    I like them for lunch and try to eat 2- per week. I also attempt to get my 18 year old son to enjoy them twice a week-they have to have meat tho πŸ™‚

  2. Heather Urry

    Pretty much every night. Even if it’s just green leaf lettuce torn up with a splash of dressing and nothing else, we try and incorporate ‘salad’ as much as possible.

  3. Cassidy

    We eat salad several times a week. Sometimes as a side and sometimes we add lots of goodies and make it the meal.

  4. Staci A

    We try to eat salad a few tims a week. I love to top my salad with bbq chicken, black beans, corn, and salsa. Yum!

  5. Heather H.

    I eat salads a lot but haven’t been eating them as much as of late. I have been craving a blackened salmon salad lately. I might indulge!

  6. Bethany B.

    Love salads! I don’t eat them nearly enough… this prize would be such a great incentive to get me back in the habit! πŸ™‚

  7. Susan D.

    I eat salad at least 3 days a week!
    It’s so easy to mix it up, so it’s not the same old thing every time!

  8. Serena F.

    I find myself eating salad at least once a week. My husband LOVES a hearty salad and I LOVE any salad. MMM

  9. Keshakeke

    My family LOVES salad! Of coarse I have picky eaters so I have to adjust the things I put in them! It is an easy dinner! Served with warm from the oven cheese bread:)

  10. Sean

    I eat salad about three times a week, mainly as a side to my main entree. They are healthy and delicious.

  11. Alina

    Well, seeing as I’ve lost about 35 pounds in about six months, I can safely say I eat salad quite A LOT! I do love to add a splash of lemon on mine.

  12. We eat salad every other night! Rotating in A veggie the other nights πŸ™‚ you can do so many yummy things with salad and our babies love it too!

  13. Debbie Romano

    I typically eat a mixed greens salad with lunch and dinner, mixing the veggie “extras” I add to them regularly. But, I am part of a group of 8 woman who get together monthly and host a girls night with a different food theme from fondue to sleepover foods. With summer coming hosting a Dole salad party would be a fabulous theme when all of us girls with families and always looking for new fresh heallthy quick meal alternatives for those always busy days and nights!

  14. Janelle Belka

    We love salad at our house. We especially love it in the spring/summer months when we can put all kinds of yummy berries in it.

    We eat salad with Holidays and parties. Love baby spinach and strawberry! My kids LOVE salad too. My 3yo takes one to lunch at preschool every week!

    I buy plenty of salad ingredients during my weekly trips to the grocery, we try to be creative, and love fresh in-season veggies!

  21. Marcia

    I eat salad 3-4 times a week. I wish my whole family would join me! They will eat salad 1-2 times a week. My husband would rather get his pineapple in an upside-down cake!

  22. Salad is something I crave when the weather warms up. So, not much during the winter but often at least once a week in the summer.

  23. Shelly

    We eat salads 3-4x a week with dinner and with the summer coming it will be more often with all of the fresh veggies!!!

  24. Ruth

    At my home, we eat salad every day, so I’m always looking for creative ways to change things up in order to keep it fresh and exciting.

  25. Corisa

    When we eat salad it will usually be when we have a family dinner! Every few weeks usually, but I do love salad bars at grocery stores !

  26. Oh I love Salads!! We eat a side salad with our dinners a couple times a week. But during the warmer months, that easily become the Main Entree.

  27. BJ

    Once to twice a week. Very important to instill good eating habits to my 8 year old.
    Would love some new salad recipes. πŸ™‚

  28. We eat salad probably 2-3 times a month. I’m surprised we don’t eat it more, because our kids love it (not sure how that happened!) but we definitely have it more in the summer.

  29. Audra Bell

    I eat salad for breakfast everyday. Its quick and easy and it helps me to get in more fruit and veggies through out my day.

  30. Nee Nee

    I eat salad at least 3 times/week – sometimes it’s the main dish, sometimes it’s an added boost!

  31. Jennifer Valentine

    Thank you for the chance to win!!
    We eat salads about 5 times in a week, but they range from a very detailed salad to tossed cucumbers, red onions and fresh tomatoes with a vinaigrette dressing over it! Salads helps to keep your dinner fresh and tons of vitamins!!


  32. Lori Connors

    Salad is a must at our house at least three-four times per week. Just planted spinach on a pot that is on my deck. Nothing greater than going out and snipping off leaves to add to my bowl:-)

  33. Holly

    Not as much as we should but we try to eat very healthy! This would give us the inspiration to do it more often!

