Spinach Salad In A Jar

I realize that I may be beating a dead horse here,but I still love those Salads in a Jar.  This time, though, I decided to make a spinach salad.  In fact, I decided to make this spinach salad. Here’s the assembly instructions.  You will notice that I switched out some of the ingredients from my original post containing these salad ingredients to make this more diet friendly.

As I was beginning to attempt my first salad in a jar, I noticed that […]
