Mason Jar Salads Continue…

This weekend I got a little lost in the multitude of Mason Jar salad recipes available on the internet.  Of course, there are some that are just *too much* work for me, and then there are some that are just *way too healthy* for me, too.  Despite those two “restrictions, I did manage to find a few that seemed very interesting and exciting.

After perusing my fridge for vegetables in need of use, I decided to make a Vegetarian Taco Salad.  It wasn’t initially going to be just veggies, as I was going to put some grilled chicken.  However, I made a veggie version for dinner last night with the leftovers from the jars, and decided that it was perfect – and very filling, without the chicken (plus, I was tired, a little lazy, and wanted some time to run before bed).  Regardless of what I did or didn’t put in my salad, I have succeeded at week #3 of my healthy lunch packing goal!

    1. Yes! They are good in the fridge for at least 5 days, and the jars are airtight. If you put the dressing at the bottom and the leaves at the top, they don’t get soggy.
