ITA! My favorite time-saver is my Tilia FoodSaver with it's jar
attachment. I cut up a bunch of jicama and celery and add maybe some
olives and green onions (but I've stopped with the green onions for now)
and use it as either a salad base or a stir-fry base. I usualy make a
week's worth at a time, separate them into mason jars and then suck the
air out with the FoodSaver. It keeps AMAZINGLY well and all I have to
do is dump it into a bowl or frying pan and add cheese, dressing/sauce,
meat or whatever I feel like adding at the time of cooking. That way I
get my veggies but I don't have to make a big production out of it each
time, and the base provides plenty of food for a meal in and of itself.
