Remember to put the wet ingredients at the bottom first, such as the sauce or dressing, then put the dry ingredients on top, like crispy noodles or croutons! This way you will be able to avoid the dry ingredients from becoming soggy before you even get the chance to dig in.

Without further ado, dig in to these 20 yummy and healthy mason jar recipes!
