7 Recipes of Salad in a Jar

I never go anywhere without my salad. Salad in a Jar retains its crispiness and its moisture very well and there is nothing mushy or stale about it, as long as you take your dressing in a separate container. Picnics, days at the pool, hikes, playground lunches can all benefit from a healthy salad. All you need to pack then is either some quinoa, some healthy bread or some hard-boiled eggs and you can have a healthy meal on the go.

To do Salad in a Jar right, you have to layer your salad, putting the ingredients in layer by layer. Consider the visual aspect of your salad: put a green layer after the red layer and a white layer between two green layers, etc. Then, when you are ready to eat, pour the dressing over the salad, shake lightly, add soft foods like avocado or goat cheese (if you want to use them) and enjoy!

Here are some salad in jar recipes:

Lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, cooked black beans, parsley, avocado

Spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, basil, onions, goat cheese

Baby kale, onions, almond slices, grated beet, avocado, dried cranberries
