Mason Jar Salad

We often have a salad with our dinner. Sometimes, you want to mix it up a little. Make it  look a little different. These mason jar salads did just that. Great greens, juicy explode-in-your-mouth tomatoes, and a few croutons, all topped with homemade dressings. It might be just a salad, but put it in a Mason jar and everyone ‘oooohs’ and ‘aaaaahs’, just like they do for my classic wedge salads.Mason Jar SaladYou can put anything you want into these salads. As long as it’ll fit through the jar opening. I used jelly jars since they are big around the base, and have a large mouth, making it easier to get to the salad.

For dressings, I like to make jars of my homemade Catalina dressing or homemade Italian dressing.
