# How Many Servings Are In A 5 Pound Bag Of Salad?

None

1 (2 lb. bag) Tossed Salad/Chopped Romaine serves 16 (main course) to 25 (side salads). 6 (2 lb. bags) = 150 servings (you will go through every bit of it). How many servings are in a 5 pound bag of salad?

If you are serving salad as a side dish (with other side dishes), plan on approximately 1.5 ounces lettuce per person If you are serving only salad as one of the main dishes (Soup & Salad or Salad bar), plan on approximately 2.5 ounces lettuce per person .

The 5 pound container of Potato Salad or this 5 pound container of Baked Beans above typically serves 20 people (4 ounce servings) The answer to the question, â€śHow Many People Does A Sheet Cake Feed?â€ť actually lies in the answers to two other questions:

If you are serving salad as a side dish (with other side dishes), plan on approximately 1.5 ounces lettuce per person If you are serving only salad as one of the main dishes (Soup & Salad or Salad bar), plan on approximately 2.5 ounces lettuce per person.

## How many ounces of salad should I eat?

For the salad greens, you can figure that each person will eat about 2.5 ounces (1 cup). Based on that guideline, hereâ€™s how much you will need: 4 people â€“ 10 ounces (4 cups) 6 people â€“ 15 ounces (6 cups) 12 people â€“ 30 ounces (12 cups) 20 people â€“ 50 ounces (20 cups) For the chopped vegetables, figure each person will eat 4 ounces (1/2 cup).

Hereâ€™s how much you will need, based on everyone eating that amount: 4 people â€“ 16 ounces (2 cups) 6 people â€“ 24 ounces (3 cups) 12 people â€“ 48 ounces (6 cups) 20 people â€“ 80 ounces (10 cups) For the salad dressing, each person will eat about 2 tablespoons. Hereâ€™s how much salad dressing youâ€™ll need, if each person eats 2 Tbsp:

A medium-to-large head of iceberg should be enough to serve 4-6 people. And if youâ€™re serving outdoors, remember to put all your salad greens, chopped vegetables and salad dressings over bowls of ice!

## How many ounces of chicken per serving?

If your chicken is a component of a recipe, plan on 3 to 4 ounces of chicken per serving. Large quantities of boneless, skinless chicken thighs are very often NOT available at your local supermarket. If you follow AlohaDreams you know I use boneless, skinless chicken thighs a LOT! They also work GREAT in the slow cooker.

And sometimes restaurant burgers are even 1/3 to 1/2 pound (5 1/3 ounces to 8 ounces). You should plan on 3 ounces per person if youâ€™re incorporating it with other ingredients or making smaller hamburgers.

Iâ€™ll choose boneless, skinless thighs poached hands-down anytime. Costco typically have 5 and 8 pound pouches. Samâ€™s has a 6 pound pouch. They are frozen individually (very handy) and pretty much trimmed of excess fat (another HUGE time saver when cooking for a crowd). Or you can buy it in case quantities.

1 (6 pounds, 11 ounces) can of cheese sauce plus 24 ounces of water has a total weight of 8 pounds 3 ounces â€“ and serves 50 â€“ 60 people. On average if youâ€™re feeding 100 people for dance or party, you only need 2 (6 pounds, 11 ounces) cans of cheese sauce each thinned with 24 ounces of water. The most Iâ€™d get is 3.

Amount of other food you have. Temperature (if itâ€™s hot they will eat less) A typical serving size of queso dip is 3 tablespoons (2 1/4 ounces of queso), which is about 1/4 cup or 1 ladle-full. Even heated, the sauce straight out of the can is far to thick to eat, let alone serve, effectively.
