Health/Food crazes (let’s admit it) are mostly just annoying and a way for other people to make money off our insecurities. That being said every so often one of those pinterest/instagram annoyances of an idea is actually good and these salad jars are one of them! Vegan, nut/wheat allergies, dairy issues, it does not matter. You can get so creative with these, travel the world through the jar man!
But of course to get you started this is one of my faves!

2 tbsp celery (diced)
2 tbsp red pepper (diced)
