Salad in a Jar with Creamy Balsamic Yogurt Dressing


Salad in a Jar with Creamy Balsamic Yogurt Dressing





















Now that summer is almost here and the weather is nice, our weekends are packed with
pool time, graduation parties, picnics and more. I just love this time of year!

Grilling and salads become the norm for dinner because who wants to be in the kitchen
when it's nice outside - not me! I also pack salad in my lunch for work much more during
the summer months too.



Salad in a jar is a cute and practical way to transport salad to work, a picnic or day
at the beach.  Jars pack easily in a cooler and are ready to eat when you are.

Lately I've been using Taylor Farms Organic Power Greens in my salad, which is a
medley of kale, spinach, chard and carrots. This blend is also great for smoothies!

Taylor Farms is a family owned farming operation based out of Salinas, California.
They offer a variety of salad kits, organic vegetables, snack trays and more.
Their products can be found at Kroger, Target and Meijer grocery stores.  Their
salad blends are so fresh and delicious and perfect for salad in a jar.

A salad without dressing can be pretty dull, so don't forget to pack the salad dressing!
For my salads in a jar I made a healthy, creamy dressing using Stonyfield Whole Milk
Yogurt, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. And guess
what! I made the dressing in a jar too! Just add the ingredients to a mason jar, top with
a lid and shake. That's it!

Make some salad in a jar with a creamy yogurt dressing and go on a picnic today!
You may also want to pack a few chocolate eclairs in a jar or strawberry shortcake in
a jar for dessert!
