Salad in a Jar

Having a salad for lunch is so quick and easy when work is super busy.  You don't have to heat anything up. Usually when I plan to have a salad, I take about 4-5 different containers to work and then I mix it all together in a bowl.  It's such a hassle.  I discovered this 'salad in a jar technique' a while back on Pinterest.  Follow me here.  This is such an easy lunch to put together.  I put all my jars together on Sunday and then every morning I just grab a jar and off to work I go.  The key is to keep the lettuce as far away as possible from the dressing.

I included some of my favorite things in my salad in a jar: honey mustard dressing, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, bacon, blue cheese crumbles, almond slivers, boiled eggs, lettuce mix.

When you are ready to enjoy your salad, just shake the jar and pour into a bowl.
