Salads to go!

Not a big salad fan here.
Here's why:
To make a good salad requires a ton of ingredients
Planning ahead
Dressing issue - carry around bottle or find a tiny container
The veggies go bad in only a few days making it frustrating and expensive!

Thanks to Pinterest I have discovered salads in a jar!!!
You make all at once ahead of time, they stay fresh for 1 week and nothing is wasted!


I picked up some mason jars with toppers and got to work.

I bought Ranch (Newman's Own because it is MSG free)
Tons of veggies I love
Mixed salad leaves

The layering is the most important part of this process.
Measure out 2 Tbsp dressing and pour into bottom
Then layer the chopped veggies
Top with lettuce.

When you're ready to eat, turn it upside down and shake.
It travels well, it's healthy, cost effective and super delicious.

Total calories per jar = 188 calories!!!
