I love picnics and salads and jars. Combine all three with this portable layered salad idea. I was trying to make a Jubilee salad (red white and blue) but frustratingly discovered that are there are no genuinely blue foods. Blue foods are purple. So I gave up and used whatever goodies I could find in my fridge.
The layers from the bottom:
Pickled plums recipe from Nigella Lawson
Mini mozzarella 'pearls' (available at Tesco)
Tiny cherry tomatoes from Riverford Organics.
Curley parsley from my garden.
Shaved purple carrots
Shaved orange carrots
Sunflower sprouts from Riverford Organics.
Dressing of your choice
Tip: put the dressing in the bottom then turn the jar upside down once you've set up your picnic.
