For the Salad Jar

  1. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, spoon in a layer of Greek dressing on the bottom.
  2. Add ingredients in layers, in the same order as the list above: E.g., chickpeas, wheat berries, sun-dried olives, red onion, tomatoes, cucumber, arugula, and boiled egg.
  3. Place lid on jar and store in the refrigerator.  It will keep for approximately 3 days.
  4. Before serving, bring to room temperature for about half an hour to allow the olive oil in the dressing to liquify again. Then shake to dress all of the ingredients and pour onto a plate. Enjoy!
