Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A cookbook filled with a variety of creative salad recipes for some yummy ~inspo~ on making the best dang salad your taste buds ever met.


    Get it from Walmart for $16.88.

    2. A salad spinner to make cleaning your greens as easy as the twist of a knob. No really, all you have to do is twist the knob, and voila — they're washed!


    You can add and drain water without having to remove the lid. The clear base can be used as a serving bowl. It features an easy-to-turn spin knob, a non-skid base, and a 5 qt. capacity. Perfect for washing and spin-drying salad greens, fruits, and veggies. Plus, it locks to securely close the spinner.

    Get it from Walmart or Jet for $14.99.

    3. A slicer and dicer tool that'll make prepping all the ~elements~ of your salad — veggies, fruit, meat, cheese, etc., super easy. Never again will you have to skip out on an onion-filled salad from fear of tearing up while cutting.


    Comes with three interchangeable blades so you can perfectly chop, dice, and slice. Features a clear, non-skid base that catches cut up food and measure marks for up to 2 cups. It's BPA-free, and dishwasher-safe!

    Get it from Jet for $21.99 (originally $29.99).

    4. A 12-piece stainless steel colorful knife set for ensuring cross-contamination during salad prep (or all meal prep), is a thing of the past. And for making your kitchen look a bit more FUN!


    Color-coded knives mean reducing the risk of cross-contaminating food during prep. So perhaps, purple will be your chicken-cutting knife, while green will be your lettuce-chopping knife. Each knife comes with a matching blade guard and ergonomic handles. Plus, they're made with non-stick coating for easy slicing.

    Get it from Walmart for $25.14 (originally $29.99), or Jet for $16.32 (originally $38.99).

    5. A salad shooter to make you wonder why the heck your parents didn't have a fancy schmancy contraption like this when you were a stubborn little kiddo. Maybe THEN you would've actually wanted to eat your veggies!


    Perfect for slicing and shredding veggies, fruits, cheese, nuts, and more! Comes with interchangeable processing cones. Just point the shooter where you want your food to end up, and voila — no extra prep bowls needed! The food chamber can hold whole potatoes, zucchini, and more! The motorized base can be wiped clean, while all other parts are dishwasher-safe.

    Get it from Walmart for $41.99 (originally $54.99).

    6. A three-pack of food storage containers that'll keep produce extra fresh longer. That means you can prep veggies and fruit early in the week and still eat them super fresh later in the week.


    Containers keep moisture locked away to prevent food from spoiling, and regulate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide for an ideal produce environment. They're BPA-free and dishwasher-safe! BTW someone at BuzzFeed tried this out. Check out our review for the Rubbermaid FreshWorks Produce Savers.

    Get them from Walmart for $22.98, or Jet for $19.41 (originally $21.49).
