Summer’s diet is lighter and great for salads
Here’s one easy way to make salads in advance and keep them fresh – use a dry mason jar – when packed correctly it stays very crisp and fresh!
Layers should go something like this:
♦ Bottom layer is dressing or other wet ingredients… this is key. You need to keep the dressing away from the lettuce to keep it from getting soggy.
♦ Second layer needs to be a hearty vegetable like tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, etc. Think about veggies that would taste good marinated in dressing. You will need a good amount of these vegetables to keep the dressing and lettuce separate.
♦ Third layer is proteins or grains. This could be eggs, beans, rice, quinoa, pasta, etc. Next add the lettuce or greens.
♦ Last, you would add seeds or nuts.
Ta da! No excuse now for not getting in your greens. “Like” and share if you’re a big salad lover! 🙂
