I saw a Pinterest pin that showed how to make salad ahead in a mason jar. The information said that as long as the dressing didn't touch the lettuce it would stay good for several days. I have endive growing like crazy this year. I picked a little more than we needed for our salad about ten days ago, cut up the excess and put it in a mason jar. I expected to use it in just a couple of days. Well, the usual happened. The monkeys shoved it behind a gallon of milk and a bottle of BBQ sauce and I forgot about it. This afternoon, I discovered it. It was surprisingly still pretty fresh, at least the top half. So I am cutting up another couple of heads, putting one jar in our fridge and one jar in the fridge at work. This time, I promise not to forget about it.
