One of our favorite ways to utilize a mason jar is by making a salad. Mason jar salads are versatile, tasty, and super easy to assemble. Here are some ways you can upgrade your practices to make the best mason jar salad:
The beauty of a salad is that you can include anything you want. As long as you have ingredients you like, you can create a delicious salad that totally suits your preferences.
You can use a variety of ingredients in a mason jar salad. Here are some of our favorites:
Just as you avoid adding certain ingredients that have too much moisture, it’s important that you layer your ingredients in a certain way to avoid a soggy salad.
Layer your mason jar salad starting with your protein at the bottom of the jar, adding fruits and vegetables on top of that, then grains, greens, and toppings. Do not add your dressing into the jar, otherwise the salad will get very, very soggy.
Another way you can have fun with mason jar salads is by utilizing different sizes of jars. This can give you a salad for a snack or a full meal, and it can allow you to pack different ingredients.
If you are making a big salad for a lot of people, you can put the greens in a large mason jar, and store all your additional ingredients and toppings and smaller jars. This will keep all the ingredients fresh, and be a simple way to transport.
You can also utilize different sized jars for dressings. A small jar is perfect for bringing a dressing along with you and adding it when it is time to assemble or toss your salad.
You can also utilize the different size jars to mix and match. If you are unsure of what you want on your salad from day to day, prep by putting different ingredients in different sized jars and bringing along a different assortment each day.
You can add different greens with different proteins and all the same toppings. Or you can have the same greens and proteins and top with different vegetables and grains. Mixing and matching gives you even more variety to your meal. Who says salads are boring?
Mason jars are perfect for dressing. They’re excellent for making the dressing because you can easily shake to mix the ingredients, and they’re fantastic for storing.
