  • Mason Jar Salad Recipes For Healthy Office Lunches

    Mason jar Salad

    The fabulous thing about a Mason Jar Salad is that you can prepare a whole batch in advance. Do the prepping on a Sunday, and you’re assured of a fresh, healthy meal for lunch for the next 5 days. Mix up the recipes, so there’s a surprise in store every day. And enjoy the goodness of a fresh salad that hasn’t wilted or turned soggy because you fixed it several days ago.

    Here are some great recipes for Mason Jar Salads to get you inspired. Remember to choose wide-mouthed, glass canning jars for this purpose, as they are easier to load and shake out. Pint-sized jars are great for individual-sized portions. Use quart-sized jars for a larger lunch, or if you’ve got a lot of extra, fun, toppings. For a shared office lunch, go for the 2-quart jars.

    Also, remember to fill the jars from heavy to light, wet to dry, and the dressing always goes in first.
