If you make this for lunches put the dressing in the jar first then layer other veggies making sure you put the greens in last so they don't touch the dressing. Don't shake until ready to eat. It will keep a few days in the fridge this way; as long as the greens don't contact the dressing! Read More

This a great and unusual picnic course and I do agree with one reviewer who suggested putting in the dressing first and greens last thus keeping the greens fresh and crisp. Read More

If you are making these for later use the dressing must go in the jar first topped by hearty vegetables sush as julliene carrots or sugar snap peas followed by whatever layers you want finishing with the greens on top. Otherwise the salad will get soggy. Read More

I know you're thinking "What's the big deal? Just put a salad in a jar." The dressing in this salad is the big deal. I adjusted the ingredients of the salad to accommodate the contents of my fridge (subtract beets - add sprouted lentils fresh zucchini and radicchio). Put the dressing in a small container and take it with you. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
