Hack:  This dish pairs perfectly with Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Pork!

Hack: Cabbage, broccoli and carrot mixture can be made ahead and stored in a tightly sealed bag or container for up to 5 days. Add raisins and dressing when ready to serve.

Hack: Check the produce department of your local grocery store for pre-cut broccoli florets to avoid having to buy an entire head. You may also be able to find them in the salad bar.

Hack: Ask the produce clerk to cut a head of cabbage into wedges so you’ll only have to buy what you need. They’ll wrap the leftover pieces and put it back on the shelf for sale. Use any leftover cabbage to make this roasted red cabbage and shrimp recipe or Oven Braised Pork Roast with Red Cabbage and Leek!

Hack: Matchstick carrots can be found in the packaged section of the produce department. Freeze any leftover carrots for use in cooking.

Hack:  Place burgers on a cookie sheet and place them in the freezer until frozen.  Put individually into sealable sandwich bags and then into a sealable freezer bag or freezer container.  The rolls can also be frozen in the same manner.

Hack:  To extend the shelf life of romaine, separate leave and wash.  Dry in a salad spinner or with paper towels.  Place lettuce leaves in a sealable plastic bag or container with paper towels between each layer to absorb moisture.  Replace paper towels if they become soggy.
