  • Lacey this is such a wonderful idea! I love meal preps, and salads are always challenging to make ahead. I am going to now buy some extra long forks for on-the-go eating 😉

  • heey, I’ve never left any comments in youtube, but i have to say you’re so amazing!!! i’m looking for ides for my new restaurant and i’ve got so much inspiration from you! keep it up:)

  • These look delicious. Could I make the honey mustard vegan by using agave or maple syrup. I know that it would technically no longer be “honey mustard,” but do you think the flavor would still be similar?

  • Sorry I’m a bit confused why is important to use a mason jar or can I use any glass or plastic jar. And then when we use surely the bottom of the jar is going to bring the food to the top. Or perhaps you to use it all in one go. Thanking you in advance.

  • I love that you explained how to eat the salads at the end! That was really handy…I’ve been wondering for a long time what the proper options are:) Lovely video as always!!!

  • Hi Lacey, what a fabulous idea. I always get lazy whenever I planning to cut fruits, vegetable and chicken for making salad on daily basis but now I have your amazing idea. I will surely make it but my only concern is about Jars, I am leaving in Dubai so do you have any idea from where I will get them.
    thanks

  • what I love about western kitchen is that too simple to follow, not like the arabic one which too complicated. this is very helpful. Thanks

  • Can you store the salad from the plastic container in a Mason jar without dressings for example spring mix and if so how long can you store it in the Mason jar

  • I absolutely love the meal planning videos that you’ve been making!! I have a rambunctious toddler so for me it, cuts down time and energy. There’s no fuss or muss, I just Grab & Go. I love it!keep up the good work, your little one is so cute!!

  • If you want to use a covered bowl…Line the bottom of your salad bowl with paper towels. The paper towels absorb the moisture. Your salad will stay fresh & crisp for 5 days.

  • Hi, do you just wash or wash and dry really good all your veggies and fruit? is drying of the veggies after you wash them important so they don’t go bad sooner?

  • Awwww your baeby��������she is just a sweet little pearl!Congrats Matcha Mama! Sooo beautiful to see you are a mother now and just love how beautiful you and your daughter are! ��������������������������������������

  • Hi took your idea and made a salad in a mason jar with out salad dressing in bottom. I had so many people at work tell me what a great idea!! I have 1 question…if the salad is in the fridge in a mason jar does it need to be vacuum sealed? will it last 5 days without wilting? The honey mustard dressing looks delicious.. I will try it.

  • No, best salads are fresh salads. How hard can it be to chop clean lettuce and vegetables also make a dressing?You can do that while the meat is frying in the pan.15 min job?

  • Will the chicken still stay fresh after 5 days in just the fridge? Normally I would freeze chicken if i have to use it after more than 3 days.

  • I’d try the OPA or Forager. I need to eat a lot of salad, but being 36 weeks pregnant I can’t eat a lot, and I have no interest in meats, and I LOVE chick peas!

  • Brilliance! I love it 4 years later. I can shake and pour when serving to ensure everything is coated with dressing. This is perfection without over consumption of dressing, which I always do. Thank you Lacey

  • Baby is a cutie pie and has gotten so big. Love the salad and meal prep ideas; please continue them. Any snacks ideas for a pregnant woman with gestational diabetes? I have a client in need of some..

  • This is so great! This will help me eat the salad greens I buy that usually are wilted by the time I want to eat them (bcuz they are in the crisper and I forget them). Can’t wait to try! ������������

  • Nice video and salad prep ideas!  Wanted to see you show how it looks when poured it into a bowl after you shook it all up in the jar.

  • Thank you for explaining the science behind the mason jar salad. Yours will be an inspiration. Please make more meal prep recipes.

  • I roast all my veggies and they last up to 4 days in good shape. The chicken can also last 4 days. Bacon usually will only last 3 days. Hope this helps someone:)

  • Nice video but PLEASE be mindful of the water you are wasting! Close it while you take another vegetable and specially do not let the water running.

    My heart always breaks while watching people with no respect whatsoever to water.
    In that shoot you wasted at least 2 Lt of water.
    So so sad, please be mindful of that. Everything need water and everyone should take good care of it.

  • Loved this vid! You mentioned chipotle; I too love them but discovered I can make a very similar burrito bowl type recipe with some of my favorites from Trader Joe’s! I often go for a fajita type salad which I’m sure you can comply right inside one of your mason jars! ��

  • What a good idea to prepare a salad in advance in mason jars,I would think it also stays more fresh in glass than Tupperware,also love you in dark hair,love the joy on the wall,have a blessed week hun..

  • For me, having a salad handy in the refrigerator that’s colorful & fresh is important. Usually don’t like salads I make at home because of time & they can be boring. You made a nice variety and the dressings sound yummy too!

  • Shot live, unedited, step-by-step recipe! Apologies on the sound quality…shot it on an iPhone with the Emoze App. Did you like seeing the action live, or do you prefer our higher more polished videos?

  • I’m a new subscriber I just saw your video and this is fantastic! I I like that you’re directed to the point. You’re music isn’t annoying. Both of you work together well. Keep on doing videos just like this. I don’t like watching any videos over 10 minutes. Anyway take care, Carrie
