    4 measuring spoons, one with sugar, one with peppercorns, one with salt and fourth with oil, also a measuring cup with vinegar

  • To sterilize jars, preheat oven to 215F. Wash jars and lids, place them in an oven for about 15 minutes or until completely dry. Fill jars with salad while it's still hot. Close all lids really tight and put all jars upside down. Cover with towel and let them sit there for 4-5 hours.

  • Store canned salad in a cool place for several months. Let it sit for at least a couple of weeks, before opening; it gets better with time. But if you aren't patient like me, you can go ahead and eat some right away.
