Dole Salad Kits: Are they any good?

By Mike Thayer

Yes, they are....

So I acquired a bunch of coupons for free Dole Salad Kits, I've never had one before so I said to myself, "Self, might as well give this Salad Kit thing a try, it's not going to cost anything."

And so off to the store I went for a 'ready made' salad.

The kits are marketed to your sense of convenience, that "I don't have time (a.k.a. too lazy?) to make a good salad" mindset.  Dole has done a good job playing to that, creating a nice variety of salad and flavor combinations.  From classic Caesar to Sesame Asian, Dole pretty much has variety in salad covered. 

Salad Kit  SouthwestI went with the Southwest Salad.  From the package:  "A Zesty blend of Tex-Mex flavors, this salad combines Cheddar Cheese and savory tortilla strips with crunchy iceberg, romaine and Dole's Taco Ranch Dressing."

It was quite tasty!  The kit came in a 13 ounce bag and made two large salads.  It was easy to put together, as the bag plainly reads, "Just pull apart and enjoy."

The average price for a kit is $4.29 at area grocery stores and while I could buy all those ingredients for around $10 and make far more salads, the convenient, time saving kits have merit.  Another reason to buy:  If you're like me and just crave a salad every once in awhile....  Buy the kit.  It beats letting a half head of lettuce and some other veggies spoil in the fridge.

It's not a lazy thing at all, it's a repeat buy.  I'm giving the Dole Salad Kits 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars and I look forward to sampling the other varieties.
