Have you tried making a salad in a jar? It’s a great idea as you can prepare a few jars at at time and keep them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. If you would like to keep them refrigerated for a week, you must vacuum seal the Mason Jars. You can purchase a FoodSaver® Wide Mouth Jar Sealer with a vacuum sealer kit. This process will help your salad remain fresh and crisp. I did not use a sealer.
Wash and cut your vegetables, and also spin your lettuce.Put in the jar from bottom to top (very important)
- Shredded carrots
- Cherry tomatoes
- Green Peppers
When ready to eat just shake the jar, pour on a place, and eat!
You can add any ingredients you would like as long as you remember that the dressing has to be at the bottom and the lettuce at the top.
This video shows how to use a Foodsaver to seal a Mason jar.
