Over the last month mason jar salads have become my go to lunch. I love them! When I first came across this new make ahead idea I thought they were just another pretty Pinterest creation. Well I was wrong. Using mason jar salads, as opposed to plastic containers, keeps the salad ingredients incredibly fresh throughout the week and makes transporting my lunch very convenient. Not to mention, these mason jar salads, are the sole reason my consumption of vegetables has more than doubled. I highly recommend you give them a try!



  • Tbsp balsamic vinegar dressing
  • 1 Quart grape tomato
  • Ounce fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cup whole grain pasta, cooked
