HOW DO YOU EAT SALAD IN A MASON JAR?

While it seems like it would be challenging to eat from a jar, it’s actually quite easy and we love it! Jars are portable, easier to eat at your desk, and we love that they are a grab and go option…as in grab it from my fridge and go to my table, lol. Other than that, you just eat it with a fork!

TIPS TO KEEP SALAD FROM GETTING SOGGY

My biggest gaggy (is that a word?) thing ever is mushy stuff and limp greens. You might not stomach it. So when creating these salads in a jar, the first thing we did was test ways to keep them from getting soggy. Because we wanted this a full grab and go option, we had to find a way to include the dressing in the jar and keep the soggy factor low. And here is what every trial told me: put the dressing at the bottom and the greens at the top.

It’s really that simple. Things like beans and veggies won’t absorb the dressing like greens will. Surprisingly, the cooked rice and pasta did well towards the bottom as well.

HOW LONG DOES SALAD IN A JAR LAST?

If you follow the tips and put the dressing at the bottom and the greens at the top, these mason jar salads should still taste great after 2-3 days and can still be decent up to 5 days. After that, the ingredients start to wilt and lose texture and flavor.

If made the night before, these are perfect as a vegan picnic food! They travel well and are easy to eat!
