Every Season Salad Tips:
- Mason Jar Salads are perfect for packing to-go. In fact, almost any salad is mason jar friendly! But mason jar salads aren’t just for travel—they’re a time-saving make-ahead meal to enjoy at home, too! (Of course, you don’t have to eat it out of the mason jar, they’re just as tasty in a bowl.)
- Get creative! Swap in seasonal veggies or sub in your favourite dressing. Eating healthy is easy when you use what you have on-hand or what’s in season. You can even mix up the croutons by changing the type of bread.
