You guys know that I’m not a huge meal prep person, and that’s simply because I don’t like eating leftovers and I like eating based on what my body is craving. But I am also a busy person, both in my work life as a blogger, and as a mama and wife; so meal prep is essential. It saves me time, and it helps me make healthier food choices, because if I have food already made in the fridge, I’ll definitely eat it because I’m not a food waster.

One of the easiest lunches to prep for the week is a big old hearty mason jar salad, and that’s because all you need to make them is a few glass mason jars, veggies, proteins, and a delicious dressing, made with Pompeian Organic EVOO, a quality healthy fat that is an important starting point for any keto meal. Pop them in the fridge, and when you are ready to eat, just shake it all up so that the dressing is evenly distributed, and dig in. Here’s the recipe for this delicious mason jar salad with a keto-friendly Italian vinaigrette dressing!

 

MAKES 2 MASON JARS

Instructions

Make the dressing by whisking all ingredients together in a bowl. Adjust seasonings to taste. Assemble the salad jars in what ever order you like – the only “must” is that you pour the dressing at the bottom of each mason jar, and then add the rest of the salad ingredients. That way, everything stays fresh and crispy and doesn’t get soggy!

Enjoy!
