Strawberry and Goat Cheese Mason Jar SaladStrawberry and Goat Cheese Salad

Jules Mirabella, the blogger behind Food and Other Stuff, literally has a book about mason jar salads, so you’re in good hands. This layered lunch or light dinner is packed with strawberries, spinach, walnuts, and goat cheese.

Worried about a soggy salad? “Layering the greens and strawberries helps keep them fresh, and using parchment paper to hold the dressing means that the salad won’t get soggy,” says Mirabella.

This protein-packed jar is filled with frozen berries (there’s a trick coming!), Greek yogurt, oats, chia seeds, and a little milk. Iowa Girl Eats blogger Kristin Porter, prepares it the night before for an easy on-the-go breakfast (and more time to stare at the pretty container?)

“These parfaits are thick and hearty, so the layers stay well defined. As the frozen berries soften slightly in the fridge, it creates a yummy, naturally-sweet syrup that swirls through the parfait,” says Porter.

Rooibos infused bircher muesli w berry delightRooibos-Infused Bircher Muesli

Chia seeds, hemp hearts, quinoa flakes, oats, and cherries make this one a superfood breakfast of champions—and it’s infused with tea. “Infusing your milk of choice with rooibos tea will add that extra juicy sweetness otherwise gained by using tons of sweetener,” says Elenore Bendel Zahn on her blog, Earth Sprout. Great tip, right? The red currants hanging over the side don’t hurt its swoon-worthy status, either.

We love how this salad mix starts with a grain on the bottom, so it’s a heartier take-to-work lunch—and it prevents the dressing from soaking through. Here’s the 411 from Emma Christensen of The Kitchn, who suggests you start with the dressing on the bottom of the jar, then the heaviest and most non-absorbent ingredients, and work your way up the jar…until you end up with the salad greens on top.
