If you haven’t tried Salad In A Jar, you are missing out!

These salads stay fresh for 5+ days!  Really, I’m not joking – fresh, crispy, tangy, and delish!  I love them so much that this is the second posting of mason jar salads.  Check these out.

The secret to their freshness is to layer them properly.  Learn more about the layering process click here.

I started dreaming about all of the wonderful variations that I could make in these jars and I thought you would want these next two recipes, because they are incredibly tasty!

Tips:Salad in a jar

If you prefer a creamy pasta salad replace the olive oil with 2 Tbsp of veganaise.

Remember, you can always use fresh herbs.  Keep in mind that dried herbs are more potent, so you will probably need three times the amount of fresh as dried.

These recipes are pretty forgiving, so use what you have on hand and like to eat.
