Meals on the go: Mason Jar Salads

I know, I know, you’re probably thinking, “Not another mason jar post”. It seems as if everywhere you turn, you see mason jars being used for everything from drinking glasses to light fixtures. It’s as if the mason jar has revolutionized a generation of pinners. But I digress..

Today, I’ll be using the mason jar in its most practical form, a jar. After being invited to a picnic, this weekend, I was faced with the dilemma of what to bring. I knew I wanted to keep it simple and light but still feel like I prepared a meal. After some hard thinking (5 minutes), I decided to make a summer salad and since it was for a picnic I figured I’d throw it mason jar. It’s funny, how people always seem to be more impressed when you give them something in a mason jar (ie. cookie mix, cupcakes, candles).


But, back to the salads..

  • Strawberries
  • Chickpeas
  • Spinach
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Raspberry Vinaigrette






The key to avoiding a soggy salad, is to build it from wet to dry. Your dressing should always be on the bottom and your dry ingredients should end up on top.
