Salad jars make my week easier. I made my ranch dressing for this one, but there is nothing wrong with buying yours! I also take it easy and buy shredded carrots.

Dressing:
Put the following in the food processor and go to town
1/4 c. Mayo
1/4 c. Sour cream
1/2 c. Buttermilk
1/2 small onion
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. parsley
1 tbsp. fresh dill (I go nuts with this because I love it and it grows in the cracks of my driveway)
1 lemon, juiced
Salt and pepper
Pinch of cayenne

Salad:
Make your roasted BBQ cauliflower by putting the florets of one head of cauliflower on a sprayed baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Drizzle about 1/4 c. Of your favorite BBQ sauce on top, toss and bake an additional 5 minutes. Let cool.

Layer the following in this order, in a mason jar (makes 4 jars)
3 tbsp. ranch dressing
1 can black beans, rinsed and divided
Roasted BBQ cauliflower, divided
1/4 c. Corn
1/4 c. Shredded carrot
1/2 of a large red onion, chopped and divided
1 avocado, chopped and divided
Arugula to top
