Mason jar Salad Ideas to Try at Home

We love Mason jar salads because they’re the perfect grab-and-go lunches! From lunch time at the workplace to snacks on a road trip; these salads are easy-to-make, yummy and portable.

The Secret To Tasty Mason Jar Salad

The key to the perfect salad in a mason jar is all in the order:

  1. Make sure that the dressing of the salad goes in first. Add 1-4 tablespoons of dressing at the bottom—the amount depends on the number of ingredients you’re going to add in your salad. Adding dressing at the bottom prevents the veggies and lettuce from getting mushy.
  2. Then add your choice of protein (like chickpeas, chicken or edamame) or grain (like quinoa) or anything else chunky and big. This layer keeps the dressing separate from the delicate ingredients and helps add extra flavor to your proteins.
  3. Then add soft veggies, roasted nuts or fruits. This layer will include all the ingredients other than your leafy greens. Some common options are mushrooms, cheese, rice, pasta, and zucchini.
  4. Your leafy greens will go in last. While some people eat their salad straight from the Mason jar, some unload the salad into a bowl. This way, the greens make the salad bed (since they went in last) and the rest of the ingredients slowly trickle through the salad.

Mason jars have pretty much changed the salad game! Our aim is to pack salad jars with flavorful combinations, fresh veggies and proteins so that you’re energized after lunch. That’s where the beauty of these jars comes in!
