest health kick ever (and therefore have much more willpower than me), you will want a little dressing over the top of your lettuce to make it, you know, not taste like lettuce. But if you put that on when you leave the house then you will definitely be welcomed by soggy leaves come 1 pm.

Now that a lot more of us are at home, we’re still looking to save time and will often prep lunch before work starts, so we can grab it out of the fridge when we’ve got 20 (ok, maybe 5) minutes. And we’re met with the same salad problem. So here are our best salad dressing container tips…

The solution…

So, what to do? (Clue: eating sandwiches was not the answer I was looking for)

You know when you’ve got to the end of a jar of very delicious strawberry jam and you wash it out, and conscientiously pop it in the recycling? STOP!

You know those tiny pots that come with the multi-pack of Tupperware you bought? The one’s that you looked at and thought “well, that’s totally pointless” and shoved to the back of the cupboard? GO FIND THEM!

Pre-Prep your salad dressings and get crispy

These are the best salad dressing containers you’ll find and are your path out of the world of disappointing wilting spinach. Mix up your dressings at the beginning of the day when you make your salad (or at the weekend while you’re prepping your lunches for the next few days), and pour them into these tiny pots. They’ll keep in the fridge for 5 days! Then, you can take them out when you’re hungry, drizzle them over your lunch, and eat it all nice and fresh – and crisp.

You’re welcome!
