Cucumber Salad in a Jar

Got the idea for this recipe from Pinterest. Just thought it was so cool to put salad in a jar!

Got the recipe from here (didn’t follow it 100%, but for the most part I did)

1/4 cup cider vinegar (for each jar)
1 tablespoon sugar (for each Jar)
1 teaspoon salt (for each jar)
1/2 teaspoon freeze dried dill (for each jar)
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (so 1/4 tsp in one jar and 1/4 tsp in the other jar)
2 tablespoons olive oil
(not in the picture, but I also added 1 tbsp mustard seeds in each jar as well)
2 cucumbers, sliced (1 cucumber for each jar)
1 cup sliced red onion (half in each jar)
4 ripe tomatoes, cut into wedges (2 tomatoes in each jar)