  34. Since it’s tax season, and it’s been tax season for SO LONG, I don’t even remember what a normal, non-tax-season day at my house is like. As it is, I have salad once or twice a week, and my husband loves to take those Dole salad kits to have for lunch and dinner while at work.

  35. Andrea D.

    I try eat eat salad a couple of times a week but not as the main meal. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  36. pamela

    Salad is always a side dish around here, year round….Summers find salads as main meals espcecially wi grilled meats……

  37. Hilary

    I’m a big old fan of salad, so I probably eat it about 4 times a week! The husband on the other hand, I have to sneak vegetables into his food! πŸ™‚

  38. Misha

    I am on Weight Watchers, so at least 4 times a week. My family laughs at me, but most veggies are zero points!! Yummy, filling, and low fat!!

  39. Kathy

    We try to have a salad almost every night. We have been watching what we eat, so try to get as many veggies into our diet. Salad is an excellent way to do this.

  40. Christy

    I honestly eat salad every single day for lunch and dinner. Either with those meals or as a meal. I LOVE all kinds of salad greens and fruits too!

  41. Kate

    Definitely don’t eat salad as much as I should – partly because I HATE chopping vegetables – gosh I’m lazy! πŸ™‚

  42. Beth

    When I’m on a diet, every day. When I’m not, hardly ever. Maybe that’s why I’m back on my diet again. πŸ™

  43. Crystal

    We eat salad several times a week–we LOVE salads & I’m always looking for new recipes, so I would LOVE to win this!

  44. Well, I eat salad all the time actually. In summer I prefer cold/room temp ones and in Winter (which is still here) I love warm potato pesto salad, potato pasta salad etc..

  45. Sarah F

    At least 2-3 times a week. On a good week I will have a salad every day for lunch. I would like to eat more salad.

  46. HI!

    Unfortunately we only eat salad about once every two weeks! How sad! I am trying to incorporate it a little more into our lunch and dinner routine!

  47. Rebecca

    Since January 3, 2012, I joined Weight Watchers Online and have discovered that salads are a filling, wonderful way to not “rack up the points!” Currently, my husband and I have salad every other evening, if not every night. I even traveled to one of our favorite Japanese restaurants and purchased their homemade salad dressing (which is also low on points). Grilled chicken and pine nuts are great add-ins as protein sources…we’d love to win the party to introduce the salad-goodness to others!

  48. Kathleen Conner

    During cold months about once a week. By the time it’s hot out, it’s probably 4 times a week.

  49. I’d have to say 4-5 times a week. Often a big salad is what we have for lunch. I pull out whatever veggies, meat, lettuce and spinach we have in the fridge and make delicious salads.

  50. Robin

    We eat salad all the time. We have it for side salads, or as the entree. I finally figured out that adding steak to it will make it a suitable dinner meal for my hubby!

  51. Marie W

    We have salad daily, me sometimes 2 – 3 times daily. Love salad of all kind. Thanks for opportunity for giveaway.

  52. Holly

    I eat a veggie-based salad practically every day, unless there are no veggies left in the bin. That usually is the case if I’ve been overzealously juicing.

  53. Morgan

    Lettuce is eaten daily in this house, but it is often used in different ways, made into smoothies, cooked with eggs, you name it, we do it to get our vitamins in!

  54. cheryl b

    If it was up to my husband, we would have salads at every meal. He loves them and does not even put salad dressing on his greens – just likes them plain. Yuck, I like more flavor!

  55. Liz Cook

    We enjoy salad most every day. Always looking for a way to change it up! What a fun give away! Wish me luck! °Ü°

  56. Tara

    We eat salad every other day in our home. My kids prefer steamed veggies, so we eat those on alternate days, but salad is mine and hubbies favorite veggie portion of our meal.

  57. Heather K Miller

    Almost everyday. That’s my go to lunch and I usually serve a green salad with dinner as well!

  58. Vaidehi Shah

    I usually eat more salad, when its warmer outside, because I like crunching into a cold crisp fresh salad, on a hot summer day. But typically I eat salad once per week.

  59. Shelby N.

    We eat salads fairly often. It does go in streaks though — lately it’s been at least once a week. I make them for my lunch at work a lot. Great giveaway!

  60. Marcy

    We eat salad about 3 times per week…love the bag salad kits…esp caesar salad…good way to get my kids to eat some veggies πŸ™‚

  61. Stephanie Nguyen

    My boyfriend and I try and eat salad every evening with dinner! With the perfect dressing, salads are great!! πŸ™‚

  62. Danielle

    I eat salad every Tuesday night after working until after 8:00pm, it’s my go-to to a quick easy meal that’s healthy and filling. I also have a small side salad with my dinner several times a week.

