If you want to eat more healthy, clean foods, but don’t want to spend a bunch of time preparing meals, then mason jar salad recipes are just what you’re looking for.
Because they make eating healthy foods so much more convenient.
But I’ll be honest, when I first discovered mason jar salads, my first thought was “now that’s some hipster nonsense”. A mason jar? Seriously?
But turns out that the mason jar isn’t just cute, it super functional as well.
WHY MASON JAR SALADS ARE AMAZING
Thing is, when packed properly, the mason jar helps to preserve the salad contents so you can be eating them for days. And the veggies are still crisp and delicious.
Plus, the happiness that comes from opening the refrigerator to a neat row of gorgeous mason jar salads is pretty much priceless.
And they seriously make my life about a million times easier. Because in one hour (or less) I can bust out 10 tasty salads (for me and the hubs) that are perfectly preserved and can be eaten throughout the week.
It’s the easiest (and tastiest) way to load up on veggies throughout the week.
You chop once, clean up once–but then eat fresh and tasty salads for days. It’s genius.
As a busy working mom of 4, these salads have made it painless and easy to eat healthy while avoiding daily veggie chopping.
While they can be used for meals, you can also make them to be used as side salads served with family dinners. No matter how you use them, they’ll save time and make your life healthier and easier.
WHAT YOU NEED FOR MASON JAR SALADS
- Wide-Mouth Quart Mason Jars – Getting wide-mouth jars is A MUST. Otherwise, it’s going to be a major pain to get the salads both in and out of the jar.
- Wide-Mouth Plastic Lids – While I used metal lids for a long time, once I switched to these it was no going back. Way easier to use and clean and use.
- A good knife for chopping
- Cutting Boards
