The key to a great mason jar salad? Putting it together correctly! The dressing should always go in first to prevent the salad from getting soggy. Add any grains or proteins next to protect more delicate ingredients (like the lettuce) from getting wet. Add any nuts, cheeses, raisins etc. next, followed by the lettuce you’re using! You can turn it upside down into a large bowl to serve.
