Cobb salad is a classic. Made with ingredients like turkey, avocado, hard boiled egg, and zesty cheddar, it's one of those simple all-in-one meals where you are guaranteed a forkful of yumminess in every bite. But kids being kids, that doest always mean that the little ones will be as excited about it as you. Well, try tossing your Cobb in a jar and watch how quickly it gets eaten!

After reading my friend Katie Sullivan Morford's cookbook Best Lunch Box Ever and coming across her simple Cobb Salad recipe, it inspired me to try it for dinner. After making Raspberry Cheesecakes in Mason jars this summer and watching how excited Kenya and Chloe got to eat their own individual dessert, I invested in a few different types of jars. These glass jars with handles are really cool and a fun touch at dinner time, especially if you have "picky" salad eaters. I like to let my kids layer all the ingredients into the jars, pour dressing on top, and then shake, shake, shake! Can you imagine anything more fun than that to do at the dinner table? Cobb Salad in a Jar is a fun way to make and eat dinner.

I'm forever amazed how just putting food in a different type of container can turn it from an I'm not so sure about this recipe to an I can't wait to eat it! one.

    You can make several of these with dressing in the jar by layering this way: Dressing -> tomatoes -> egg -> avocado -> cheese -> lettuce. Pack them as full as possible. The less room you have, the longer the freshness lasts. I make salads in a jar on Sunday and eat them all week long. They are just as fresh on day five as they are day one.

    This is a great idea because it allows kids to feel like they are “cooking.” My niece said that the recipes from your “recipe book” is good. She is a very picky eater, but she loves everything she’s tried from Weelicious Lunches.
