If you like to take a salad for lunch but don’t have time to prepare it in the morning, I have the solution for you. By using a mason jar and putting the dressing in first, you can make salads ahead of time.

When you are ready to eat, just give the salad a shake and enjoy. Feel free to change up the ingredients of the salad.

Just remember to always place the greens at the top of the jar to keep them from coming into contact with the dressing.
