    Default Storing cut vegetables

    I'm currently doing lite n easy and I'm starting to realise that it's easy enough for me to do it all myself now I have a feel for portion sizes etc.

    I'd like to start making salads, wraps and sandwiches, but I don't want the hassle of chopping and grating a heap of vegetables every day so I'm wanting to hear peoples thoughts on what the best way to store cut vegetables is and how long they should last in the fridge. For example prepping everything on a Monday morning, would it last through till Friday if i have it in snap lock bags maybe?

    TIA!!

    Oops sorry just realised you meant salads.
    I don't know about that, I think grated carrot etc would store well in ziplock bags, I buy bags of salad, tomatoes wouldn't last

    Yes I think they would last in plastic containers or ziplock bags for a week. There was a thread about this ages ago.

    Yes they are. You don't need a separate container for each fruit and veggie either just one for each 'category' and there are three categories - light, medium and heavy breathers.
