Healthy Salad in a Jar

Have you jumped on the "Salad in a Jar" bandwagon yet? I don't know who started this craze, but it's pure genius. Once you try it, I guarantee it will become a welcome addition to your lunch-packing repertoire.

Why is it so cool? You can fill five jars on Sunday night, refrigerate, and then enjoy healthy lunches all week long no matter how busy your schedule gets; just grab and go.  The veggies stay fresh and happy stored this way in tightly capped, glass jars. No worries about BPA or other plastic chemicals. And there's no fretting about how to pack the dressing because it's cleverly layered at the bottom of the jar away from the greens.

Salad-In-A-Jar

STEP ONE:

Start by adding your favorite dressing to the bottom of the jar. My "go to" dressing is simple and healthy: 



• 2 tsp olive oil
• 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
• Scant 1/8 tsp of each: pink Himalayan sea salt, garlic powder, dried basil and oregano (you can also wait on the salt and add later, so it doesn't draw moisture out of the veggies)
