COSI Recipes: Greek Salad in a Jar

Guests that have seen the COSI team garden, which is viewable from the Level 2 hallway on the way to the International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes, know that the COSI team likes to eat our vegetables.

There are many good reasons to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables and the USDA recommends filling half of your plate with them. Here at COSI, in addition to liking to eat our greens, we also like using items for new and interesting purposes. One way to use some of the screw-top jars you may have laying around the house and some of that surplus produce at the same time is to make jar salads.
