All over Pinterest there are pictures of foods in jars. The one that I wanted to try was the whole salad in a jar thing, since I find that my lettuce/spinach goes nasty quickly and this method should prevent that from happening. So here’s my version of a salad in a jar.
- Romain lettuce
- Canned whole kernel corn
- Tyson chicken strips (the kind that are all done up and even cut up for just this kind of thing)
- Tortilla strips
- Spicy Ranch dressing
Now, all the internets will tell you to put the lettuce on top, but since I didn’t want to put the dressing in the jar with everything, I figured I could not do this. Y’all…put the lettuce on top. Otherwise when you dump it in a bowl, all your toppings will now be on the bottom of you salad. Let’s get started!
These have been really delicious salads. I’m definitely going to keep doing this for my lunches during the week. Sunday, after going to the grocery store, I just assemble the salads and I don’t have to worry about it during “hectic” (aka-sleepy) mornings.
I just need to think of other “salads” to make. I’m pretty basic with my salads, so I’m going to play around with some combos and see what I like. Any suggestions?
