What’s great about mason jar meals?
We love mason jar meals in our house because they are a fantastic way to pack lunch without a fancy thermos. Something about mason jars just screams summer. Mason jars look adorable, simple, and clean, not to mention they look fantastic in a photo. You can make these mason jar recipes ahead of time and store them in the fridge. If you are prepping them for a party, this is a great way to plan ahead so you’re not rushing to prepare food the day of the event! They look fancy enough for the ‘gram, and you’ll save money by making the meals yourself rather than buying from somewhere else.
How long do meals in a jar keep in the fridge?
It really depends on the ingredients you use. If your mason jar salad or meal has meat in it, it will last 3-4 days in your refrigerator. As for vegetarian mason jar meals, they should safely keep in the fridge for 4-5 days. Make sure you tighten the lid so that your meals in a jar stay as fresh as possible. You could make a batch on Sunday and eat them throughout the weekdays. Meal prep is a fantastic time and money saver!
The best mason jar meals follow a basic guideline — keep the sauces, dressings, and heavier ingredients at the bottom, and keep the lighter, drier ingredients towards the top. This prevents more delicate ingredients like greens from getting weighed down with dressing and sauces so that everything stays as fresh as when you assembled it. When you are ready to eat, simply shake up the ingredients until well combined and you are good to go!
