    I make salads for the week in jars without a pump/vacuum, AND with the dressing inside. Few tablespoons of dressing on the very bottom, layer of a sturdy veggie, like bell peppers (they don't get soggy), then your other veggies, greens on top. I use cherry tomatoes or diced tomatoes on side. Easy! - 9/20/13

    I make these salads every week. The onion gets really strong if you put it in the jars. I just cut up some onions and add them when I eat the salad. Also I only use cherry tomatoes because the chopped tomatoes kinda go limp. I hope this helps. - 9/20/13

    For a little variety I like to chop up some deli ham or turkey and throw that in on the day that I plan on eating the salad too. Adds a little more protein that way as well, without increasing the calorie count too much. - 9/20/13

    A great idea! I detest messing up the kitchen grating etcetera, so now, instead of doing it every day: make up a stock-pile - stack up a few days' jars and into the fridge - looks appetising and tidy too. And on the go does not have to feel like back to school! Love your recipes - very inspiring - 9/20/13
