I Made A Salad. Am I Pinteresting Yet?


The end is near, my friends. It finally happened. I've yielded a legit Pinterest result. Yes, seriously! I was a woman on a mission over this past weekend. I forced my husband to scour the tiny aisles of The Dollar Store with me because damn it, I was going to buy some Mason jars.

Mason jars were my safe bet. Have you seen how many things you can do with a mason jar? I knew I could make SOMETHING fly with these. After spending an hour deciding if I should bedazzle them, make light fixtures using them, or spray paint them, I made a rum and Coke in one of them and continued scrolling through Pinterest. That's when I found something I knew even I couldn't fail at.


Shoutout to this lovely Pinterest Princess for the idea that gave me my first Pinterest victory.


Make Ahead Mason Jar Salads-
That's right, y'all. Salad. AF. Watch out, Paula Deen. 


I also made a fruit salad using caramel as my "dressing." I topped it with cut up apples, grapes, strawberries, & bananas. But I ate it right away, so no Pinteresting photos. I'll hook that up for you next week when I salad prep for the week. This is a great way to prepare healthy salads for everyone in your family. They hold up all week as long as you layer them correctly. (Dressing has to be on bottom.) No more excuses. It's just as easy to open a lid as it is to open a Little Debbie wrapper. Sigh. Sometimes winning is really losing.

    1. I actually love salads too but to make one every day? Girl that lettuce would be dead by the time I made my first salad. Doing it this way is where it's at!

  3. At first I was going to say your title was my favorite line, but I think this one wins: "It's just as easy to open a lid as it is to open a Little Debbie wrapper. Sigh. Sometimes winning is really losing." :) I've seen these salads but never tried one. Given my stash of mason jars (that all came from others 'cuz I'm not the jelly making or canning diva!), I have no excuse not to try. That and I really hate making salads, so I'd probably eat them more if I only had to make them once a week!

    1. LOL, it's the truth though. Sigh. Being healthy is so much work. You have to do this though. Best use for my mason jars since drinking whiskey out of them! (Which I"m going to keep doing anyway, because life.)
