Vietnamese Inspired Salad in a Jar

Print Recipe Pin Recipe
I have been loving Salad in a Jars for lunch lately – not only are they healthy, they are also budget friendly! This recipe has been inspired by Jamal Campbell, who is the Offensive Lineman for the Toronto Argos. He loves to have Vietnamese food before his games, which include broccoli, vermicelli, and chicken.
