Dressing Romaine Salad in Advance?

arielleeve | Sep 29, 2013 08:38 PM

So normally when we take salads to work for lunch, we bring separate little tupperwares for dressing so that we can add it at the last minute. This is usually a pain because our tupperware selection means either we take a bulky jar or a small tupperware that invariably leaks. Nevertheless, we make it work when we have to. Tomorrow, however, I made a salad with romaine lettuce, green beans, and cannellini beans. I was going to do just lemon and juice and olive oil as the dressing. I'm thinking that since romaine is a sturdier lettuce and there is nothing too delicate in the salad, maybe I can get away with dressing it in the morning before we leave? It would sit in the dressing for just 4 or so hours in that case. Do you think that it will still turn out soggy, or would this be okay?

ETA: Also looking for recommendations for small, leak-proof containers in which to transport salad dressing to work :)
