With it you will effortlessly cut potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers or carrots, among others. It can be taken apart for easier cleaning.
Salad spinner with sauce hole
We do not always find a product with these characteristics that performs two functions: that of spinning the lettuce well, on the one hand, and that of dressing it with oil or any sauce, on the other. This last step is done through an opening in the top cover. Its design is transparent, can be washed in the dishwasher and is the perfect size to cover the needs of up to three people.
Cut avocado, peel and open
One of the most used ingredients in salads, regardless of the time of year, is avocado. For this we have to handle it with the best accessories we have in the drawer: like this 3 in 1 product. Cut, peel and stone this exotic fruit easily and safely. Its potato peeler makes even and equal cuts and the handle of the accessory is non-slip to avoid unexpected scares.
Cut hard boiled eggs into slices
Properly cutting hard boiled eggs or good mushrooms for a 10-inch dish is no easy task. However, we can always help ourselves with a tool like the one we are highlighting: made of aluminum, it is capable of cutting egg slices up to 5mm thick, ranging in size from S to L. Its cut is so clean that it will do not crumble the yolk from the egg.
Sliced vegetable cutter
Another variant to complete our rich vegetable salads is this little expedient: a very easy to use accessory with which we will manipulate apples, potatoes, onions, even of large diameter. Turn any ingredient into twelve even slices, which makes it very practical when imagining other types of salads.

Playing with the ingredients is one of the strong points in the preparation of any salad. To help us create different presentation shapes, we can use this accessory set to carve fruit and vegetables, such as melons, watermelons or pineapples. Three of them have a spherical end and the last one has a tunnel design. They are all made of stainless steel.
Accessories for salad dressing
Oiler with silicone gasket
If we always go beyond quantity when we go to dress the salad, it is because we may not have a good utensil. The one we propose has everything for you to take the right measure and prepare fantastic vinaigrettes. It incorporates an anti-block function, has a measuring scale and has small recipe books printed on the sides. It can be easily disassembled and washed in the dishwasher.

They are available in two different sizes and include two cleaning brushes.

Good materials, easy to make in two separate parts and easy to use. This is how this set of tongs is used to mix and serve salads without worrying that a part of them will fall along the way. It has a very high rating on Amazon: 4.6 out of 5 stars.

Lunch box with glass lid at two heights
Keeping the properties of a salad intact once it is prepared requires a good storage accessory. In EL PAÍS Escaparate we found this packed lunch ideal to take to work or on a trip. It consists of two different levels, its lid is transparent with four hermetic closing tabs and, in addition, it has a third compartment for sauces or condiments.
Vertical airtight container, by Lékué
In recent times, the use of vertical containers has also become fashionable to carry our preparations in a backpack or bag.
