Anyone that knew me growing up knows that I absolutely refused to eat salads – they just weren’t exciting enough for me. Now that I’m getting older I have actually started to eat (and enjoy!) salads! It’s a good thing too because lately, thanks to several gallbladder attacks, I’ve been eating a lot more salads!! When I heard Lean Cuisine had a new product out called Salad Additions (4 flavors!) it really caught my interest! Not only because I’ve been eating more salads but a frozen salad (minus the lettuce of course!) is an awesome quick meal for school lunches and on the go!
I was curious if it would just be cheaper for me to get a salad at a quick restaurant or would it be cheaper for me to buy the lettuce and a box of the Lean Cuisine Salad Additions at Walmart?
You simply grab one of any of the 4 Lean Cuisine Salad Additions boxes found in your frozen food section along with some lettuce and you’ve got yourself a meal! I bought the Bistro Chicken flavor for myself and I bought the Southwest style Chicken salad for my husband.
At first I was just going to buy Romaine lettuce & greens but it was actually about the same price for me to buy a large package of organic green lettuce mix than to buy it all separate! I was surprised! The lettuce package was enough for at least 3-4 salads.
Then I just heated up the chicken package from my Lean Cuisine box and added it on top along with the dressing pouch! It was absolutely amazing and only took a few minutes to create. It was way more impressive than my attempts at eating restaurant salads too! I won’t lie, I might have licked the plate clean…more than once! I went back a few days later and bought some more – they are SO delicious! I’ve even bought a few for my husband to eat for his lunches since then as well. Compared to the price of eating a salad in a restaurant (and not even a sit down one!) I was really happy. It’s definitely cheaper to create my own Lean Cuisine salad based on the places that I ate – and it was much tastier and more predictable too!
