There’s a reason why mason jar salads are so popular – they’re so quick and easy! These healthy salad recipes can be prepped a week ahead, saving you both time and money. They’re also great when you’re on-the-go, whether you’re packing for picnics and whipping up work lunches. It’s definitely better and healthier than eating out! Check out 6 of my favorite mason jar salad recipes you can make right at home.
1. Balsamic Chicken Salad
If it’s your first time making mason jar salad recipes, start easy. Balsamic chicken salad is a no-fail dish you’ll have a breeze making!
2. Artichoke Tortellini Pasta
Artichokes may seem humble, but they’re actually a superfood you should add to your diet ASAP! They’re rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber, and help with everything from digestion to cholesterol. Make artichoke tortellini pasta in a mason jar for lunch today!
3. Caprese Salad
Vegetarians, rejoice! Give your meal a boost of protein and calcium by adding caprese into your mason jar salad recipes. It’s one of my favorite cheeses!
4. Fresh Corn, Edamame and Radish Salad
Edamame beans are a popular snack in Japan. They’re also rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals, and may even reduce the risk of breast cancer! I like my edamame with fresh corn and radish. How about you?
5. Veggie Salad with Lemon Dressing
I love the colors of this salad! Great-looking food is just so much more appetizing, don’t you agree? This is one of my all-time favorite mason jar salad recipes. I’d eat it every day if I could!
6. Greek Salad
I take my Greek salad in a jar, how about you? Here’s a pro tip I learned from this Greek salad recipe: pour your dressing at the bottom of the jar (before you put the ingredients in) to keep the other veggies fresh and crisp! Then when it’s time to eat, just shake the jar!
