A salad in a mason jar? Seems kinda Pinterest-y right? Well, there’s actually great reasons to put a salad in a jar… First of all, since the jar is vertical, any dressing you pour into it will run down to the rest of the salad, so you will get dressing on every bite. You also can use less dressing, meaning you will consume fewer calories without sacrificing taste. Since the jar has a cap, you can shake it after you put the dressing on to make sure the dressing disperses evenly.
