Pinterest Mason Jar Salad Shakers!


Labor Day is fast upon us, and we know some of you will be rushing around like a chicken with its head cut off wondering what you can serve at your last-minute get-together. Keep reading to see the cute and kitschy ways you can serve up a variety of mason jar salads at your big end-of-Summer party!

Pinterest is an endless source of entertainment and often has us saying “Why didn’t I think of that?” We love seeing what fellow bloggers have to offer when it comes to Pinterest recipes that make parties easy and fun for all.

With so many complicated recipes on-hand, we figured you might be a bit more interested in how you can make something delicious…and interactive. You supply the luscious ingredients…and your party guests get to do all the work, which is really no work at all, simply picking their favorite ingredients and shaking up a fresh and delicious salad recipe.

My favorite ingredients for a (one quart) mason jar salad include fresh greens and rocket (very popular in England; I fell in love with it there), avocado, lemon (to keep avocado pretty), diced bacon and some diced raw onion.

Blogger extraordianre Paula Jones over at Bell’alimento created a simply gorgeous portabello mushroom and spinach salad that we adore!

Mason jars are always a terrific way to transport your lunch salad. Easy peasy! Try these stunning vegan options that include kale and quinoa!
