Create Your Own Salad Mix

November 29, 2016




I am going to go ahead and make a bold statement. Lettuce is boring. Don’t get me wrong, I love my romaine, but I can only eat so much of it as my salad base before I am thoroughly over it. Gals, I am seriously done with it. BUT, do you know what I do love? Salad mixes. Those four dollar Taylor Farms pre-made mixes are fabulous, but I’d also like to have money for other fun things – books; date nights; and, let’s be real, shoes. So when my romaine lettuce salads failed me – or rather, I failed them – I decided to make my own. This mix makes three huge containers full of salad – enough for 3 weeks, and it hasn’t gone bad yet. Fingers crossed. It also took me about ten minutes to throw together and packs more vitamins and nutrients into my regular bowl. I used my food processor, which is by far and away my favorite kitchen appliance. If you don’t have a food processor, you can feel free to chop the ingredients by hand instead. It’s just a little more difficult and time consuming. More power to you! Either way the result is epic and you have a spectacular base mix to help make you lunch prep process a cinch. My life has been changed and there is no going back. Sorry, not sorry Romaine.

XOXO – Emily

Create Your Own Salad Mix


  • 1 Pound Brussel Sprouts, Raw
  • 1 Bunch of Celery Stalks
  • 1 Head Red Cabbage
  • 2 Heads Romaine Lettuce
  • 1 Bag of Chopped Kale


  1. In a food processor, with your slicer attachment, shred the brussel sprouts to your desired degree of thickness. If you don't have a food processor, you can chop them by hand.
  2. Chop the cabbage roughly into small pieces. Shred in the same way as the brussel spouts with your food processor.
  3. Chop celery.
  4. Chop romaine lettuce, tossing the ends of the leaves.
  5. Combine ingredients together.
