A salad in a mason jar? Seems kinda Pinterest-y right? Well, there’s actually great reasons to put a salad in a jar… First of all, since the jar is vertical, any dressing you pour into it will run down to the rest of the salad, so you will get dressing on every bite. You also can use less dressing, meaning you will consume fewer calories without sacrificing taste. Since the jar has a cap, you can shake it after you put the dressing on to make sure the dressing disperses evenly.
Artichoke Salad might sound like an odd concept to some people, and you may be saying to yourself “Why artichokes?” Well, there’s more to them than just being yummy. With the inclusion of beets, artichokes help boost gallbladder and liver function. This is also a great take-with-you salad, paired with virtually any meat such as chicken, turkey, beef, or shrimp.
