Balsamic Veggie Salad in a Jar

April 21, 2013

As some of you may know, I am currently fascinated by foods made in jars and cups. Not only do they transport well, but they are adorable and super easy to store. The latest in my foods in jars fascination is this Balsamic Veggie Salad. Take a little trip to your local Farmers' Market and pick up some fresh veggies and top the salad off with dressing made from scratch.
