Tips for salad jars:

  • You can store the salad jar in the fridge up to 5 days.
  • If there is any cheese, proteins, or soft fruits and vegetables, add them to the top of the jar the same day you plan to eat the salad.
  • When ready to eat, shake the jar well until the salad ingredients are mixed well with the dressing.
  • Remove the lid and pour the salad into a bowl. Toss gently with a fork until coated well with the dressing.

Enjoy it!
