Real Food with Steph: Mason Jar Lunch

I love picnics. In the summer, I’ll take any opportunity to eat outside. One of my favorite ways to transport my lunch is in a mason jar. Not only does it look pretty, it also allows me to stack in different layers of salad goodies that transport well. There are dozens of ways to make this, but the secret is to start with the dressing at the bottom and work your way up.
