    Saw this and thought it was too cool not to share:

    Healthy salad in a jar. Not only does SALAD IN A JAR save space in your fridge, it also reduces food waste and gets non-salad eaters (me) to mow down daily.
    From BOTTOM to TOP:
    Shredded carrots
    Cherry tomatoes
    Sunflower seeds
    Hard boiled eggs
    Baby spinach
    1) Arrange ingredients in a large mason jar
    2) Store in fridge for up to a week
    3) When ready to eat: shake jar, place on a plate, and eat!

    You can make any arrangement you want… you can add red onion, cucumbers, radishes or peppers. Always remember to put the dressing at the bottom and the lettuce at the top—a MUST.

    ****NOTE**** If your making a few salads at a time for the week, you MUST remember to vacuum seal the Mason Jars. (Mason jars can be bought at Wal-mart, and various grocery stores) They must be vacuum sealed to remain fresh and crisp icon_smile.gif Here are two different ways to vacuum seal a mason jar icon_biggrin.gif

    This is a great lunch. I've been making soup on the weekends and putting it in pint size jars to take to work. It's quick to grab from the fridge in the morning. But I need more fresh veg...I should put this on rotation.

    Thanks for posting this!

    Thanks Molly.

    I've actually tried it out on fresh salad - it stayed very fresh an entire week!!
