you all probably recognize this little guy from Pinterest and I’m totally guilty of pinning this at least 10x with the hope that I’ll someday try it. well, that day finally came. I constructed a salad in a jar!!
ok, it really wasn’t that big of a feat, it was more so about getting my hands on some mason jars (thanks mom!)
anyways, the purpose of putting all of your salad fixings in a jar rather than a standard Tupperware container is to be able to put the dressing right in with everything else without having your greens get soggy by lunch time. genius!
to make your own salad in a jar, put your dressing in first, followed by hard veggies, nuts, fruit, anything! top with greens and you have everything you need to enjoy a delicious salad with out the $13 price tag. when lunch time rolls around, you can just dump the jar into a bowl and skip all the mess of chopping, mixing and testing your luck with the community dressing in the office fridge.
