Thai Chopped Chicken Salad: Mason Jar Style


You KNOW how much I LOVE Thai food! Add that to my recent obsession with mason jars and I'm one happy gal.

This pretty lil' salad is the perfect mid-day pick-me-up for busy afternoons. Plus 30 minutes of chopping on Sunday yields a week of quick, filling, and healthy lunches!  #getinmybelly 

Now if I only I could eat these while lounging on one of Thailand's picturesque beaches...{sigh}. 

I WILL return to you, Thailand! Promise.
