Make yourself a batch of Greek salad mason jars with Olive Oil dressing - and get healthy lunch prepped all week long!
Jars of goodness, packed with flavour
We can't think of anything more satisfying than starting a busy week with a fridge full of nutritious, delicious mason jar salads ready to grab on your way out of the door.
When making salads in advance, the trick is to keep the dressing separate, so that it doesn't make the fresh ingredients soggy.
By adding the dressing to your mason jar first, you can layer up your veggies on top so that they stay crispy and fresh.
Then all it takes is a good shake to get everything dressed to impress and ready to enjoy.
This recipe is perfect for meal prep - so let's get organised!
Why you should switch to 100% olive oil salad dressing
We make our Greek Olive Oil Dressing with 100% olive oil - rather than a little olive oil blended with other veg and seed oils that aren't good for us.
Dressings made with vegetable and seed oils may be cheaper, but always come at a cost to our health.
You can learn all about the health benefits of olive oil and why you should avoid veg & seed oil alternatives in our articles below.
