3 different mason jar salad ideas! Caprese Pasta Salad, Chickpea Salad, and Greek Pasta Salad... I feel like I'd rather leave out the pasta parts

  • Lois Lowery

    I love your idea. I'll find some quart jars and get busy with my salads. Just how long does one salad last (unopened) in the fridge?

  • Chelsea Foster

    I have made salads on Sunday for the 5 weekdays and my salads stayed fresh all the way through Friday!

    The key is to make sure all of your wet items are at the bottom, drier items in the center, and lettuce at the top to keep it from wilting :)

  • Lois Lowery

    Thanks, I'm going to try it. Such a wonderful idea.

Lemon, Cilantro and Avocado Quinoa Salad! Must EAT!!!

salad in a jar

  • Melissa West

    I'm going to try this!

  • Jo Dunn

    Melissa, it worked really well for me . . jarred salads are especially good for women who work - make them up ahead and off you go! I DO, however, suggest that you have the dressing in a separate container. For me, the dressing in the jar worked well for the first three days or so .. the last of the jars of salad were a little dressing heavy by the time the jars were used! Hope it works well for you!

    @Katie Kemi & @Linda Vuicich we are going to get together and build some salads in a jar for a week!! Okay?

  • Linda Vuicich

    Sounds good to me.

Cute idea for party food ... if I was rich, I'd make tiny mason jar salads for each guest! =)

Mozzarella, tomatoe, and avocado salad - I bet chicken would taste good with this too!

arugula and spinach leaf mix, cucumber edamame, bacon, diced/crushed pecans, fresh mozzarella ripped apart (optional), add vinaigrette of choice! =)

Just tried this at Trader Joes & LOVED it! Ingredients: Romaine lettuce (would prob swap for spinach), corn, chopped red cabbage, chopped green onions, diced red bell peppers, cooked/cooled Israeli couscous, dried currants, grated asiago cheese, cubed/sliced/shredded grilled chicken breast, toasted pecans, & Trader Joe's Sweet Basil Dressing

Chicken "Caesar" Salad - Ingredients (from bottom to top): caesar dressing, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, yellow/orange bell peppers, corn, kidney beans, diced almonds, broiled chicken breast, parmesan cheese (or asiago), and spinach. =)
