This is brilliant! I love everything about it, the flavours, the prep so it's ready, and the mason jar presentation!! As a reader of your blog the new year has been amazing, so so many awesome recipes and LOVE the lists!

Thanks, Pat! Its quite nice having lunch pre-made everyday. :)


Funny, I was pondering packing the boys' lunches in jars this morning! They would freak if they got salad though! Love this.. I'm totally doing it for my next picnic! just as soon as it stops snowing...


This sounds delicious! I will make this for my lunch next week for sure!

Delish! Sounds just like my kind of lunch, and I think I have all of these ingredients. Pinned!


Hi Jan! Just wanted to tell you I'm obsessed with this Jalapeno Lime Dressing!
