Who wouldn’t LOVE a healthy twist on the BLT classic? This salad jar is everything you love about the beloved bacon sandwich classic without all the carbs. Now, that’s a total win!
The trick to creating the perfect salad jar is to stack the dressing on the bottom and then layer wetter ingredients putting lettuce closer to the top of the jar. This keeps all of your ingredients fresher and you don’t have to worry about carrying the dressing around.
I always get asked if I eat out of the mason jar. I usually dump the jar onto a plate or bowl. The salad turns out great every time.
Here’s the full recipe:
1.5 tbsp. french vinaigrette
1/4 cup diced tomatoes
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley (optional)
1/4 cup diced cucumbers
1/4 – 1/2 avacado
1/2 cup romaine lettuce
1/2 cup cooked chicken breast
2 slices bacon
Pro tip: squeeze lemon on the avocado to help it last longer.
