My kids actually like salad, and we eat it quite often. They mix salad dressings like other kids mix soda. But, when we have leftover salad it is so difficult to keep it fresh. I found a little trick to keep it fresh longer. Place a dry paper towel in a gallon size zip lock bag with the salad. It soaks up the moisture and it won't get sticky slimy!! You can do this with cut veggies like carrots and green peppers.
