Greek Mason Jar Salad

Who does not love a good Mediterranean salad? It is even better when you can take it with you in a tidy little jar that won't drip or spill in your lunch bag. Not traveling with your salad? No problem, this same recipe will fit nicely into a bowl as well. The cost of a nice salad with feta cheese will set you back approximately a whole $2.06 per serving for lunch. Compare that to the cost of ordering out!

This is a very low calorie dish if you wanted to add more protein you could simply add some chick peas or grilled chicken at approximately 46 calories per ounce. 
If you are not counting carbs a nice slice of warm pita makes this salad a delight. 
We like to use a mix of Iceberg lettuce and whatever else we have on hand. Romaine works great as well as spring mix with the Iceberg.
