Mason Jar Salad Recipe

January 2, 2015

Is one of your resolutions to eat healthier in 2015? How about creating a portable salad for lunch? Mason Jar Salads are on point! You can pick up a quart mason jar at many retail outlets. You can make a Mason Jar Salad with our salad bar or purchase the ingredients in advance (and have enough for multiple salads). Mason Jar Salad Directions 1. Choose a dressing. Since you are trying to reach your healthy goal, pick a lighter vinaigrette (although you can use any salad dressing you would like). 2. Add a layer of vegetables. This layer, if you will, guards the rest of the salad from the dressing, so pick vegetables that go well with your dressing such as tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, celery, carrots or peppers. 3. Add a second layer of veggies. This is the less hearty level of vegetables such as mushrooms, zucchini, sprouts, green beans, corn or avocado. 4. Protein and cheese. Add ham, turkey, egg and whatever cheese you like! 5. The final layer is lettuce – you want to keep this as far away from the dressing as possible in order to not get soggy.
