Individual Mason Jar Antipasto Kale Salad with Basil Vinaigrette
Mason jar salads are the newest crave. They are perfect for any busy person looking to eat healthier, make it ahead and take it to go!
Getting the biggest bang for your buck in the kitchen means making it once and enjoying it multiple times during the week.
Does summer mean less packing of lunch in a mason jar?
No way! This is the perfect opportunity to showcase and easily serve to guests a beautiful antipasto salad for a summer BBQ, like the 4th of July perhaps!!
Earthbound Organic Kale Italia is an Italian inspired blend of greens like tender baby kale, peppery arugula and tangy radicchio!
It’s the best blend for an antipasto salad made individually so it’s easy to serve to guests for a summer outdoor picnic, barbecue or pool party!
Mason jar salads is all about layering properly. The tender Earthbound Kale Italia must be last so it will stay perfect and not soggy. Once prepared it can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days!
When ready to serve just bring some forks and the covers of the jars for mixing.
Find a cute tray to bring it outside and your done! Appetizer served! I call that easy entertaining!
Add some Parmesan crisps as an edible garnish to each and share with your friends!
You can provide some plates or bowls but it’s really not needed with the mason jars. I just wanted you to see how good all of it looked on a plate once mixed.
Everyone can simply cover the jar, shake vigorously to incorporate the dressing at the bottom then eat right from the jar with a fork!
