While we’re still in summer, we tend to crave lighter and healthier food options. Mason jar salads are an awesome way to create your own masterpiece. You can use a whole array of fresh and local ingredients to make a delicious work of art. From experience, using plastic containers can lead to soggy vegetables and salad. More and more people are turning to mason jars as they are environmentally friendly and maintain the freshness of the salad. Canning jars have so many great uses from smoothies on the go to piling them high with veggies. Try to find a wider mouth mason jar so it’s easier for you to get all of the salad ingredients inside. Meal prepping on a Sunday is a great way to save time during the week. There is no need to vacuum seal the mason jars. Once you make your Mason jar salads and place a lid on them, they will last up to 5 days in the fridge.

Mason Jar Salad

Prep Time
Total Time



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 juice of lemon
  • 1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp Himalayan salt


  • 1/2 cup baby tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1/2 cup radish
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • 1 cup mixed greens
  • 1 cup sprouts


Always place dressing on the bottom. This will ensure the rest of the salad will remain crisp and delicious. The next layer would be items that don’t soak up the salad dressing such as tomatoes, cauliflower, peas or peppers. The next layer would be softer veggies such as avocado, squash, onions, cabbage, broccoli, corn, celery, zucchini or cucumbers. Then add your grains such as quinoa, edamame, chickpeas or brown rice. Add your choice of lettuce such as arugula, spinach, spring mix or kale. Lastly, add any desired protein on top.

Now all that’s left is to shake the salad and eat away!
