Recipe Wednesday! Mason Jar Salads + Parfaits - LAYER + go!

Happy summer to you all! Here's a great summer picnic take-along - mason jar layered salads. You can change up the ingredients as you like, just remember to reverse the order - dressing goes on the bottom, then lettuce, then toppings, then the lettuce again - have fun mixing + experimenting! MASON JAR SALADS ****************************************** >>>BOTTOM LAYER *1/3 head lettuce, chopped *1 cup shredded cheddar cheese *2 c. mayo *1 small onion, sliced thinly *1 can peas, drained >>>TOP LAYER *1/3 head lettuce, chopped *1/2 lb. bacon, crumbled *6 hard-boiled eggs, chopped *1/3 head lettuce, chopped >>>Directions: Fill 4-6 quart jars in the order listed, dividing the ingredients equally among the jars. Screw on lids + rings, and refrigerate overnight to mix the flavors. Pack + go! ************************************************** WE MAKE PARFAITS THIS WAY TOO! Just make 2 layers of cut pieces of yellow cake, pudding or fruit pie filling, and whipped topping. ************************************************** "You know what ELSE everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious!" ~Donkey from Shrek
