I am kind of obsessed with food in mason jars. Mainly because I am trying so hard not to use plastic for storing and serving foods! It is part of my commitment to eating healthier!
When I starting flipping through the recipe book Jar Salads by Alexander Hart recently, while shopping at Terrain, I knew it needed to be the March giveaway selection for the blog!
The book inspires me to create some new jar salad combinations, and I am sure it will do the same for you! I love putting together healthful combinations of fresh ingredients to take on the go and this book is a great guide to creating fresh and transportable salads to eat throughout the day!
The recipes in the book are divided into four categories: vegetarian, seafood, poultry, and meat. There are fifty-two inventive salads – literally, a new one for every week in the year! From a Mexican-inspired vegetarian taco salad to Vietnamese pork and vermicelli noodle salad, there are plenty of taste combinations to try! Just add a bunch of fresh ingredients to a screw-top mason jar and you are good to go!
