Easy DIY Salad Bar & Lazy Susan

Easy salad bar and lazy susan diy

It’s Salad Season!! Fresh veggies galore~ Let’s just say to start, I really don’t love salad. Part because of my allergies but part because I just don’t like pre-food.  (that’s what my husband calls it.) So back when I went to Fitness Ridge (now called Movara) they had an open salad bar. You can see my post about Fitness Ridge AKA Movara {HERE} and my 12 things I learned {HERE}. Our calories were kept under close watch. But if you really needed more or just liked it, you could have as much salad as you like.  It was huge. And I really didn’t know I liked salad until it was presented to me in this way. So I decided when I came home I was going to do that too. My kids are so, so salad eaters but they were willing to try.
