Mason Jar Salad
What's the easiest way to transport salad to the picnic or campground?  A mason jar of course. Just layer your salad fixings then shake a few times just prior to serving
Layer 1 (bottom): Vinaigrette
Layer 2: Salad veggies (carrots, sundried tomatoes, celery, etc)
Layer 3: Lettuce
Layer 4: Cheese, nuts and fruit
Layer 5: Croutons

Mason Jar Apple Pie (serves 2)

Nothing is more Americana than momma's apple pie and nothing brings more vintage nostalgia to apple pie than cooking and serving it in a Mason jar.  Just line a half pint jar with pie crust, fill with your favorite apple pie filling (or flavor of your choosing) and bake.  Bring that jar full of deliciousness and your picnic will be a success.
