Mason Jar Salads are so popular today and I totally get it! Does anything make you think summer more than a group of bright brilliant colors ? Why should food be any different, right?  Add in that packing up a bunch of meals or sides for a week or hey, even a whole party has never been more fun than when using mason jars!!! 

I mean you get your food AND all those bright colors for eye candy!  O.K., so these don’t have to be for summer only and opening up your fridge in the dead of winter to see a ray of sunshine and pre-made delish waiting for you is well, the best!
