For some time now, there has been a growing trend of taking your lunch to work in a jar! Not only does it make your life easier but its also looks chic. Oh, you might even feel really good about eating those fresh, clean vegetables of yours too. When making a Jar Salad, the options are endless! You can add quinoa or pasta, toasted nuts, cheese and any other ingredient that you like. Besides, you get to choose the vegetables you add to your Jar Salad and that's half of the battle right there.
You can choose to add the dressing for the jar salad only when eating the salad or directly add it to the jar but if you do add it to the jar, then it needs to be the first layer (the first thing you add so it sits on the bottom) therefore it doesn't ruin the freshness of the vegetables.
