We started our Paleo/Primal diet journey in August 2013. Our journey to eating healthier has been a fantastic one! One of our weekly family meals is salad. It is a quick, easy, healthy and tasty meal. And thanks to the Fresh Express 30-Day Salad Swap it's a fun meal too!

This app was created by Fresh Express and provides families with instant access to an extensive library of recipes and salad swaps, a progress tracker, motivation, inspiration and even Fresh Express coupons. It's the perfect way to eat and feel better this year!

About Fresh Express Salad:
We received free product coupons from Fresh Express Salad for the purpose of this review. Fresh Express has been in business since 1989. They created the very first ready-to-eat garden salad available in grocery stores nationwide. Today, Fresh Express is the leader in delivering delicious, nutritious, fresh salads to healthy consumers. The brand has an amazing selection of fresh salad mixes, complete kits, and wholesome, USDA-Certified organic products.

For our Fresh Express salad buffet dinner night we tried out the Spinach, Caesar Salad Kit and Farmers Garden. We found the salad at our local Publix store and there was a wide selection to choose from. I cooked up some bacon and cut up an assortment of toppings and our salad buffet was ready to go in less than 20 minutes. And because Fresh Express salads are thoroughly washed, rinsed, and gently dried I was able to just open the bags and serve. The bags are patented "Keep-Crisp" breathable bags so they the vegetables keep their just-picked freshness, without any nasty preservatives.

My husband had the Spinach Salad. He said it was crispier and better tasting than the brand I normally buy. Our bearded dragon also had the spinach for dinner and gobbled it right up! We had some salad leftover so we just folded the top down and places a clip on the bag. I was delightfully surprised at how crisp it remained over the next few days.

The kids had the Cesar Salad Kit. The kit included dressing, cheese and croutons. They both agreed that the salad was very tasty and they each went back for seconds. These salad kits are perfect for a quick meal or even an on-the-go meal! Because eating out has become more difficult for us (it is very hard to find healthy fast food) we often take salad with us on our adventures. Gwyn loved the salad so much she even made herself a breakfast salad the next morning. Her creation was a Cesar Salad topped with grapes, oranges and ranch dressing!

I had the Farmer's Garden Salad. This salad comes Butter Lettuce, Red Leaf Lettuce, Grape Tomatoes, Carrots, Radishes. I agree with my husband, the salad was much crispier and fresher than our normal brand! I tend to go with Spinach normally as my salad choice, but I really wanted to try something a little different and I am glad I did. The butter lettuce is divine!

I highly recommend Fresh Express Salads. They are healthy and great tasting. Salad is the perfect healthy dinner for those busy days...you know the ones I'm talking about moms!
