Why you should use a dressing pot for your lunch box salads

When it comes to healthy eating, salads are often what you think of. They are a go-to choice for a nutritious and satisfying meal. Packed with fresh vegetables, lean proteins, and a variety of extras, salads can transform your lunch from a boring mid-day filler meal, into a meal you look forward to each day. But there's one often-overlooked component of a well-prepared salad that can take your lunch box game to the next level: the dressing. Your salad dressing has the opportunity to make or break your lunchtime.

In this blog, we'll explore the many reasons why you should consider using a dressing pot for your lunch box salads.

Freshness Guaranteed

One of the primary benefits of using a dressing pot is that it keeps your salad dressing separate from the rest of your salad components. This means your greens won't wilt, your croutons remain crunchy, and your veggies will stay crisp. By adding the dressing just before you're ready to eat, you'll enjoy a salad that's as fresh as when you prepared it.  Moonmoon's mini pots  are an ideal pot for all your dressings.

Portion Control

We've all been there – pouring dressing straight onto your salad can sometimes lead to overdressing, resulting in a soggy mess. Using a dressing pot allows you to control the exact amount of dressing you want to add, ensuring your salad is perfectly seasoned to your taste. 


A dressing pot provides an opportunity for customisation. You can experiment with different dressings, mix up your flavours, and even try multiple dressings for a single salad thanks to our 3 pack of dressing pots. This variety can keep your lunchtime salads exciting and prevent salad boredom.

Reduced mess and leaks

Placing your dressing in a separate container ensures your salad stays neatly contained in your stainless steel lunch box. No more leaks or messes to deal with on your lunch break. Dressing pots are designed to be leakproof, so you can transport your lunch with peace of mind. You shouldn't spend your day worrying about what disaster you're going to open at lunchtime, and with our stainless steel sauce pots, come lunchtime, you will have a delicious, mess free salad waiting for you.


Dressing pots aren't just for salad dressing. They can also be used to carry other condiments or toppings, such as crumbled feta cheese, olives, sunflower seeds, or chopped nuts. This versatility allows you to enjoy a more varied and satisfying salad experience.

Using a reusable dressing pot is an environmentally friendly choice. Say goodbye to single-use plastic dressing packets, which can be wasteful, expensive and harmful to the environment. By using a durable, reusable pot, you're making a small but impactful contribution to reducing plastic waste.

Perfect for on-the-go

Lunch breaks are often short, and we need lunch options that are easy to assemble and eat quickly. A dressing pot simplifies the process. Just pop it open, pour, and toss back in your bag to wash later. No need to search for a clean spoon to scoop out your dressing or worry about dressing spilling all over your desk.

It's a practical, eco-friendly, and stylish addition to your lunch routine that ensures your salads remain fresh, flavourful, and free from mess. So, the next time you prepare a salad to go, don't forget to include a dressing pot – your taste buds and your lunch box will thank you.
