I love eating salads, but I don’t always have time to make them, and pre-preparing them usually ends putting in gross, soggy, wilting salads in the trash instead of delicious salads into my belly.
I’ve seen a lot of “salad in a jar” talk on the internet, and decided to try it out for myself a few weeks ago. I followed the instructions, and made myself 5 mason jars of salad, one for lunch for the entire week. Of course, because we’re talking about my life, I wound up in the ER that same night (not from salads, and don’t worry I’m fine!) and sick all week. So I didn’t touch a single one of the salads. And I kid you not, on day 7, I went into the fridge for the first time since my hospital visit, opened one up, and it was completely fresh, so I wound up having my salads that week instead.
That being said, you can make your favorite salad combinations in a jar according to the following directions, and not worry about it going bad the next day anymore!
