Teacher shares the quick and easy hack she swears by to stop soggy salads forever

  • Lee Holmes, from Sydney, said you need to put an ice cube tray in your lunchbox
  • Recommends separating various foods out to avoid foods getting soggy

An ex-teacher and chef has shared why an ice cube tray inside a lunchbox is the ‘secret’ to avoiding soggy salads in your lunchbox.

Lee Holmes, from Sydney, said inserting an ice cube tray into your lunchbox and then putting your individual ingredients in each compartment means that nothing comes into contact with anything else and so it avoids being contaminated.

Then, all you need to do is unpack the salad when you get into the office and it shouldn’t be soggy.

‘Just use an ice cube tray inside a lunchbox and place your individual ingredients in each compartment. 

‘Then close the lid. Simples! It’s easy to transport, then when you get to work you have everything ready for a crispy, fresh salad.’

She added: ‘You can also use this hack for excess smoothies you have made and pour into the ice cube tray and freeze for next time. Just refresh with extra liquid’.

Lee demonstrated how the hack works with cucumber, parsley, tomatoes, onions and nuts in her lunchbox.

This isn’t the first time someone has shared a food hack to avoid soggy salad.

Previously, Amanda Meixner, from Ohio, said by filling a mason jar with your salad with the dressing at the bottom and lettuce at the top, your food should stay fresh overnight and pour perfectly onto a plate in the way that you want to eat it.

‘This is really the key to prepping a salad in advance but not having any of the ingredients get too soggy or wilted by the end,’ Amanda said in an Instagram video on her ‘hack’. 

‘I love adding in a can of veggies, add some protein and some fun stuff – I’ve done bacon here – and then top it with lettuce.

‘Then, when you’re ready to eat it, just shake up the jar, pour it on a plate and it comes out delicious.’

In this particular salad, Amanda layered Paleo ranch dressing, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, eggs, bacon and lettuce.

By keeping the lettuce at the top of the jar away from the dressing, she said she can easily make sure nothing gets wilted or spoiled.
