Comment: Don’t sell your used salsa and sauce jars short, they make the perfect container for a convenient pick-me-up during or in-between classes. The glass jars are durable enough to toss in your bag for your walk and can help control the portions of your snacks. The varieties of colors in this salad recipe are bright enough to combat any gray Monday morning this spring semester. Feel free to add your own twists and get as creative as you’d like.
