Now grab the condiment container and it's lid. I usually buy a pack of these from the market or ask for a few extra when I'm at a restaurant. You will also need to take out your dressing of choice.

Fill the container with dressing and close the lid. I don't normally fill the container to the top because I like very little dressing. The dressing in picture is a Caesar Vinaigrette. Pretty tasty!

Now! Place the condiment container on too of your salad. You may have to push the container down a bit if you've stuffed the jar to the top. That's perfectly A-OK!\ud83d\ude04\ud83d\udc4c

Now you're ready to throw the jar in your bag, purse, cargo pants pocket😉, or wherever! It's convenient as well as a nice salad/dressing proportion.

When I'm ready to eat I open my jar and the dressing container, and pour the dressing on the top and sides of salad.

I make about three to five of these at a time and store in the fridge to save time during the week. Hope you enjoy and have fun! 😄👍
