The 7 Most Essential Salad Containers

A wise salad sage once said that, "a salad is only as sad as it's container." Although we'd argue that toppings and dressing play a major role, we can't entirely disagree with the above container sentiment. Because this lunch staple can easily fall into the territory of meal monotony, any little extra oomph of inspiration helps. And just as chic makeup cases go a long way in maintaining our preferred beauty goods, sleek salad containers make us actually want to prep, pack, and eat those leafy greens.
So in order to keep our salad game strong, we rounded up the ten most essential containers for layering, stacking, and toting. The lineup of stainless steel tins, compartmentalised bento boxes, and two-in-one jar options ahead will have you presenting your desk lunches proudly — and, more importantly, will keep your sad salad scaries at bay.
