Recipe ideas: salad in a jar

From a Facebook friend ... salad in a Jar ...

ARRANGE in a Mason jar from the BOTTOM to the top:

Shredded carrots
Cherry tomatoes
Sunflower seeds
Hard boiled eggs
Baby spinach

1) Arrange ingredients in a large mason jar
2) Store in fridge for up to a week
3) When ready to eat: shake jar, place on a plate, and eat!

You can make any arrangement you want… add red onion, cucumbers, radishes, or peppers. Always remember to put the dressing at the bottom and the lettuce at the top—a MUST.
