We are doing our own catering, well with the help of lots of friends! everyone has a task! Anyways we are doing Lasagna, green beans, a big salad bar with all the fixings! and bread! My problem is the salad bar. I am going to have a big bowl for the lettuce and then for all the diffrent ingredients I am getting mis-matched glass bowls and crystal like. anyways my problem is what do i put the salad dressing in? Just a bowl or something that will pour? if you have any pictures please post! I cant come up with anything!!!

You could use a bowl with a small ladle, or a coffee creamer, depending on how much dressing you think you’ll need.

I agree with a bowl and a small ladle. I have seen that before and it seems to work well 🙂 Or if you could, you could purchase individual packs from the store or from any other place that sells them???

tritto the above! You want it to hold enough so you dont have to refill. I would also have more than one selection with a label so people know its “low fat italian” vs. a vinaigrette or blue cheese vs ranch etc.

Bowls and ladles = a mess on the table. Use a wine carafe-pours easily, large enough not to need refills, most even have a space for a label.

I like the creamer idea. You can go to the goodwill/thrift type stores and get glass ones for really good prices.

Then again, you could get those ketchup and mustard bottles they have at restaurants sometimes and you could use those. You could put labels on them stating what is inside. They have clear ones as well. It might be too casual though for some people…but its a thought 🙂

Hope this isn’t too late, but you don’t need to buy anything on ebay! When I was in 4th/5th (?) grade, we made our own salad dressing as an activity in school. You could recycle glass bottles (ask family members and friends to save them) and wash them out/boil them to clean them. We each brought our own bottles to school (fancy water bottles, wine bottles, swingtop soda bottles …) The swingtop soda bottles are the best because you can just cap them to prevent spillage, but you could recycle wine bottles and keep the corks. You could make little labels for the bottles that say what flavor the dressing is.
