Cobb Salad In A Jar


        I have been on the go lately and when I go to places...I don't always like to eat out.
        I don't do fast-food...So this idea is a perfect and fun solution. Get your picnic
        baskets ready and make a salad in a jar. You will be amazed at how fresh everything
        stays....and let's face it, food tastes better in jars because it's so fun. I store dressing
        in little containers with lids.

                                                              Cobb Salad In A Jar

         1 pint cherry tomatoes
         6 slices, turkey bacon- cooked.
         8 ounces turkey deli meat or chicken breasts
         1 to 2 avocado
         crumbled blue cheese or feta
         3 hard boiled eggs
         romaine lettuce

         Dressing
         3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
         2 tablespoons olive oil
         1 teaspoon dijon mustard
          salt and pepper.

           All you have to do is layer the salad in the jar and be creative. Enjoy.

  48. I'm such a fan of the Salad in a Jar movement. Healthy for one. And any reason to eat/drink out of a Mason jar totally has my vote. ~Megan

  56. Just when I was worrying about how to maintain my Atkins during four ten-hour days of driving! Even though it's all through desert states, I always pack a cooler full of ice and all my reserved motel rooms have mini-fridges, so I should be OK with four of these and a couple of six-packs of pre-fab whey protein drinks. THANK YOU -- I saw this just in time!
