Jar salads are exactly that, salads in a jar. These really are a fantastic way to make sure you get a boost of healthy veggies in your day and they are so simple to make. A great suggestion is to put cooked quinoa at the bottom and layer the veggies such as shredded beets and carrots, slivered almonds and raisins then finish it off with some crisp lettuce.
