If you're looking for an easy way to bring your lunch to work or on the go, salads in a jar are a great way to go. This easy recipe will teach you how to make a basic garden salad with a delicious balsamic vinaigrette. It will show you the proper way to stack your ingredients so that nothing get soggy and so that it will be easy to dump out in a bowl or on a plate once you get where you're going. It also makes it easy to eat in the salad in the jar -- just shake up your mason jar so that you can mix up the dressing and enjoy!


  • balsamic vinaigrette
  • rotisserie chicken
  • carrots
  • mushrooms
  • tomatoes
  • green (or regular) onions
  • bacon bits
  • lettuce mixture of your choice


Layer ingredients in a mason jar however you want, making sure that the dressing goes on the bottom and the lettuce goes on the top.

Usually to save time I'll make a big base salad and have add ins here and there. But by the end of the week, everything looks like it's been there way too long. lol, This recipe is everything! I'm such a big fan of salads but making them every day sometimes is just too time-consuming. I can't believe I never thought of this before...and you can probably make a salad for every day of the week without it getting mushy.
