Mason Jar Garden Salad with Creamy Cheese & Herb Dressing

Mason Jar Garden Salad with Creamy Cheese & Herb Dressing

This salad is so easy and quick, you can make 8 servings of salad and dressing in less than 20 minutes. I love the quart mason jars because storing it is so convenient and the salads actually last longer. Start layering with the dressing to keep the lettuce nice and crisp and out of the dressing until you’re ready. Top it last with crunchy toppings like crunchy noodles or nuts for a delicious kick of crunch! Give this a try! You’ll be so glad you did!
