The Trader Joe's Kit That Will Make Salads Easier

Whether you're looking to squeeze more veggies into your lunch or want a lighter option for dinner, a salad can be a great healthy choice. Depending on the ingredients you choose, salads can be packed with good-for-you leafy greens, assorted vegetables and fruits with vitamins and minerals, and healthy fats and protein in the form of meats and cheeses. An easy way to satisfy your salad craving is with a salad kit, which comes with everything you need, including toppings and dressing, with no tedious chopping required. According to Grandview Research, the packaged salad market has grown massively over the last few years thanks to the convenience factor.

Trader Joe's recently hopped on the salad bag trend with a new release. This week, Instagram fan account @traderjoeslist shared a photo of Trader Joe's Dillicious Chopped Salad Kit, which contains a base of chopped cauliflower, red and green cabbage, green leaf lettuce, radishes, and kale mixed with dill pickle seasoning, creamy dill cucumber ranch dressing, and the store's Chips In A Pickle Dill Flavored Potato Chips. Here's what you need to know about the new salad kit, which Trader Joe's reports will only be available in stores for a limited time.

People are excited about the pickle-inspired salad

It's no secret that many people who love pickles really love pickles. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that a lot of the comments on Instagram from those who have tried the Trader Joe's Dillicious Chopped Salad Kit are positive. "I've already purchased 4 bags of this salad since my initial bag and will be revisiting this specific salad as long as it lives on the shelves," the original poster, @traderjoeslist, raved, adding, "It pairs nicely with everything." Another person chimed in, "I had this for lunch today and I'm obsessed with it now! So bomb."

The new Trader Joe's Dillicious Chopped Salad Kit has also received praise on Reddit. "The potato chips are the extra flavor/texture that I wasn't expecting that totally make the dish." Others like that it doesn't contain any wheat, making it a good choice for those who eat gluten-free. One person recommends adding plant-based chicken nuggets for added protein, while another suggested slices of apple for freshness.
