5-Ingredient Salad in a Jar (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free)


When trying to eat clean, it’s frustrating that take-out salads can be just as caloric as a double cheeseburger. A salad in a mason jar is an easy way to make lunch ahead of time and make sure all of your ingredients remain intact on your way to work or school.

Further Food Commentary:

I love mason jars for everything from water to soup to salad! Packing your lunch in this glass container prevents any chemicals from plastic possibly leaching into your food and is a great way to go green and ensure portion control. This recipe is a great base for any lunch you want to pack and if you are all out of eggs toss in some beans and a sliced avocado for another healthy meal on the go! Who needs a cheeseburger when you have a mason jar?
