Quick, Cheap Lunch Idea: Salad Bars at Copps, Pick 'N Save

Copps and Pick 'N Save are both owned by the same company, and thus have a number of similarities. One important similarity is the salad bar. It really is outstanding and offers an opportunity for a quick and inexpensive lunch. I especially love their spinach-based salad with abundant raspberries, blueberries, nuts and cheese. But there are many other fine ingredients to choose from, including fresh pineapple, watermelon, broccoli salad, artichoke hearts, Caesar salad, etc. A few of the ingredients would cost you more to buy them alone than they do for $4.99/pound in the store.

With the salad bar, I often get a fresh baked roll from a nearby bin where they are just 33 cents each. One of the easiest, fastest, healthiest, and least expensive lunches around.
