My Newest Lunch Obsession: Salad in a Jar

salad in a jarThis is utterly brilliant! Not only does “Salad in a Jar” save space in your fridge, it also reduces food waste and gets non-salad eaters to mow down daily.

The Arrangement — from BOTTOM to top:

  • Dressing
  • Shredded carrots
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Baby spinach


  1. Arrange ingredients in a large mason jar
  2. Store in fridge for up to a week
  3. When ready to eat: shake jar, place on a plate, and eat!

You can make any arrangement you want … you can add red onion, cucumbers, radishes or peppers. Always remember to put the dressing at the bottom and the lettuce at the top — a MUST.
