Salad Jar How-To
Dressing and wet ingredients go in first. This is so they don’t make all of your other elements soggy!
Then the moisture resistant ingredients such as olives and cherry tomatoes go in.
Next add other vegetables such as roasted sweet potato.
The next layer is your proteins.
Finally add salad leaves. Pack them tightly to hold everything in their layers.
