Homemade Salad Mix In A Bag is perfect for meal planning. Preferred salad ingredients are combined in a zippered bag and refrigerated until ready to use.
The beauty of this method is each bag of salad mix can be made according to preference. Good for picky eaters.
My aunt loves tomatoes in her salad. I do not. We both LOVE salads, but with different mix-ins.
Homemade Salad Mix In A Bag truly saves time for this busy food blogger when it’s time to make a quick lunch or side dish with a big meal.

What are grape tomatoes?
According to thekitchn.com, grape tomatoes are oblong, shaped like grapes and have a thicker skin than cherry tomatoes. Their flesh is meaty and not watery.
Grape tomatoes are sweet and flavorful like cherry tomatoes. They are oblong in shape and a bite-size favorite in salads. Many enjoy them as a snack.
What are cremini mushrooms?
Most edible mushrooms are of the same variety which is Agaricusbisporus, according to Wikipedia. This variety includes portobello, cremini, and white button mushroom.
The cremini mushroom is a moderately mature version of the white button mushroom and has a similar flavor. Younger than the portobello which is why they’re also sold as “baby bella” or “baby portobello” mushrooms.
Cremini mushrooms have a dark brown color, firmer texture, and taste better than white mushrooms (my opinion).
Homemade Ranch Dressing is splendid on this salad. Recipe below. It is my twist on an original recipe by Allrecipes. Serve with croutons, crackers or garlic bread. Pairs well with Pan-Seared T-Bone Steak.
