Salads in Jar
For more information about creating your own salads in a jar, see “7 Steps to Making a Salad in a Jar” (FN1886).
• Thoroughly rinse vegetables and/or fruit before cutting and adding to your salad. Water speeds spoilage/wilting of salads, so spin lettuce and vegetables in a salad spinner and/or pat dry with paper toweling.

• Add the salad dressing of your choice, then the layers of tasty ingredients. Shake together when ready to eat.

• Store salad in refrigerator at 40 F. For best quality, use within three to four days of preparation. If using meat, use salad within three days of preparation.
