We all know life can get feverish, maybe not leaving enough time for you to organize a dinner that is fresh or grill up a delectable treat. Mason jar salads that mix those elements together and will keep nicely for about 5 days, making them a great grab n’ go choice!
Packing the jars full guarantees a minimum amount of air in the jar, maintaining the freshness of your salad. A moisture barrier can be constructed with the veggies to prevent the ingredients from mixing together. Seal tightly and put the containers in your fridge. Just pour into a dish, when you are ready to eat and enjoy!
