Salad In A Jar

Have you heard of a salad in a jar?  Well, apparently it’s the next new thing.  You simply layer your salad dressing and other ingredients in a jar or  a tall, narrow Tupperware container and store it in the fridge for a grab and go lunch.   The best part is you can make a few days’ worth of lunches in individual jars and have a healthy lunch ready in a snap – just don’t let the dressing touch the lettuce or else you’ll end up with an icky soggy salad jar.

Here’s how to make your very own salad in a jar:

  • Place salad dressing of choice to the bottom on  your jar or container
  • Layer hard or crunchy veggies (carrots, cucumber, radishes)
  • Add protein (chicken, beans, etc.)
  • Top with lettuce, spinach or salad greens of choice
  • Cover tightly with lid and place upright in fridge
  • When you’re ready to eat your lunch, turn your jar upside down (with the lid still on) to mix the dressing with your salad

Here’s the one I made this morning – YUM!

Now go run!
