Salad in a Jar

Is that not just the coolest thing? I have been seeing photos on Pinterest for a while now of salads in jars and was intrigued at how well it would keep. It turns out that it does very well. The best part is that you can make up several jars on Sunday for your lunches during the week.

There is one thing that is very important to remember, don't let the dressing touch the lettuce in the jar. If it does, the lettuce is kind of not appetizing by the time you're ready to eat.

Start by putting 1-3 T. of your favorite dressing in the bottom of the jar. Add any additional ingredients that you like in your salad, such as carrots, cucumber, cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms, just about anything. On top of those veggies, add your lettuce. Seal, refrigerate and you're set. When you eat your salad, just dump it in a bowl and there's your salad with the dressing now on top. I add shredded cheese and croutons after I dump mine. So cool and easy.
