French Jam Jar Salad

French Jam Jar Salad

Here is a great idea for either a picnic or taking your lunch to work.  Put your salad in a French Jam Jar for easy storage and carry.  You can layer mixed green salads, fruit salads or any kind of salad you want.  Here I layered a simple vegetable salad.

 

INGREDIENTS

Mache

Peeled Cucumbers

Sliced Tomatoes

Chopped Belgium Endive

Chopped Carrots

French Jam Jars

 

Peel the cucumbers, slice the tomatoes, and chop the carrots and endive. Layer up the vegetables into as many French jam jars that you need.  Put the salad dressing into a separate container.  Seal up the jars and pack up for your picnic or work.  Enjoy!

 

I always stock up on French jam jars.  They are versatile and quite handy in a pinch.  I also use them to store left-over food in the refrigerator.  Trust me; left-overs won’t look so pathetic.
