A lot of what I read stated the salads only lasted about 3 days...so I didn't want to make too many. Mark is sort of picky so I have to be careful the type of salad I made...I didn't have the meat prepared at the time so I used extra black beans to make up for the lost protein. ;)
Like I said, I made these salads Sunday evening.
dressing(greek yogurt, salsa, taco seasoning), black beans, avocado, tomatoes, corn, black olives, cheese, and lettuce FYI: I used the large mason jars. They have a big opening at the top and I think that makes a HUGE difference. It's easier to shake and eat as well...per Mark. ;)
Mark ate the last one yesterday...which was Wednesday, even the avocado tasted great! I didn't use anything to make it stay fresh longer. I posted the picture above on Instagram and I had lots of questions. I am doing my best to answer all of them in this post. I ate one of the salads on Tuesday. It was perfect to empty into a bowl for me. Since I was at home it was just easier for me...it all poured into the bowl in order...lettuce on bottom.
Mark has asked I not add the tomatoes next time so I will be leaving those out...I will also add some ground turkey or chicken. The salad was SO filling! I couldn't finish it. Next time I will also add a little more lettuce and less dressing as well.
Just for reference I used THIS post
