  • I buy the packaged salads and add in extra veggies. If we were to buy all of the lettuces in the bag I would be throwing out at least half a head of each of them, this way I'm not wasting food.

  • Packaged, because it saves time. I prefer fresh though.

  • both. i usually add to the packaged salads, anyway. i like chunky pieces in my salad (vegetables, fruits,etc). i do end up spending more money if i make fresh,but fresh always tastes better.

  • I buy packaged it keeps me from adding stuff I do not need.

  • I only buy packaged spinach so I can throw it in a bowl already washed. The other salads, I make myself.

  • We use our garden and make it fresh, if the garden isnt ready we buy the pre pack greens and add our own other stuff.

  • Make my own. The packaged always gets slimy and gross too quickly. Plus, you get more from a head of lettuce then you do from on package of mixed.
