Salt will draw out the juices from the lettuce and greens. That's why when making a salad, you should add the salt at serving time or the salad will be wilted.

I make a up salads for individual servings, ahead of time. I usually make four at a time and this requires a lot of chopping and cutting up celery, peppers, onions, eggs, etc. at one time.

I use the Snyder's of Hanover pretzel pieces, the Buttermilk Ranch flavor. The cost is about $1.00 for a 10 oz. bag. DH likes these better than the more expensive croutons from the grocery store.

When my family and I make a salad we put in into a plastic bag (we use the ones that we put our veggies or fruit in at the grocery store). Put on dressing and shake up the bag this get all the dressing every piece and you use up less dressing.

Let lettuce dry completely before adding dressing to it. Dressing clings better to dry lettuce.

Prep veggies for salads when you come home from the store. Tuck a dry paper towel into the baggie to absorb extra moisture. Green onions, lettuces, mushrooms, and shredded carrots are easy to add to salads this way.
