This is a great picnic or lunch salad which is packed in a wide-mouth pint jar which holds two cups of salad - perfect for one person. It is versatile and easy to make ahead. It will keep for several days if the dressing is kept on the bottom of the jar and no really juicy veggies are used. Any veggies can be used but the juicy veggies will dilute the dressing if kept in the jar for long. Because the salad is in a glass jar with a lid, it will keep very fresh for several days if kept cold and the dressing is kept on the bottom of the jar. Each 2-cup jar serves one person so the salad can be custom made to include just those items each person likes.
