Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Greek Turkey Feta Salad
I’m slow to adopt new trends. Take Mason Jar Salads, for example.
Since then I’ve seen them all over Pinterest.
But, because I work from home, I didn’t think they made sense for me.
I decided to reconsider when I realized that some days at lunchtime, even with all the ingredients I needed sitting right in the fridge, I was still too lazy to pull them out and make salad!
The cool thing is that these salads-in-a-jar will stay fresh for several days.
I’m going to try to work on developing the habit of putting together an extra salad-in-a-jar or two whenever I’m making one for lunch and dinner.
That way there will always be one waiting for me, increasing the odds that I’ll opt for it ran than the cookie-in-the-jar!
The secret to success with these salads is the order in which you layer the ingredients.
The dressing and any juicy ingredients go in first.
Then heavy, sturdy items, with the fragile lettuce going in last.
That’s really all there is to it.
