Tex Mex Vegetarian Mason Jar Salad…

My first experience with a mason jar salad was at a friend’s house as she hosted a salad party and we all brought an ingredient and got to take home 4 different jars of salad. It was a blast and now I want to host one.

You always have to put the dressing on the bottom then crunchy vegetables. Cheese and avocado must go on top of the lettuce. These steps are very important.

Use a large mason jar so you can add a good bit of lettuce and leave room up top so you can shake it. I have made so many variations of these as I use to eat them at my office or in my car, as I traveled a lot at my old job.

I made my mom and I these and we ate them in a gazebo amongst roses at The Hershey Gardens this week and it was awesome.

Dressing- mix ranch with salsa

Crunchy vegetables- diced tomatoes and peppers

Starch- corn, black beans and roasted sweet potatoes

Butter lettuce and scallions

Shredded cheddar

PS I would have used avocado if I had one.

Shake when ready to eat. Will last in frig up to 3 days. I like to eat after one or two.
