Shaken Salad


So, initially I had a whole other salad in mind. But since I was mysteriously missing a couple items and forgot to cook the chicken for it, I decided to run with something else! While my Monkey will eat salad I don't like to push it, I know she can get sick of them quickly if I make too many. However I like their versatility. 

  • Salad: Mixed Baby Greens, Peas, Cucumbers, Turkey ribbons.
  • Sunburst Tomatoes
  • Pineapple Skewers
  • Babybel Cheese
  • Not Pictured: Side of Ranch and Capri Sun 100% Juice Pouch
With this salad I simply took a container and put in a handful of mixed baby greens, cut up cucumbers, cut some turkey lunch meat ribbons (by rolling up the lunch meat and cutting across) and tossed in the leftover peas from dinner. Put on the lid and gave it a shake! I personally hate when all my salad mix-ins are on the top and by the time you get to the middle there's nothing left but lettuce. 

I know that Monkey will be a bit bummed that we were all out of her favorite dressing, Catalina. However, I know that she'll eat ranch and we threw a cute little sticker of a bunny on top of her dressing cup. She won't get it, but it was a joke at the fact most people call this sort of lunch ''rabbit food''. On the side is her napkin with her fork wrapped inside.

Happy Packing!


  1. Yum! I will have to try that salad for my girls!

    1. Thanks! Toss in whatever you've got handy! I think this could have used more peas.

  2. Oooh, that salad does look tasty! Yum! :)

    1. Thanks! I think they are more attractive than chunks personally.

  4. Scout will eat almost any salad as long as I don't try to dress it...I wish I had that problem, I love dressing. Catalina is one of my faves, too.

  5. Me too! I wish I didn't need dressing lol. Dry salad just doesn't appeal to me.

  6. Salad for lunch is a great idea, I might try this with tofurky.
