Expert Tips

The trick to making to sure the salad doesn’t go bad is to make sure the lettuce never touches the dressing and that we first add the solid ingredient and keep the dressing at the bottom of the jar.

Women today have fun roles: workers, mothers, wives, personal assistants, chefs, and teachers… the list goes on! For our families (and ourselves) it’s very important that we find simple and nutritious meals to take to work. Besides helping us diet and saving us money, it also saves us from having to purchase lunch every day. We can also control what we eat since we prepare this delicious simple lunch ourselves. One of the new lunch trends is packing salads in glass jars. This salad can be prepared all week and won’t go bad now that you know my big secret!

The jars should always be kept refrigerated.

I recommend purchasing vacuum-sealed glass containers to keep everything fresh.

Directions

  • 1 Wash the glass jars thoroughly.
  • 2 Cut all the vegetables with the help of a food processor. Set aside.
  • 3 Start preparing the savory vinaigrette for the green salad. Mix all of the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl and add 1 1/2 tablespoons of vinaigrette to the bottom of the jar.
  • 4 Add a tablespoon of chopped celery, a tablespoon of jicama, a tablespoon of red onion, 5 tomato cherries and 1 cup of lettuce. Do this again for 2 more jars. The amount of green salad should be enough for 3 jars.
  • 5 For the sweet salad with oranges, prepare the dressing by combining all the ingredients on the list. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of pomegranate vinaigrette to the jar. Add a tablespoon of pomegranate, one of beets, 10 orange wedges, tablespoon of red onion and finally, add the lettuce.
  • 6 To eat, just shake the jar to spread the dressing and enjoy!
