I love mason jars. And by love, I mean that my kitchen has a whole corner cabinet dedicated to them! H thinks I need to get rid of some, but I think he's wrong.

So since I love mason jars, it only makes sense that I love mason jars! They are so easy to prepare and can be easily transported for a meal or even a picnic. In addition, they are quite compact, so they do not take up much space in your bag.

Anyway, today I will share with you what I like to call "the same but different" meals. I get a bunch of questions on how not to get bored of eating the same food every day, so here’s a delicious solution!

We have a lot of overlapping ingredients in these "same but different" mason can salad ideas, but there is also a difference in each jar, so you won't get bored eating the same salad every day. Is the sauce different or is it a different combination from the vegetables. For the sake of simplicity, I only stuck to one protein, so you don't have to prepare several things over the weekend.

Which jars are best for Mason Jar salads

I don't know about you, but I like my salads Large. So in order to fit more than 2 pieces of chicken in my wall jar, I use either a 750mL or 1L jar. I used to use smaller pint jars, but I prefer much larger ones. In the photos in this post, I use 1L cans (it's close to mine).

I also prefer the jars to be wide mouthed so that there is a larger opening where you can pour in and out your ingredients! You can use the metal lid that came with the masonry jars or use them with plastic.

But don't feel obligated to run out and sell jars to make mason jar salads! One of my favorite alternatives is pasta sauce jars! The jars are usually between 600 and 700 ml, so they work great.

How to Pack Mason Jar Salads |

To keep your mason jar salads fresh, it is important to layer the ingredients properly. Lay the salad in a mason jar:

  • dressing
  • hard vegetables
  • lightning
  • terad
  • leafy greens

How to Eat a Mason's Salad |

If your workplace has a kitchen with bowls or storage, I usually just throw them in a bowl. Because I pack my mason jars quite tightly, it can be difficult to eat it straight from the jar.

If you do not have access to the bowl, turn the jar upside down before eating. This lets the salad dressing work through the jar. Also shake well. The larger the jar, the easier it is to mix everything inside because you probably have a little space. Also, if you plan to eat straight from the jar, you should probably chop your leafy greens to make them more bite-sized.

How long does a mason stay fresh?

My mason jar salads usually last 4-5 days when stored properly in the refrigerator. The farther away your leafy vegetables and grains are from the sauce, the less likely they are to get wet and lose their crispness.
