BLT salad in a jar

Easy meals are what I live for, this salad one of the easiest things to make and so tasty it is ridiculous.

A classic with a spin

Bacon, lettuce and tomato in a jar with a simple dressing. I love this salad as a take to work lunch option. On the rare occasion that we have bacon leftover from breakfast this is what I use it for. Bonus points for a plastic free meal when you use a big glass jar.
