I love salads. I love salad variety. I love bringing salads to work. I love eating salads at work. So I love the concept behind this book.

Seriously though, it's not long, it's more like a sample, but I have never heard of this layering technique and it's just awesome. I love the recipes too, as they're so varied and use common enough ingredients but the flavor would be great. Each layer recipe includes the ingredients for the dressing that accompanies it. Yum. As another reviewer mentioned, not

Healthy, practical, environmentally friendly (the mason jars can be cleaned in the dishwasher) ... what's not to like?

I really appreciated the idea of bypassing restaurants, which obviously have to treat their salads somehow to hinder that the salad wilts or goes bad. I also liked the author's layering concept, as well as the photos/graphics how the individual layers are prepared.

However, I am having issues with the fact that according to the author meat (e.g. pepperoni, cooked ham, chicken etc

There are a few things that drew me to this book, one being that it was a free download and two, the book over caught my eye. Well I am pretty glad I downloaded this book. It is a short booklet with some good perpetration procedures regarding salads. I like the idea of storing the salads in a jar and the neat trick of using a paper tow at top to help gather the excess moisture. Also I actually learned something - the veggies you buy at fast food places are not fresh. They are sprayed with a ...more

Not one of my favorites - I expected much more. Out of the seven recipes three are variations of those already introduced.
The genaral idea is very interesting (the only reason this book got more than one 1*) but it's not very well edited (some typos & the spacing between sentences is varying but appears to be mostly more than one space - not really grave but distracting for me) and one or two parts announced in the introduction didn't appear at all.

I have been trying to adapt to a healthier lifestyle, and as a result I have stumbled across several different recipes for Mason jar salads. This book was a great find because it shows pictures of how the salads should properly be layered, which makes a huge difference (for instance, the dressing should always go on the bottom so the other ingredients don't get all soggy). I like how it's on my Kindle so I can just pull it up whenever I'm at the grocery store.

Great lunch box ideas

What a neat way to have salads at lunch at work or school without paying more than they're worth. If you're worried about transporting glass bottles you can always put these in plastic ones or use those plastic zipper bags (the dressing would be mixed in on the way to work or school) and include a paper plate or bowl.

Interesting and helpful but short

Would love to have about 20-25 more recipes to try but a fun way to eat more greens for working people.

Dressing

This is a good cook book for some new dressing ideas. Easy to veganize all the salads by either omitting or substituting items.

Helpful

Very helpful to keep salad fresh, good idea.
But what is with a towel over the glass? To keep it fresh for a couple of day's, I don't want to cut towels to pieces to put them in the glass, sure I understand that it will remove the moisture, but what's with the fabric if it is coming lose.

AWESOME IDEA! We've been making these for about a month now for my husband and daughter! They LOVE them! We bought 24 oz Styrofoam cups and lids because glass jars and high school don't mix! They fit in my daughters backpack water bottle holder just perfectly and she is eating a healthy delicious lunch that she helps prepare! GREAT tastes, easy ingredients and preparation, awesome idea!

The book cover is appealing for people/salad lovers looking to prepare, eat or store fresh veggies in a different way.
I love a good salad. I could have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I like the combination of flavors from the fresh veggies, so delicious.. I like that the salads in this book are kept in Mason jars for added freshness and convenience, just make them, and shake them (dressing is at the bottom) when you are ready to eat them. Smart, easy, affordable, I love it.... I'm a

As a Southern girl who loves salads, whenever I saw the cover of this cookbook I was sold. Mason jars and delicious looking salads? Count me in!

The step-by-step guide to building your mason jar salad is great! The helpful hints make all of the difference, and I cannot wait to put them to use. There is a lot of variety offered in this cookbook. And you can easily substitute these recipes to better fit your tastes. I'll be trying the Korean Sesame Salad very soon! I'm strange and prefer raw

Excellent homemade salad dressing recipes

The idea of layered salads in a jar is such a handy and clever idea for make ahead lunches. These recipes each have a different theme-such as Italian or Asian-and give you written instructions as well as visual instructions. The salad dressings are made with simple ingredients but all sound delicious. This book is worth it for the salad dressing recipes alone, but then you get the bonus of the different layered salad recipes. This is definitely a book

For those who want to try the Mason jar salad thing (which I love, btw), this is a great little guide book for Kindle that cost next to nothing, and includes several healthy combinations for those days when you just can't think straight as to what to put in that jar. The big plus are the fresh salad dressing recipes--per portion, not enough to feed an army--that are an alternative to the stuff in a bottle if you are seeking to eat clean. Yes, they do last five days. Honest. No wilt. Great taste.

Instructions on how best to create your own fresh salads in a mason jar that will last for days. After the basic instructions the reader is provided with 7 salads, including homemade dressings which, I consider, to be the best thing next to the instructions.

This is one incredibly short “book” and if I hadn’t gotten it for free, I’m pretty sure I would have felt that I’d paid too much for it. But for free, yep, this is definitely worth getting your hands on, if nothing else the order of

Very short but I think that is good. You read the first section and it basically tells you everything you need to know in a short space. Then the rest of the pages are the author's favorite recipes (maybe combinations would be more accurate). Each one also tells how to mix up a home-made dressing as well. Good to keep in mind and reference in the future. I will be experimenting with this idea right away.

Not bad, actually quite helpful

I chose this because of the ratings and reviews I saw; as well as, I want to use cheap but healthy alternatives. I'm a busy full time college student so learning the basics of how to prepare easy meals that are good for you and inexpensive was a help. I never knew how to prevent the sogginess or that fast food chains spray the food with chemicals to preserve it.....

This is a few years to late. I have retired.

Lunch away from home and it is better than a salad bar with out preserving chemicals. It also keeps the lettuce and vegetables from becoming limp and brown. I think I will use this when I have friends over for lunch.

YAY!Salad in a fun new way!

So I have been getting bored with my salad. But I have been short on time lately. I needed something to be efficient but not end up tossing a whole bag of salad away. With this mason jar method, I can now have no excuse for more veggies. Thank you for writing this book.
