PS. When freezing chopped herbs, I'd suggest adding a bit of olive oil to the container keep them from turning brown. It will freeze and preserve the herbs. :)

We also finely chop (and sometimes pulse in the food processor for a few seconds) veggies, herbs, garlic, etc. and freeze flat in quart bags. Then we can quickly add to sauces, soups, marinades, or anything, really! It's especially handy in the dead of winter or when our veggie garden yields a large amount of veggies all at once and we want to save some for later in the year. You can break off a corner, half, or the entire bag and toss it in whatever you're cooking... I highly recomend it!

LOVE this post! I'll be pre-making a few salads inspired from the post and the comments tonight, for the remainder of the week! I'm thinking 'healthy' buffalo chicken... mediterranean, summer fruit & goat cheese, and tex-mex taco salad. Hopefully I can keep the calories in check with portion control and minimizing the cheese/nuts/creamy dressings... And, great tip about storing the fruit in water! I'm already looking forward to lunch tomorrow!
