So we're doing this weight loss challenge and as someone who DESPISES cooking, I'm always looking for something that requires minimal effort and is still healthy. So thankfully I came across this brilliant idea on Pinterest: Mason Jar Layered Salad.
I usually pre-make four of these on Sunday, stick them in the fridge, and my lunch is ready to go!
These are the tricks I learned to making it last a full week:
1) You HAVE to layer it properly. It keeps the lettuce fresh and not soggy.
2) Use LIME JUICE to keep the avocado & tomatoes from brown-ing.
3) I keep my dressing in a separate container.
4) I also use 'wide-mouth' mason jars to make it easier for stuffing!
Here is how I layer mine....
*Before adding the lettuce, make sure you add lime juice to the bottom layer to keep it from brown-ing.
Here are the small containers I use to keep my dressing in (can find at Publix or Walmart). And yes, they are supposed to be for shots! LOL!
