4 to 6 tablespoons salad cream, mixed with a little cider apple vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh chives, finely chopped
A simple and yet stunning summer salad in a jar, which makes it perfect for picnics and BBQ's; easily made, this salad will keep fresh without the dressing if made the night before.
Arrange the salad in 4 to 6 clean jam jars, in the order of the ingredients from the lettuce to the cucumber; mix the salad cream with a little vinegar, to make it slightly runny, season to taste with salt and pepper and drizzle over the top of the salads.
Sprinkle with fresh chopped chives and put the lids on top of the jars, before chilling in the fridge for up to 4 hours before serving.
