When the temperature rises above 90 and the humidity is making the air thick with moisture, I’m in no mood to eat a big heavy meal!!!
That’s when I turn to the garden and farmer’s markets for delicious summer produce!!! A big yummy dinner salad is perfect in sweltering weather!
Choose colorful salad fixins’ and layer them for a feast for the eyes as well as the tummy!
STONEGABLE SUMMER SALAD IN A JAR
Here are some ideas that I found helpful…
~ use a big funnel to add the ingredients in the bottom of the jar
~ cut all the food, even the lettuce, in similar size bites
~make it colorful… more fun!
~use oversized jars to maker it easier to dig in!
~ carry an extra helping of salad dressing to pour over the top of the salad
~ if you are taking the salad on a road trip or picnic… all the ingredients can be chopped up ahead and then layered right before you are ready to leave
~ refrigerate or put on ice until ready to use.
