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.
Salad In A Jar. If you want to bring a salad in your lunch, keep them from getting soggy by layering the ingredients in a jar. If you layer it just right, you can make the salads ahead of time and grab a jar on your way out the door in the morning.
