Food Storage Salad Bar - Yummy, Yummy!



One of the easiest ways to encourage your family to eat canned food storage is to create a food storage salad bar. There are so many possibilities with some great nutritional value and no one ever thinks they are eating food storage. It's fun to go to the food storage pantry to select salad toppings and a favorite dressing!

Food Storage Salad Bar, Yummy, Yummy!
Serves 6

1. 12 cups of fresh healthy spinach, or mixed salad greens, in bite-sized pieces.



2. Next, go wild! Open up about 5 or 6 canned foods from the list below, and dump them into some plastic containers with lids. Chill.
3. Then when it's time to eat, put the containers and greens on the table and let each family member choose what they want to top their salad with. Keep any leftovers in the refrigerator for the next day.
4. Top with your favorite dressings. Another food storage item!

  2. So glad I found your blog!!! I hope it's okay with you that I am using your ideas on our ward bulletin for the next five weeks to help the members of our ward get their food storage started! I will add a tagline that says "Ideas taken from (and list your blog address)."

    Thank you for making this seem like a task that can be accomplished!!!
