Mason Jar Salads

Post  walshevak on 6/21/2012, 7:59 am

Saw this on Facebook and clicked back to a Pinterest posting. Seems like a way to increase use of our garden produce.

I am totally going to try this... what a great idea for a busy family! We usually do our groceries once a week, so putting stuff in jars before putting it in the fridge is great!

could even do smaller jars for lunch salads at work!!

Thank you for sharing.

if you use a vacuum sealer for the jars, your goods will stay fresh for almost two weeks. this is how i do it:

I have tried this system and it is great.....dressing....layers of veggies as worked on or sorted.....topped with lettuce.... I eat more veggies this way....

Will have to dig out my vacuum system to see if it will work for me.......Ruth
