Greek Mason Jar Salads (Make Ahead) – Tons of protein and fresh Greek flavors make this dish a perfect make ahead lunch!

My newest obsession is the ‘salad in a mason jar’ trend.  As much as I love meal prep, I can’t believe I haven’t tried this sooner!  It’s kind of genius…everything can be made ahead and layered including the dressing, without getting soggy.  The secret is in the layering order!  To keep it super simple, just shake and eat directly from the jar.  Or pour everything into a bowl for a perfectly built salad! 

If this recipe looks familiar, it’s because I love these Greek Salad Power Bowls so much that I just had to share one more way to enjoy them.  You can modify the amounts in this recipe according to how large/small of a serving you like.  I used large mason jars for a pretty big serving, but pint jars would be perfect for a smaller serving size.  You can’t go wrong with this combination for lunch.  Plenty of satisfying flavor and protein to last you through the day.  For the dressing, try Primal Kitchen’s Greek Vinaigrette from Thrive Market – it’s my favorite!
