Welcome to Discuss Cooking. I adore veggies & am a big salad fan. Re the leafy ingredients and transporting - I find lettuce etc gets limp. I would stick with crispy veggies added to a pasta salad. You can bring the dressing on the side, so the salad isn't soggy/wet, and add the dressing when you're ready to eat. Put the pasta sald in a zip lock. Use cherry tomatoes rather than sliced, raw veggies like broc, cauliflower, carrots, onions, celery, cucumbers, or sliced beets & chickpeas - add shredded cheese of choice, if you like. If you want a little more crunch, bring along a baggy of flavored croutons. Add ins could be cooked shredded chicken, etc. Try a classic Waldorf or Nicoise with tuna. Crisp sliced apples and walnuts are a yummy addition. Check out the veggie catagory and salads in this forum. The possibilities are endless. Happy salad eating.
