What makes this idea more than a gimmick is the staying power of salads packed into a jar. If you multiply the recipe, this salad will keep for three or four days in the refrigerator.

Bok Choy and Spinach Salad with Chicken and Clementines

Beet and Cannellini Bean Salad

Southern Potato Salad with Black-Eyed Peas
