To-Go Jar Salad

Have you been seeing people with jar salads lately? I've been seeing them everywhere. I really didn't understand the point of them until I actually sat down and did a little research. Here's the 411. Not only are they convenient for meals on the go, but they also keep your lettuce fresh and crisp. When making a jar salad, it's all about the layering.The layers help to keep your dressing, lettuce and veggies all separated. AKA no more soggy lettuce. Here's the step-by-step instructions for making a jar salad:

Layer 1: Dressing

Layer 2: Protein and Grains (quinoa, nuts, eggs, etc.)

Layer 3: Veggies (carrots, peppers, etc.)

Layer 4: Fruits (strawberries, blueberries, etc.)

Layer 5: Leafy Greens

Layer 6: Cheese toppings (blue cheese crumbles, feta, etc.)
