Salad meal prep takes the time and effort out of putting a salad together. Oh, you'll be so stoked to have these healthy meal preps ready for lunch or dinner!

Luckily for meal prepping, there are countless combinations of vegetables, fruits, pasta, meats, and more that can be considered a salad. It can be a bit overwhelming, and that's kind of why people often get into a rut with salad, or sometimes skip it altogether.

Why Salad Meal Preps?
