Salads may be my favorite food. Though junk food consumption and production appears to have been on the rise over the past two decades, it also seems like salads have become more popular. As a child, the only time I remember eating a salad was on steak night. My dad would grill out steaks, and we would bake potatoes and eat a traditional iceberg lettuce salad with ranch.
Over the years, I’ve tried hundreds of different salads at home, in restaurants, and abroad. I ate them almost every day for lunch when I was pregnant, which significantly helped with monitoring weight gain during pregnancy. Currently I eat them all throughout the week and love changing up the ingredients and dressings.
When Fresh Express Salad asked me to review their products, I did not hesitate. My entire family and I have been using Fresh Express Salad products for a very long time. I love that their products are thoroughly washed, rinsed, gently dried, then sealed for freshness. Products run between $2 and $4 a bag, and if you eat only organic, they have an organic line as well.
My sister introduced me to sweet butter lettuce. This type of lettuce is slightly sweet, flavorful, and the perfect size for a bite. This is my favorite type to use for everyday salads such as the one below. Brooks, my five-year old, has finally started eating salads, and he loves sweet butter lettuce.
My other favorite product from Fresh Express Salad is spinach. Whether I mix it with other lettuce for a salad, saute it as a side dish, or include it as part of a juice, I’m definitely a fan of spinach. Since being enthralled with a juice cleanse I did in January, I’ve begun juicing at home. My sweet mom bought me a juicer, and it’s extremely easy to use. Below are the ingredients for a simple and tasty juice (carrots, Granny Smith apples, and spinach).
You can join the Fresh Express 30-Day Salad Swap which allows you to recreate your favorite high-calorie meals as a healthy, low-calorie salad. It’s free and great for families who are trying to make healthier choices. The swap encourages you to swap one meal a day for a healthy, salad-based meal. This one small change does wonders for the body.
I also wanted to let you know about a printable Fresh Express Salad coupon that will save you .$55 on a any bag of salad or salad mix.

Salads are so filling and nutritious – as long as you don’t add too much ‘bad’ stuff to it! I love putting grilled chicken (or steak) along with egg and sunflower seeds. So delicious and healthy.

Janeane Davis says
I buy these salads all the time for my family. I like that they are ready made and can easily be mixed with my own additives.
I love salads, but make my own more often than I buy a bagged salad. That said, I DO enjoy the convenience of a bagged salad and do purchase them, especially when I’m running late for dinner. Fresh Express is my favorite!
We love the Fresh Express Salad bags. They are great for a quick lunch.
I love salad kits. So much easier then making it yourself.
Fresh Express is our favorite brand of salad in a bag to purchase. Delicious & nutritious!

I find those bagged salads so convenient. Plus, they’re portioned in good amounts to last a few days.
April @ My Real Food Family says
We’ve been using Fresh Express salads for years. I love, love, love spinach salads. It’s a big part of my real food diet.
That salad looks great. I really want to try one of those Green smoothie drinks just so I can say I tried it LOL!
I want to try a green drink. They look delicious to me.
And hurrah for salads, they’re the most diverse dish on the planet. 🙂
Jenni Polly Eaves says
I’ve tried the Fresh Express Salad mixes before. The bags of salad are so much easier because they’re already prepared. Usually much cheaper too! I crave salad in the summer months. I’m glad it’s on the way!
I love Fresh Express salads. I eat them a lot for lunch. Depending on the day I add all different kinds of things in there to jazz them up.

It’s nice to know that some companies make healthy and easy foods. I am with you. I LOVE salad!

I must confess I have 4 bags of salad in my fridge and a bag of spinach. I may need help!
Bagged salads are so convenient! I usually buy at least one a week.

I love using Fresh Express salads! They make putting a salad together so easy!
We grab a bag of Fresh Express salad mix every week for our dinners. We like to do a side salad for things like hamburger steak, pizza, or spaghetti.
THese look so good! I need to start eating more salad I was so horrible with my eating habits this week.
Lauren (Lolo) says
That does look so yummy and fresh!
We LOVE Fresh Express Salad in our house. When we go to the grocery store we’ll probably pick up around 4 bags of the stuff. One of shredded lettuce and the other three different varieties of salads to have throughout the week.
