Garden Salad To-Go


This salad is great to make ahead.  I used a wide mouth, pint mason jar.


Start with adding dressing of your choice.

Next all all the crunchy ingredients. Tomatoes, carrots, celery, radishes ect

Craisins, bacon bits and chopped egg is next

Lettuce must be added last so it does not get soggy in the dressing.

Shake and enjoy!

Try not to pack it to full or it will be tough to shake.
