Sardines & Cabbage Salad


I make ahead most of my meals. I recently discovered mason jar salads (yes, i know its been around for years) and now make five salads packed and ready in the regrigerator for my lunches during the week. I love the convenience of it. Just grab one on the way out the door. This salad is one of the five. I’ll post the rest up one by one. Please excuse my image above. I actualyl packed this particular one into a smaller jar when I really could have used a much larger one. You can substitue mackerel for sardines.
