It's nice to be able to take a night off from cooking or deciding what to eat. Prep a nice salad bar ahead of time and use it whenever you need to. Salad bar image from Instructables/MichaelIM2015
Sometimes, you just need a night off from preparing dinner. Even if you're the type to plan your weekly meals ahead of time, it's nice to have a backup in case something comes up at the last minute. It doesn't take long to prep some items for a delicious salad, so you can throw it together on a Sunday evening and use it any day of the week ahead. Instructables user MichaelIM2015 gives us some ideas for what to include, but obviously you can do your salad up however you and your family like.
The trick is just to keep the different items sealed in their own containers or baggies so they stay fresh and so that each person can put on their salads exactly what they like. It's also a great idea for when you plan to have guests over and want to spend less time cooking.
