Salad…in a jar

As summer spirals down, we are trying to get the most out of our garden. I picked the last of my tomatoes and made 5 jars of homemade tomato sauce as well as picked 10 cucumbers and 2 fat zucchinis. I was telling him I think next year we are going to skip the cucumber plants since I have harvested close to 46 this year from one plant. Thank goodness I didn’t plant multiples. I decided to get rid of our tomato plants and cucumber plant from our garden since the plant keeps getting bigger but not producing anything and let me tell you, it looks so bare now. We have been blessed with a ton of rain which has been amazing and not too much fun. There’s nothing worse than being out running errands with Jellybean and being caught in the downpour. I am grateful for my rain shield (thanks uppababy) that goes over the car seat that was able to protect her because I looked like I had hopped out of the shower and put on clothes right out of the washing machine.  Anyways, after spiralizing 6 zucchinis I figured why not put some in the salad this week.


You always want to start with the bottom and work your way up. Think about it, you don’t want to put the dressing on the top and have everything get soggy. Plus when you flip the jar then your dressings and toppings are at the bottom of your bowl.

Bottom to top:

  • Salad dressing (chipotle ranch)
  • beans (kidney or black)
  • green pepper, diced (garden)
  • onion, diced (garden)
  • zoodles (zucchini noodles)
  • coodles (cucumber noodles)
  • lettuce
  • a lime wedge
