Chef Salad in a Jar

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr


One thing I like about a salad in a jar is that you can make this up ahead of time. It is perfect to make the night before to have ready for lunch the next day. I found that the lettuce still does stay fresh and it doesn’t get soggy since the salad dressing is at the bottom of the jar.  This recipe for Chef Salad in a Jar is super easy to make and will help keep you healthy.

      This is great to hear. Sometimes I make them ahead of time on Sunday for the week so I can grab and go. It is so convenient.
