Note: Measure fillings/additions with your heart! The more fillings inside the salad, the more “dressing” it will need.
Important Note about Food Safety:
You shouldn’t use veggies that have mold on them or smell foul or bitter. They’ve likely gone bad, and should be added to your compost! For your greens, they’ve gone bad if they’ve turned a yellowish color and/or appear slimy.

Donating versatile foods that remain good for a long period of time are the perfect types of donations for food banks and pantries, like tuna! It’s also a great way to reduce food waste, especially considering around 35% of food produced in America goes unsold or uneaten – and 43% of that waste comes from households.
