Salad in a Jar!

When I read about this idea on Twitter last week, I was totally blown away.
  What a simple, but brilliant way to package salad for Perry to take to work with him!
I didn’t use any leafy greens in this particular salad, so it probably wasn’t as vital to keep the veggies away from the dressing as it would have been had I used lettuce.  Regardless, it’s an awesome idea and I’ll continue making these.

Here’s what I did…
 To a small bowl, I added balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, Dijon mustard, Celtic sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
 Whisked it all together to make a dressing
 Poured the dressing into a large mason jar
 Added some grape tomatoes
 Diced celery
 Chopped red peppers
 Chopped cucumber and sliced green onions
 Lots of grated carrot
 And topped it all with pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts and pine nuts
