Well friends, it’s official. Tupperware is so 2005., I’m kidding. But Mason jar salads are definitely making their way up (again) on the food trends. And I will be the first to admit, I haven’t jumped on that mason jar salad train until now. Scratch that, I made ONE old “how to make” post with mason jar salad in 2014, but haven’t done another since.
You see, we’ve been pretty luck these past 8 years. When my husband was full time pro athlete, he trained from home, and I worked (mostly) from home. I really did not need to pack lunches for him and myself. Fast forward to this year and it’s a WHOLE NEW BALL GAME. We’ve been slammed with a dose of reality (but still counting our small victories). Meaning, he’s retired, working on jobs until we find the right path, and is no longer training 4 -5 hrs a day. Which also means lighter TO GO meals and salads are now welcomed. Haha! .
Now you can see why we’ve jumped on the mason jar salad bandwagon. It’s a nutritious, delicious, and a portable lunch or meal that you can make any way and any day (yay, I rhymed). Or you can create customized mason jar salads to keep in the fridge for when you want to enjoy it at home.
Yea, I’m diggin it! Plus it helps that I have a plethora of mason jars from kombucha brewing and my pickle obsession. Please tell me you can relate?
Anyway, despite my mason jar hoarding, I really wanted to make a few mason jar salads that put some of our melissa’s produce to use. We received a ton of bok choy in our last shipment and I just knew it would perfect for a stir fry or some type of oriental salad recipe. Those are MY FAV!
Therefore I give you (insert drum roll sound)…. .. Easy Oriental Chicken Bok Choy Mason Jar Salads! Gluten free and paleo friendly. Cause I aim to please.
You can use leftover ingredients from a chicken stir fry recipe or simply create a layered oriental chicken salad with bok choy yourself. Either way works and either way it is delish! Sesame chicken and stir fry veggies with a tangy gluten free asian dressing makes my taste buds happy. Place that in a super cute mason jar and now I feel not only happy, but super cool. Haha, my Corny Cotter Confession.
Alright friends, I’ve confessed my mason salad jar love. Now tell me, are you a mason jar salad fan? Have you been using them for years? Am I so behind the times? LOL, don’t answer that last question.
Since I don’t have any more fun Mason Jar Salads to share, I thought I’d share some of my favorites from friends!
Please hit me up with your favorite oriental salad recipe and your favorite mason jar salad recipe. I’d love to add them to my list of recipe to make.
