Layer the salad in the following order:
If including the salad dressing in your mason jar, add it first to the bottom of the jar.
Next, layer harder veggies like carrots, pickles, olives, and peppers. These will resist getting soggy from the salad dressing.
Add lighter veggies like tomatoes and lettuce.
Top it off with meats, cheeses, or nuts (if desired).
