The author has put a lot of thought into the ingredients to make attractive salads that are both healthy and filling and you only need to purchase of a few simple items to get you going.
The first step is to make the dressing and there are 11 different dressing recipes provided. These can be stored in the fridge and do not have to be made up fresh every day. Once the dressing is made, there is a recommended order to assembling the ingredients into the jars. Starting with the dressing, items that benefit from marinading are added next. Other ingredients are layered above, according to weight and density, heaviest at the bottom. Dry items on the top can be separated by a circle of parchment if desired.
