Dressing choices

Choose your favorite fat-free salad dressing. Delicate quinoa is best with a vinaigrette-style, or clear, dressing. Fat Free Champagne, raspberry, balsamic or Italian-style vinaigrette would all be great with this salad.

Salad Toting

Place salad in a bowl with a tight-fitting lid. Always pack your lunch in a cooler or insulated container, if possible. Keep food cold by including freezer packs, a sealed bag with ice, or a frozen beverage. Once you arrive at your destination, store food in a cool place. If possible, keep it in a refrigerator. If there is no refrigerator available, store the lunch out of the sun and away from heat like a heating vent or in a hot car.
