Mason Jar Pre-made Salads:

My husband and I did this DIY pre-made lunch for each of us for the week. We each made 4 salads with different salad dressings, put them in the fridge and grabbed one for lunch on the go, or for a nice side to dinner. It stayed fresh and came in handy.

Tips:
Always put the salad dressing first, then layer the harder vegetables, lettuce last. This will create a barrier so the lettuce doesn’t get soggy.
They will stay fresh for 4-5 days.
Use enough salad dressing.
I used croutons and they absorbed moisture and got soggy.
Use any vegetables, cheese, and greens you desire!
I bought a 12 pack of mason jars from Walmart. I got the wide-mouth kind, it’s easier to get your fork in! They were about $12 for the pack.

I gathered everything I like in my salad and did a little salad workshop on a Sunday. That way there was 8 salads all ready to go in the fridge.

My husband doesn’t get a lunch break a lot of days; so when he leaves for work, he simply grabs a salad jar and Ta-da, lunch!
What kinds of things do you put in your salad?
