I made a wonderful pasta salad full of fresh vegetables and seasoned with a little olive oil, white wine vinegar, salt and pepper.
The vegetables I added were finely chopped red, green and yellow bell peppers, a cucumber, grape tomatoes, fresh chives and fresh basil. I used bow tie pasta.
Now I washed a bunch of jam jars and placed the pasta salad inside the jar about half way, then I added a layer of shredded rotisserie chicken and topped with another layer of pasta salad.
It is a picnic in a jar! I made these to serve at a tennis match. Since I decided to add a little "pink" to my October posts in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness - I decorated the jars with pink paper, ribbons and forks.
The top of the lid is blah and boring - so I added a little pink with a piece of pink paper!
Now isn't that better?
The I tied the jar with pink polka dot ribbon and wedged a fork inside the ribbon.
This is a great idea to bring to a potluck or BBQ and they are really easy to make! The trick is to find a place that sells the jars. I bought my jars at ACE Hardware store.
