How good is walking to the fridge on a hot sunny day to find a salad fully made and ready to go? No faffing and chopping when your’e starving, and no limp lettuce from being pre-prepared too early. Just a crisp, delicious bowl of yum
Salads in jars are going to deliver that directly to you. Starting with layering your heavier items at the bottom (with optional dressing, or you can add it later) with the lighter leaves on top and all fresh as can be in an airtight jar.
The best part is you can make them out of anything you like – almost every single salad is possible in a jar. Make a bunch at the start of the week for lunches, or pack them away on a sunshiny picnic. You won’t know how to get through summer without them!
This salad makes a Thai-inspired dressing, but feel free to add your own.
