  1. Layer Dressing:

    • Begin by adding your preferred salad dressing to the bottom of each Mason jar. This helps prevent the salad from getting soggy. Use about 1-2 tablespoons of dressing per jar, depending on your preference.
  2. Layer Salad Ingredients:

    • Layer the remaining ingredients in the Mason jars in the following order, packing them down slightly after each addition:
      • Tomatoes
      • Onion slices
      • Cucumber slices
      • Shredded cheese
      • Bacon bits
      • Lettuce
  3. Seal and Store:

    • Seal the Mason jars tightly with their lids.
  4. Serve or Store:

    • You can either serve the salads immediately or store them in the refrigerator for later use.
    • If storing, Mason jar salads can typically last for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator, depending on the freshness of the ingredients used.
  5. Mix and Eat:

    • When you’re ready to eat, simply shake the Mason jar vigorously to distribute the dressing evenly throughout the salad.
    • Pour the salad into a bowl or eat directly from the Mason jar.

Note: Feel free to customize your Mason jar salads with additional ingredients such as grilled chicken, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, nuts, or seeds. Just ensure that the ingredients are layered properly to maintain freshness and prevent sogginess. Enjoy your convenient and delicious Mason jar salad!
