Recipe of the Week: Layered Mason Jar Salad

Recipe of the Week: Layered Mason Jar Salad

There is quite a bit of prep involved with these pre-made salads, but trust us- it's worth it!

Each mason jar is a full lunch and, even better, they're super portable. Just grab a jar out of the fridge in the morning and shake it up before you eat it. 

In addition to looking really cute (and trendy) the layering in these salads, as well as the seal from the mason jar lid, should keep all the ingredients fresh and crunchy until you're ready to enjoy!

Servings: 4 (each jar is one serving)
