A couple months ago I discovered something amazing on Pinterest. Mason Jar Salads. I made one, and since then, it has revolutionized the way I plan and prep my meals. Building a salad in a mason jar not only keeps it fresh, but also allows you to have a nutritious, satisfying lunch all in one container! You don’t even have to remember the dressing. Wave goodbye to the pesky tupperware container that is only suitable for small amounts of liquids and leaks in your new bag.  Rude.

When building your mason jar salad, it is important to layer your ingredients correctly.
