Vegetable Salad in a Jar

I have been trying to eat healthy, keeping off from all the meat.  For months I have been off beer, sodas, and all bottled juices.  I am not totally a fan of vegetable but I have been forcing myself to stick to the greens.

So I planned on making some salad for dinner and to save on time for the next meals, I decided to prepare them in my mason jars.I would like to share with you a quick and easy, single serve salad that you could store for 3-4 days in the fridge and  you could just grab when you need something light.

2 tbsp Thousand Island Dressing
2 -in long carrots, cut into strips
2 in long cucumber, sliced
quarter of apples, cubed
8 pcs grapes, sliced
romainne lettuce, sliced
cheese, shredded

1.  Fill your mason jar with the dressing.
2.  Layer carrots, cucumber, apples, and grapes inside the jar.  Give the jar a tap so the empty spaces could be filled.
3.  Add the shredded cheese.
4.  Finally, all as much lettuce that you could fill the remaining space of your jar.

You could actually, add more ingredients like tomatoes or turnip.. Likewise, you could change the dressing to vinagrette.  It is all up to you.

Happy healthy eating everyone.
