Step 1

Layer the ingredients in the jars as follows: vinaigrette, onions, peppers, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, protein, salad greens. The most important part of the layering is making sure the dressing and the salad greens don’t touch. As long as they stay separate, these salads can be made up to 4 days in advance and will stay fresh in the fridge with a lid on. It’s easy to double this recipe and make lunch for all week. Feel free to add more veggies. Leftover roasted veggies work well too!
