Here’s another one of my recipes from my Cook to Thrive! Cooking class with the theme of Salads: More Than Just Lettuce! I showed participants how to make 4 different salads and make them ahead in a jar so that they can eat them for lunch, or dinner, on multiple days. Great for bringing to work or having ready for when you get home!
If you’re not familiar with the “salad in a jar” concept, check out my blog post here: Salad in a Jar Recipe Ideas
