Chicken Grape and Kale Salad in a Jar

It's 7:30 Saturday morning and the sun is making a brave appearance after a few days of much needed rain. That said, with the day spread out before me I'm thinking that time spent outdoors would be amazing. Living on Vancouver Island as I do, the world truly is my oyster in the summer as there are so many beautiful beaches, and parks, and mountains, and trails to explore.

And what better to take on an exploratory excursion than a picnic lunch?

One big jar of this delicious (and healthy) salad will easily feed four people. Just pack it to go in a cooler or heat proof bag along with a large plastic bowl. When you get to your desired destination for lunch, dump it into the bowl, toss it up, and serve.

So good!

And if you want to stop by the Casa de Kitchen Witch to chat, join me on my porch as I toss this one together!
