Mason Jar Salads & "Sushi" Balls

By Caron Barr  
Mason Jar Salads & "Sushi" Balls

As you clean up the kitchen tonight, ask yourself, “What can I create from these foods to make something new and fresh for tomorrow’s lunch?” Scan the pieces of cooked chicken, veggies and pasta and even the bits that fell to the bottom of the salad bowl to see what you may want to use to make your layered Mason jar salad! Next see what leftover pasta sauce, salsa or sour cream you have to make into a dressing. Once you have approximately a quarter of a cup of “dressing-sauce”, place it into the bottom of a Mason jar or container with a secure fitting lid. Next, start layering chucks of meat, vegetables, pasta and rice until your jar is half full. Fill the top half with your favorite salad greens or raw spinach. Refrigerate the jar upright until 5-10 minutes before eating, then invert your jar to let the juices roll….

Another fun “Asian”, sushi-style idea using leftovers is rice balls filled with diced pieces of meat, tempeh, avocado, cooked or raw veggies, hard or soft cheese and even hard boiled egg. Gently stuff the rice balls with your ingredients and pack into a container or baggie for easy packing. You’ll be amazed what things have drifted to the back of the fridge!! Get adventurous… and while you’re at it, dig out those little packets of soy sauce, sweet and sour. and hot mustard that end up in the bottom of everyone’s “take out menu drawer” and throw them into your lunch bag for easy dipping!
