Mason Jar Salad

The trick to the mason jar salad is all in the layering—start with the dressing, and then add any combination of ingredients that sounds good, finishing with the lettuce or herbs on top. Make your jars on a Sunday afternoon, and you’ll have fresh, tasty salads ready to grab on your way out the door all week long—they’ll stay fresh up to five days.
