Whenever there is a family gathering, I’m asked to bring a salad, as I love to experiment with different combinations. A big bowl of fresh lettuce and veggies topped off with a tasty dressing makes for a great start to any meal!
I was asked if I wanted to test some ET TU salad kits and I immediately said yes. I’ve seen them in grocery stores over the years but I had never tried them out, so I was definitely curious about them. A few days later, I received two Family Size salad kits – one Italian Balsamic and one California Honey Dijon. We were having the whole family over for a pasta dinner, so I decided to make both of the salads at the same time:
The Italian Balsamic Kit contains:
- Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
- Toasted Almonds
- Sun-dried Tomatoes
- Multi-grain Croutons
The California Honey Dijon Kit contains:
- Honey Dijon dressing
- Toasted Almonds
- Calabrese Croutons
Assembly: All I needed to do was add all of the ingredients from each of the kits to a bowl of fresh lettuce or mixed greens, toss and serve. It was so easy that my older nephew had a chance to “cook” with me : )
Both salads were easy to put together and I had appetizers on the table in minutes. At first glance, I was concerned that the portion sizes for the toppings and dressing were too small. However, after mixing up the salads, I was impressed to see that there was enough dressing to cover all of the lettuce and the toppings were nicely scattered throughout. Everyone enjoyed both flavours and said that they would definitely love to have the salads again. These kits are great for those who are “salad challenged” or for busy families who are looking for a quick and convenient appetizer option.
Want to know how much my family loved the salads? Here’s my cute little nephew with one of the empty bowls : )
Have you tried an ET TU kit? What did you think?
