Mandarin Ramen Noodle Salad Jars

I can’t decide what I enjoy more – sharing all of these recipes weekly with you live on the Facebook page, OR, having my lunches prepped for the entire week.

It’s honestly a tie! If you haven’t seen the past recipes, make sure you check them out here and here.

I just love how easy these salad jars are to construct. The best part is they stay fresh all week long! Taking 20 minutes on Sunday to make these seriously makes my life so much easier.

As always – the order that you layer your ingredients is super important in keeping your salads crisp. No one likes a soggy salad. No one.

See how easy it is to make these in the video below!
