My Taco Salad in a Jar

Sunday, July 07, 2013

Today I made a new salad.

The recipe is:
2/3 cup corn
1/2 cup pinto beans
1 cup combined red, yellow, and orange bell peppers
2 T Tostitos Chipotle Pepper Salsa
2 cups romaine lettuce
and just because I had them 1 cup sliced mushrooms

312 cal 67 g carbs 2 g fat 16 g protein

It was delicious! Take a look.

If you make salads in a mason jar, the lettuce stays crisp for a week. Then you just pour them on a plate or in a bowl to eat.

    Hi there,

I didn't realize that a jar was such a good place to store lettuce and keep it fresh and edible, thanks for that info--and that beautiful salad that you made. Since we are all here because we love to eat so much, this is a valuable blog.

Gentle hugs,

    434 Teresa: You make it in the jar and it stays fresh for a week. I pour mine out onto a salad plate to eat.
