Just wanted share one of my favorite lunch meals! Mason Jar salads :D You can layer a variety of veggies, grains, proteins, lettuce and dressing in one jar. The layering method keeps the wet and dry ingredients separate. I usually use a quart jar.

Layer in this order starting at the bottom:
Chopped veggies like carrots, celery, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, peppers, radish, onions...
Protein like cooked meats, beans, tofu, sliced hardboiled eggs...
Grains like rice, pasta, quinoa...
Lettuce, spinach, etc goes on top
On the very top you can add delicate things like seeds, nuts, fresh herbs, fancy cheese, some fruits...

You can make up to 5 in advance and store them in the fridge.

Also they are really cute :p

This site has pics, recipes and ideas:

Anyone else make these?
