Looks delicious and very good 4 my body. ♥ Recipe: Salad in a Jar Adapted by Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body Salad: Makes 2 salads in 32 oz jars 1 cup cubed chicken 2 big handfuls mixed greens 1 cup chopped mushrooms 1 cup cherry tomatoes 1/4 red onion, diced 1/4 cup chopped bell pepper 4 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe from Creative Kitchen Adventures 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 1-2 tbsp water (more or less depending on the consistency you want) 2 tbsp honey (can be replaced with agave or brown sugar) 1/4 tsp sea salt 1/4 tsp black pepper Place all ingredients into a small lidded jar. Or blend all ingredients in a blender for 30 seconds. Anything with a lid works well. Shake to mix thoroughly. Stores in fridge for 1-2 weeks. Layer the ingredients in the jar as follows: Balsamic Vinaigrette onion peppers mushrooms tomatoes chicken 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. Easy to double this recipe and make lunch for all week.

    We've been taking these to work for lunches and we love them! I don't pack them too tightly so the dressing can coat the salad more freely, especially if we use a thicker dressing like Creamy Caesar or French.

OK. Lets get this out of the way. You either saw this post and thought, Thats genius! Why...

Salad in a jar - FYI, it does seem to work with regular tupperware, with a snug lid. Also topped with a paper towel to avoid excess moisture. Do not overfill! It makes shaking harder :)

Orzo Pasta Salad with Asparagus and Artichokes

This might be one of the most amazing things ever!!! "Salad made in jars at the beginning of the week, with the spinach/lettuce not touching the dressing)…will last about 4 days, so you have one for almost every day of the week!"

I'm repinning this because....IT WORKS! My lettuce stays fresh for ever...and when I see it in my fridge... it makes me want to eat it...cant beat that!

Another pinner said:Could Angela Liddon get any more incredible? I think not. This recipe was so so so fresh and delicious! And I love the mason jar concept, I had lunch all ready to go for me for five days straight! My body and tastebuds would start to crave it as soon as I got up in the morning.

The most important part of the layering is making sure the dressing and the spinach (or whatever ‘leaf’ you choose) 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. This is one of my tricks to eating salad everyday for lunch at work. I make a few jars on Sunday night and just grab one to bring to work everyday. When you’re ready to eat, just shake it up.

premake salads in jars! Keep the dressing on the bottom sep from the greens so they don't wilt

Going to buy some jars TODAY and see how this works out for the rest of the week.
