Salads in a Jar

Good morning y’all!  Have you ever tried Salads in a Jar? If you have not, you really should.  They are quite the popular thing around our house.  When you are pressed for time or just plain busy (as everyone seems to be these days) but you are trying to be good and prepare healthy lunches for the week, these ideas for Salads in a Jar are just what you need. They are also super delicious and convenient to grab from the fridge during the morning rush out the door. The combinations of ingredients are only limited by your imagination. Here are a couple that our family likes to get you started.

Honey Mustard Turkey Pasta Salad:

  • Honey Mustard Dressing
  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese-cubed
  • Roasted Turkey Breast-cubed
  • Sunflower seeds (unsalted)
  • Green grapes-cut in half
  • Petite green peas- blanched
  • Gemelli pasta (or your preferred pasta shape)

Just make an assembly line with the mason jars and begin with the salad dressing, followed by the proteins, then ending with veggies.

Try to make sure that all of your ingredients are made to be bite size and small enough to fit into the jar. Put as much or as little of any of the ingredients as you wish.

  • Broccoli florets

Remember to begin with the dressings, then the proteins, and end with the lettuce on top before you tighten on those lids.

If you are feeling adventurous, you can even get the kiddos involved in making and creating their own nutritious Salads in a Jar for their lunches! Make plenty ahead of time and refrigerate for up to 5-7 days…if they last that long!

Recipe Notes

I do not typically use store bought dressings but there are a few on the market that pass my "Mom label reading inspection."  Briannas' Brand is one of my go-to dressings and their Honey Mustard is a wonderful pairing with this salad.
