Mason jar salads seem to be popping up left and right. My first thought is always that the dressing would make the rest of the ingredients soggy. Enter the idea for my mason jar salad container. This is an all in one, portable, easy to make container that will serve up as many salads as you desire — all while keeping your dressing separate.
Great right? Lets make one! You will need a Quart Wide Mouth Mason Jar plus a Wide Mouth Squat Mason Jar. The secret to this project is E6000 Craft Adhesive. I have been using it for years to bound various surfaces around my home. It is a must for projects like these.
Add the E6000 to just the band of the squat mason jar as shown below. Then add the band to the bottom of the large quart jar. Allow the adhesive to set up for at least 24 hours.
After your adhesive is set up you can assemble your mason jar salad container. I told you it was an easy project!
Just unscrew the lids to add in your favorite salad ingredients. Your dressing does not have to touch the salad until lunch time with this fun container.
This is the perfect way to take your lunch to work, school, or on a picnic. Make one of these for yourself plus anyone else in the family who would love a good salad. When you are ready to eat, just remove the lid from the top and the squat jar from the bottom. Add the dressing and mix the salad ingredients however you like them. You are ready for an amazing lunch….all from a mason jar. My mason jar salad container is sure to be a hit around your home. NOTE: I would recommend hand washing your mason jar salad container as I am unsure of how the dishwasher will effect the bond.
