Mason Jar Salad

This fun way to make a salad gets the whole family involved! Mason jar salad is great lunch to take to school or work and everyone can make their own version.

Plus here’s a great vinaigrette salad dressing that is easy and quick. I like to use a 2:1 ratio for oil to acid. In this case, the acid is balsamic vinegar, but feel free to use whatever vinegar you like. Clean out old jam jars and use them for homemade dressing, a great way to store your favorites!
