Hey y’all! Today’s recipe post is part 1 of a healthy lunch box meal prep series I’m doing with Monbento where I’m sharing 5 Make-Ahead Healthy Lunch Box Ideas using their popular Bento Boxes, MB Jars, and MB Water Bottle. In this post, I’m sharing my delicious loaded burger bowl salad in a jar, and all I can say is – IT IS AMAZINGLY GOOD!
All of their containers are BPA Free, airtight, and dishwasher safe. If you’re looking for super functional lunch boxes, their containers are amazing! Use code KAYLACHANDLER10 for 10% Off the entire website!
This healthy salad recipe is 100% gluten free, paleo, grain free, and can be made low carb & Keto friendly by subsituting the Thousand Island Dressing with my homemade Dairy Free Ranch Dressing.
How to Prepare this Loaded Burger Bowl Salad In A Jar
Any salad can be prepped salad-in-a-jar style by simply layering the ingredients. The idea is to add the salad dressing to the bottom of the jar followed by the protein. Then, simply layer the ingredients with the highest water content on the bottom with the lettuce being the last ingredient added to avoid it getting soggy.
By prepping your salads in a jar, you can usually prep them up to 3-4 days in advance. So, it’s an easy way to meal prep salads as a healthy lunch option throughout the week that you just grab-and-go!
I love the MB Jar for this because it has the airtight seal on the lid so it tends to stay fresher longer, but you can also use a regular mason jar.
