  2. Grape tomatoes
  3. Peppers
  4. Cucumbers
  5. Strawberries
  6. Blueberries
  7. Sprouts
  8. Mixed greens
  9. Herbs (mint and basil) 

Dressing: 
Look for low-carb. and low-fat
Squeeze lemon over top as dressing
Vinegar lightly sprinkled on top

Kelly suggests using different greens to get a variety of textures.
Utilize tougher greens like kale and cabbage for more crunch.
Fruit can add a lot of flavor and color.

Salads in a jar made on Sunday can last until Friday.
