Healthy Salads To Go

The beginning of a new year prompts us to make resolutions and implement positive changes to our health and fitness. 

To help you with your goals, these mason jar salads are the perfect make ahead and healthy meals for your week.   Assemble your salads on Sunday for ready to go lunches all week!

You can find mason jars in grocery stores, craft stores, Target, Walmart, etc. I use the wide mouth quart size jars as it’s easier to add the ingredients but you can use any size jars you can find or prefer.

Using a mason jar keeps your salad fresh for up to 5 days in the refrigerator and you can add the dressing in the jar without getting your lettuce soggy. 

The basic idea when assembling is to start with the dressing first, then add the heaviest and most non-absorbent ingredients and work your way up with lighter ingredients so that even if the jar tips over, the lettuce does not get soggy.

Here are some guidelines for assembling your mason jar: 

  • First layer:  salad dressing 
  • Next layer:  hearty vegetables such as cucumber, cherry tomatoes, peppers, fennel,  etc.
  • Next layer: protein, beans, pasta or grains
  • Next layer: cheese, shredded, soft or diced vegetables or fruit. ( if using avocado, toss with lime or lemon juice first before assembling to keep from turning brown)
  • Next layer: nuts or seeds
  • Last layer: greens such as lettuce, spinach, swiss chard,  kale, etc
  • Seal the tops tightly and place in the refrigerator 
  • When ready to eat: just shake the salad onto a plate or bowl. mix ingredients together with fork to coat dressing and enjoy!
