Laurie's Tip

This is a great salad to take on a picnic or pack for work. Mason jars make a great carrier as they are the perfect shape for layering salad ingredients. Be sure to always include your dressing first, then your heartier vegetables, and always finish with your greens so they do not touch the dressing and get soggy.  I love the fact that this recipe uses a vegetarian source of protein – beans – so it is even more ‘friendly’ to transport.
