Car's Jars: A family of jarheads

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - After a day of big news, this is a pint-sized story -- well, a pint and half at the most. It's the tale of a Point Loma High graduate, Carly McHenry, who used to bring her healthy salad lunches to work in a jar.

"I was making them for myself, and then people at work caught on and asked me to make them for them too," Carly said.

That was the genesis of Car's Jars, a McHenry family project, providing healthy, freshly layered handcrafted salads that they deliver right to your home or office.

"I have seven salads that are on the menu all the time. And I have seasonal salads, every couple of weeks that I switch up," Carly said.

All of them packed tightly in mason jars

"Because they preserve the freshness. They stay fresh for five to seven days in the fridge," Carly said.

The salad dressing is poured at the bottom, so when you dump out your salad on a plate the dressing falls on top. And each jar is packed with a different rainbow array that changes each day. Car's jars most popular salad is the Chinese chicken.

"That's going to be ginger soy chicken, carrots, sugar snap peas, edamame, bok choy, broccoli cabbage, has cashews on top and also a lime," Carly explained.


Any of their signature salads can be ordered vegetarian.

"You place your order by Friday and then delivered that following Monday. So you have fresh salads for the week," Carly said.

There's a four-salad minimum order, and they have a rewards programs for recycling the mason jars.

"It's where I never thought I would be, but this is where I am," Carly said.

So the moral of this tiny tale is, when you wish upon a jar, your dreams come true.

Some of the footage used in this video story was shot using a GoPro camera.
