Happy National Vegetarian Month. I know a lot of you may be growing your veggies if so this is a great fork to jar dish. And if you’re not growing your own veggies there is still time to get started just check out my fastest fall veggies to grow.
The cool thing about Mason jar salads is they offer the perfect solution for a nutritious lunch or snack on the run or as a quick and easy weeknight dinner.
Success with Mason jar salads is all about the order you add your ingredients. Always add the dressing first, followed by harder vegetables that won’t break down from the dressing. Next, add softer, more tender vegetables and legumes. Last, but not least, add green leafy vegetables and fresh herbs on top so they don’t get all soggy from the dressing.
You can experiment and use any combination of ingredients you prefer. This vegan version is filled with fresh garden goodies, but don’t hesitate to add your own touch by including rice, quinoa, beans, and/or nuts. Just be sure to add the softer ingredients toward the top to keep them nice and fresh!
