Street Taco Salad in a Jar

I’ve done a mason jar salad before and it’s all about the layers. I love making these the night before when I know I’m going to have a busy day. I keep in the refrigerator max two days.

How to Make a Mason Jar Salad
Here are the layers. Be sure to follow.
All ingredients are from ALDI.

Cook carnitas according to package and trim fat.

Mix salsa( jarred or fresh) with ranch, cilantro and juice of one lime

Wash and drain black beans

Dice avocado, jalapeño, and red pepper

Place 1/4 cup of dressing in the bottom of the jar. Add handful of red and green peppers. Then add two spoonfuls of beans. Next place desired amount of pork. Top with shredded lettuce and avocado.

You can also add cheese before the avocado and corn before the beans.


I will use the rest of the pork for nachos and the beans for burgers. Recipes to follow.
