Friday Favorites is another almost weekly feature here at Simply Budgeted. The whole point of this feature is to share some of our favorite finds. Anything is game. Food. Cleaning supplies. Kid stuff. Garden favorites. Recipes. Anything that I really like and want to randomly post about. Reminder/Disclaimer/Whatever: Everything in Friday Favorites is something that we use and bought on our own.

Our Thoughts …
We try not to do many salad mixes but this one was a great time savers so we had to share. We did pork tacos the other night (recipe to come … I think!) Brian decided they shouldn’t be regular lettuce tacos and saw this at the store so this was our “lettuce”. He just mixed the dressing and then the cabbage salad was all ready to go. We didn’t use the almonds or the chow mein noodles that came with the salad mix. The good thing was the kids at this up like crazy. No leftovers were nice since I tend to do dishes and putting away leftovers. Brian did mention that next time he gets this he could see trying to put his own dressing together to avoid the preservatives in the provided dressing.
