I have another delicious Mason Jar Salad recipe to share with you! These were absolutely fantastic. They included chicken along with corn and black beans, so I felt like they were really filling. The BBQ sauce and ranch combo gave this salad the perfect SWEET ‘n TANGY taste combo!

Remember that when you are making a mason jar salad, the KEY is to keep the wet ingredients far away from the lettuce. You want your lettuce to stay crisp and dry as it sits in the jar up to a few days.

We made 10 jars at once – 1 salad per day for Bob and myself. You can certainly adjust the ingredients and amounts as you prefer.

Here are the ingredients that go into ONE salad. Multiply by as many as you’d like to make!

Time saving hack – Use a rotisserie chicken for an easy shortcut that eliminates the need to cook any chicken.
