The key to keeping this flavorful salad fresh AF until you’re ready to eat? It’s all in the carefully-crafted layering technique detailed below!
HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR MASON JAR SALAD EXPERIENCE:
LAYER IT: The key to a mason jar salad that will stay fresh until lunch is packing it in layers. Always start with the salad dressing at the bottom, keeping it separate from the greens to prevent wilting. When you’re ready to eat, make sure the mason jar lid is secured and simply shake until the dressing is evenly combined with the other ingredients!
USE MCT GREEN GODDESS SALAD DRESSING: Don’t forget the key ingredient! For a salad that will truly satisfy your hunger and kick your energy up a notch, make sure to use our delicious, creamy Green Goddess Salad Dressing made with energy-boosting MCT oil!
GET CREATIVE WITH QUANTITIES: The beauty of a salad recipe is that you don’t have to be strict with the measurements. Follow your gut by adding more or less of any of the ingredients.
CHOOSE SUGAR-FREE BACON: Did you know that most bacon contains sugar? But sugar is totally unnecessary for a drool-worthy bacon! When making your selection, be sure to read the label and choose a high quality brand that’s not only free of sugar, but is also nitrate-, hormone-, and antibiotic-free!
EASY MEAL PREP: When stored in the refrigerator and assembled in layers per the recipe instructions below, this salad will stay fresh for up to 4-5 days, making this the perfect recipe to meal prep for a busy week ahead!
