This post is brought to you by OXO. SNAP into summer!
Summer eats generally means lighter fare. When it’s ridiculously hot outside, the last thing anyone wants to do is cook. And even if you do, sometimes it’s more fun to eat outside. Or you’re outside anyway, swimming, visiting family, whatever. OXO’s 8 Piece SNAP Glass Round Container Set is perfect when you’re taking your summer meal somewhere fun.
I love this set. For one, it’s made from BPA-free borosilicate glass. The heavy-duty stuff (really, you can feel the difference in weight when you hold one of these containers). The containers can withstand extreme temperature changes without the risk of cracking or shattering.
The lids each have four locking tabs and removable gaskets that create a leakproof seal. I took leftovers to work in one of these, and the seal really is leakproof. I didn’t have any liquid sloshing around the bottom of my lunch bag!
In addition to the 8 Piece Set, OXO also kindly sent me a Little Salad Dressing Shaker, as well as a 2-in-1 Salad Server Set. I figured my favorite summer salad would be perfect for showing it all off.
Another great feature of the SNAP Glass Containers is that they’re stackable, as well as nestable. So you can pack up your salad ingredients and carry them off:
The smaller containers are great for things like cheese, or croutons (which aren’t an ingredient for this salad). It keeps them from getting soggy/mushy, until you’re ready to combine everything.
(Or, if you’ve got extra-ripe, extra-juicy tomatoes…)
And then, when you’re ready to eat, you can bring your plate back inside, to avoid all the bugs/mosquitoes.
