Bagged Salad, gag me!!!

Calipoutine | Sep 12, 200807:06 AM     59

I dont understand why people buy bagged salad. Yeah, ok, its handy, but man, does the taste and smell not negate any time factor benefit?

The smell that hits you when you first open a bag is just disgusting( but, I have an acute sense of smell). The taste is nasty too. So many of the mixes are filled w/ iceberg( which isnt that bad, it has its purposes) too.

Yesterday at work, I made a huge salad and I served 35 people with it. I have tons leftover too. I used 6 organic romaine hearts( 6.00), 1 head of iceberg( for crunch)(.99), 1 seeded english cucumber( .79), 3 field tomatoes(79lb). 1 small head of red cabbage( .50), 3 red peppers( 1.00), 1 red onion( .50), 1 bag of preshreeded carrots( these dont smell( 1.99) and a small container of goats feta cheese(3.49)

The salad is awsome and it will keep for at least 3 days( without the soggy tomatoes) in the fridge.

Speak to me.......
