A collection of more than 60 illustrated recipes for simple-to-prepare salads, dressings, breakfasts, and snacks to take on the go.
The solution to the lunchtime salad rut, Salad in a Jar provides healthy, easy alternatives to dissatisfying or overpriced grab-and-go meals. These nutritionally balanced recipes are perfect for making ahead. Anna Helm Baxter reveals the keys to layering ingredients to maximize freshness and texture for a hearty and satisfying dish or snack. Tips and tricks include instructions on designing salads in a jar with recipes for raw salads, side salads, meal salads, snacks, and desserts.

I have been looking for a book about jar salads and this one is the best I have come across. Simple layout, easy to follow layering instructions and tasty, diverse recipes.
Each recipe also has an indication of the health benefits of the ingredients. 
The beauty of salad in a jar is that it can compete with fast food, once you understand the basic rules, do a quick bit of prep, there it is in the fridge, ready to grab.

I shall be buying the book and I know it will be well used
