Vegan Recipe: Mason Jar Salad

Eating healthy when on the go can be a challenge for all of us — but it doesn't have to be. Here's an easy, fun and healthy way to eat well, even in the car.

As some of you may know, I love layering salads. It makes them so much more interesting, delicious and healthy, plus I get to use whatever is available or leftover in my fridge. Putting them in a Mason jar is just plain fun, and it keeps the salad fresh and spill proof.

You can layer any combination of ingredients to fit your diet; keep the dressing in a small plastic container until ready to pour, and enjoy your transportable meal.

Here's how I created mine. But first, a little tip to make it pretty as well as good to eat: place the heaviest ingredient on the bottom and work up, ending with the lightest on top.


  • First layer: cubed avocado
  • Second layer: sliced grape tomatoes
  • Third layer: sliced romaine
  • Forth layer: shredded carrots
  • Fifth layer: leftover sautéed kale
  • Sixth layer: a mix of nuts and seeds
  • Seventh layer: baby arugula
  • Dressing: a simple oil and balsamic vinaigrette

Have fun and eat well.
