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.

  1. To make the dressing, whisk together vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, sugar and vegetable oil.
  2. Wash and tear lettuce into a bowl, add carrots, peppers, celery to bowl and toss. Add bean sprouts, nuts and seeds last (since they're dry ingredients).
  3. If you make extra dressing, chicken tenderloins marinated in it overnight and then grilled are DELICIOUS! Great way to add additional protein to your meal.
