Wondering why make a salad in a jar instead of tupperware? The jar allows you to layer the wet ingredients at the bottom including the dressing so your lettuce stays crisps at the top. The jars I use are around 24 oz. and make for a super filling lunch.

Here are the best tips I found for layering:
1. Put dressing at the bottom
2. Add wet ingredients like beans, tomatoes or fruit
3. Add Protein Layer
4. Place greens on the top

  1. Chicken, Fig & Pecan Salad
