Salad in a Jar
Although these salad ingredients are suggestions, substitute freely with your colorful sliced, chopped, or diced favorites, layering in amounts that fill a quart-size jar.
- Start with a clean 1-quart-size wide-mouth glass jar with a lid.
- Pour vinegar or dressing into the bottom of the jar. Layer the most sturdy salad ingredients into your jar. Next, add layers of lettuces and other colorful vegetables of your choice. Top your salad with the lightest and most delicate ingredients. Close jar tightly with lid.
- Keep jar refrigerated, or inside of an insulated bag until lunchtime.
- To serve, pour the entire salad into a large bowl. Or, if preferred, simply turn jar upside down, shake vigorously until dressing is evenly distributed, and enjoy salad directly from the jar.
