How to Lay Layers

Layering a Bowl to Enjoy all Week

The key to preventing a soggy salad through the week is  layering by weight!
Putting the heaviest ingredients on the bottom and the lightest on the top prevents sogginess.
Not cutting tomatoes, which are watery, also preserves a salad.
Placing lettuce on top keeps it dry and crunchy.
Adding on dressing, salsa, avocado and Greek yogurt right before eating keeps everything crisp.
