Today I’m going to share with you a cool trick for how to dress a salad. I’ve used this countless times, and people always tell me how they can’t believe they hadn’t thought to do it this way!
Wait…what are doing?
Asked my husband as I was dressing a take out salad.
Um, dressing the salad?
Said me, looking at him, who was looking at me with amazement
That’s genius, why didn’t I ever think to do that?!
So of course I had to share: the perfect way to dress a salad is to put all the contents in a container, pour the dressing on the salad, close the lid….and SHAKE IT!
Just like the Taylor Swift song Shake it off , you’re going to shake the salad, just for a few seconds, you’re going to shake the container back and forth, and you’re going to be left with perfectly dressed salad!
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
This method works perfectly on take out salads, you won’t have some parts of the salad doused in dressing while others remain dry. This method also works on salads you bring to work in Tupperware containers. Really, any salad you want dressed perfectly and evenly, just put salad and dressing in a container, and shake it back and forth, and voila!
