Jar Salads

This is the greatest idea I have ever seen. What a find! The author says they last about 7 days in the refrigerator. Done in quart wide mouth mason jars. Review by reader This is the greatest idea yet. I made 6 jars to last all week. My jar salad included (from top to bottom) spinach, chicken, cheese, hard-boiled egg, strawberries, pineapple, cauliflower, cauliflower, shredded cabbage and carrots, jicama, Asian dressing or Caesar dressing. WW points = 7. With adding pineapple and strawberries, the juice from them added great flavor to the salad and made the dressing go further. I never imagined 2 TBS of salad dressing would satisfy me. Boy I was wrong. Thanks for posting

Ingredients

  • 1

    . Dressing on the bottom, lettuce on the top. If the two are touching the lettuce will turn to slime.

  • 2

    . So, dressing goes in first. On top of your dressing, use a rather "hearty" vegetable, such as shredded cabbage, pea pods, or julienne carrot matchsticks. They can withstand the acidity of the dressing, and actually get better!

  • 3

    . Pack it in. Use a nice variety of colorful vegetables! Make it fun and involve the kids.