  63. My first answer to the question is, “Never enough.” But we do like salad and often eat it as a main dish, as either a chef salad with eggs or as taco salad. We’re particularly fond of pasta salads and I’m always trying to come up with some way to get more veggies into our pasta.

  64. Jenna

    We eat salad most nights of the week. Sometimes it’s pretty simple – but we usually like to jazz it up with nuts, dried fruits and fresh items out of our CSA box!

  65. Hannah

    I’m TRYING to be better about eating salad, but I’d say at least once a week. Thanks for a fun giveaway!

  66. Allison R.

    I eat a salad about every 3 days! Even more in the summer, so I don’t have to heat up the kitchen to cook!

    Allison R.

  67. wintersundays

    We eat salad a couple times a week. Though that will change as the weather gets warmer. We’ll be eating a lot more salad. Warm weather begs for lighter fare. We had Salad Saturday a couple weeks ago featuring awesome salads (one made by yours truly!) We usually have movie night on Saturdays so it was fun to sit around and talk and eat salads.

  68. Marrisha

    We eat salad at least 3 times a week and always have lettuce and ingredients on hand. Dole salad kits are a fridge staple!

  69. tiffany

    I eat warm salads at home – with chicken or steak. At lunch I will often grab a salad since it’s pretty healthy.

  70. Jen

    We eat salad every once in a whie, I am really the only one who likes it, however I have ots of friends who like to eat salad! πŸ˜‰

  71. Sarah G

    I try to eat salad every day. With two young ones in our house, salad is a part of dinner 2-3 days a week, although I could eat it every night!

  72. Angie

    LOL, like everyone else, not enough! But I do have spinach in my smoothies every morning. Salads at the table, maybe once a week.

  73. We eat salad at least a few times a week. My girls love salads specially when we mix up our own dressings. They make the perfect lunches for them at school too specially with some protein. I feel lucky to have girls who will opt for a salad. This book would give me more ideas for meals for them.

  74. Amy

    Well, my husband and I are on a diet for the 1st time in 8 years!! Following this regimented book…we are eating salad everyday! Of course, I’ve lost 10lbs, but my husband has lost 20lbs! haha.

  75. Denean Powley

    Salad is eaten in my household atleast 6 times a week. Tonight we are having Chicken Salad, requested for by the kids.

  76. 3 or 4 times a week I make a big salad at the beginning of the week and add more greens to it as I go. I make a different salad everyweek so my mouth doesnt get bored. I also make my own dressings and put in a spritz bottle. thanks

  77. Emily C

    Honestly, we hardly ever eat salad. I wish we ate more and we try to but the bags of salad always freeze in our fridge before we get the chance to enjoy. We have tons of salad dressings but hardly ever get to use them!

  78. Tracy

    We eat salad 3-5 times/week. Either as a side or a main dish. We add protein, like grilled chicken strips or cooked shrimp if we are eating the salad as a meal.

  79. Martha T

    I grew up eating salad almost every day. Don’t eat it quite as often now and definitely not as often as I should.

  80. megan

    We eat it at least once a week…just depending on what I can find on sale in the grocery store that week.

  81. Alicia B

    Only a couple times a week during the winter- once it starts warming up we have them more often because it means less time in the kitchen!

  82. Mrs Mattman

    Actually only recently have we started to eat salads again. Green salads. I didn’t even know my daughter and husband liked salad. I would make pasta salads, still not their thing. They do love green garden salads and fruit salads.

  83. Tania

    We eat salad about 3-4 times a week in my household. Salads are just so easy and convenient to add to just about any dinner!

  84. cindy

    We aim for salad at least three times a week. With summer coming, and fresh produce from the farmer’s market, that number should go up substantially!

  85. Devon Malone

    We love salads during the summer! Love it because we don’t have alot of dishes to wash πŸ™‚

  86. Jolene Beard

    We eat salad as a side dish several times a week, but as for a main dish salad, usually at least once a week. Yummy!

  87. I try to eat a salad every day at home, but I tend to run out of salad mixed greens before my next shopping trip, so it tends to be more like 3-4 times per week!

  88. My kids love leafy salad, so at least once a week. I try to fix it for myself for lunch at least once a week too. Fruit salad is almost daily around here!

  89. Linda F,

    I eat salad every, single day. Usally a butter lettuce mix with craisins, tomatoes and carrots. And a Light Ranch Dressing.

