Test Kitchen Tip:

Mixed green salads are so easy with the assortment of packaged mixed greens that are available in the produce section of the grocery store. Some even come with a dressing packet inside. Make sure you buy enough for 8 for this menu. Plan on about 2 cups greens per person, or about 2 16-ounce packages.
