This genius trick will make your shop-bought salad taste SO much better

When it comes to foods that are total lifesavers, ready-bagged salads feature pretty high up on the list.

They're easy, healthy, and so genius and handy to customise into pretty much whatever you want. Add nuts or cheese or meats or serve as a side to anything from burgers to a BBQ; those little packets of ready-prepared salad are your best friend.

The thing is, though; once opened, your salad can go from crisp to floppy very quickly, and if you hate throwing out food as much as we do, you will go ga-ga for this handy tip that promises to help you keep those leaves fresh for lots longer.

So. Freaking. Simple.