  90. I eat salad pretty much every day whether I bring one to work for lunch or make one at home. Your topping options are endless and it never gets old. Plus, its great for your waistline! πŸ™‚

  91. maybe once a week … the kids hate them and I’m so tired of having to make multiple items for consumption – we do need to eat them more often though

  92. Avery K.

    We eat salad about twice a week with dinner! It’s not my boyfriend’s favorite thing, but it is starting to grow on him (thank goodness)!

  93. I buy salad every week. Sometimes the salad goes bad before we get to finish the bag. I wish it would stay fresher in the bags longer. I would eat it everyday with veg’s too.

  94. Lynn Sewel

    We eat salads about 3 times per week. I’ve got a great looking one right now in my work fridge! Looking forward to lunchtime.

  95. MJett

    We eat salad just about 4 times a week. Especially when there are nights with pizza and, let’s face it, there just isn’t really a good vegetable to go with it. So salad does the trick!

  96. Ashley

    I actually eat the Dole salad kits every day for lunch at work. I buy one and use Tupperware containers to split it up over two days. Yummy and cost effective!

  97. We eat salads whenever the salad mix is on sale…watching my budget and still tyring to eat healthy can be a challenge with the high cost of veggies and fruits!

  98. Margo

    I eat salad EVERY work day! Pack it the night before and take it to work with me. How fantastic would that be…to win a salad party?!! I’m going to look for “salad party printables” now! =)

  99. Nikki

    I love eating salads. I find that greens are a great vessel for just about any ingredient. I make a “skinny” taco salad and its my favorite right now. We eat salads at least 3 times a week as a side or an entree.

  100. dlc1961

    Have been eating a salad for lunch or w/dinner on a regular basis for the last 3 months; my boyfriend loves to experiment with his salads so we have been doing a lot of dinner salads lately!!

  101. Rebecca Allred

    We eat salad at least twice a week, if not more. I really love salads that have a lot of fun toppings.

  102. taki

    unfortunately, i don’t eat them as much as i should…once a week? this cookbook would give me ideas to want to eat salads more!

  103. Kara D

    I eat salad at least once a day, and occasionally twice. The twice usually happens if we go out to eat. πŸ™‚

  104. SalBug

    I make a salad every night for dinner. My six year old son usually just eats the cucumbers and tomatoes with no dressing, but last light he asked for ‘our’ salad. So cute!

  105. Jennifer C

    My husband I eat salads for a side all the time. I love to just throw “what I have” on some lettuce and enjoy.

  106. Alyssa

    I eat salad at home for dinner at LEAST once a week as the main dish, and take a salad for lunch at least twice a week–love salads! πŸ™‚

  107. I probably eat salad 2-3 times a week. Had a really delicious one yesterday with cantaloupe, feta, chicken, green leaf, & walnuts. Yum!

  108. Angela Gjelhaug

    I have a 9 year old son who does not like vegetables but will eat a salad so we have one everyday with dinner and sometimes 2 a day if he takes one for lunch πŸ™‚

  109. Haley W

    Typically during the week with dinner! My husband and I love trying different salads and we have been trying to eat healthier since we are expecting our first baby in June!

  110. Cassie

    My boyfriend actually got me in the habit of serving salad a few times a week before dinner. I order salads out fairly often too (always a good vegetarian option if they don’t offer veg entrees).

  111. Sarah

    This would be awesome! We are huge salad eaters in our house–almost every dinner has some sort of salad involved. And during summer, our salads get crazy. I’m so excited!!!

  112. Allison C

    Not often enough. My husband won’t eat salads and I find that I can’t get through a container of greens or a head of lettuce by myself without eating it practically every meal. That gets a little old. I like to get arugula, spinach, etc because I can add that into other meals (pastas, etc) easier than I can romaine so I’m less wasteful. In a couple of weeks we will move into our first home so I’m hoping that we can finally have dinner parties and maybe then I can make salads for people who will want to eat it with me.

  113. Definitely more in the summer than in the winter (not great, I know). But I try to fix salad a couple times a week. Especially if I make a pot pie or quiche. Salad goes great with those!

  114. We eat salad more in the spring and summer when we don’t want a heavy meal (must go hand in hand with getting ready for bathing suit weather).

  115. Laura H

    My husband and I love eating and trying new salads. We do more in the spring/summer with the warmer weather!

  116. Emily

    I have a salad at least once a day–they’re so versatile and I use them as a vehicle for just about everything savory–eggs, grains, beans, lean protein, nuts, fruit!
