Tasty Tuesday In A Jar!

Hi Terra,

I just saw this on Facebook and it looks really interesting, I also watched the video showing how to vacuum seal the “Salad in a Jar.” I haven’t tried it, but it seems like it would work.

I come to your Tuesday sessions in Schaumburg.

MY NEWEST LUNCH OBSESSION!!!!! Utterly brilliant, people. Not only does SALAD IN A JAR save space in your fridge, it also reduces food waste and gets non-salad eaters (me) to mow down daily.
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… you can add red onion, cucumbers, radishes or peppers. Always remember to put the dressing at the bottom and the lettuce at the top—a MUST.

Dear Monica,

I’m so excited about this idea! I think it’s brilliant and I can’t wait to try it. I mentioned it in one if my Naperville meetings Monday and a member there has already tried it and said it works great. She said the salads can last up to 3 days! Perfect for preparing ahead of time for a grab and go lunch. Not to mention the jars are cheap, cheap, cheap! I bought a case at Meijer today!!!

Thanks for the email, Monica!!!
