Hearty Salad in a Jar
Rating (0 Rated)
Some people leave enough room at the top so you can shake the jar, but we like to empty it into a bowl and toss. You can make salads a few days ahead, but if you’re including cheese, proteins, or soft fruits and vegetables, it’s best to add them to the top of the jar on the day you’ll eat the salad so the delicate ingredients don’t get soggy. 
serves 1


-Crunchy/hard, chopped vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, peppers, cooked beets, fennel, etc.
-Beans and/or heavy grains like rice, wheat berries, barley or firm pastas
-Proteins like meats, eggs, tofu, tuna and cheese
-Softer fruits or vegetables like berries or avocados
-Seeds, nuts and lighter grains like millet or quinoa
-Fill the rest of the jar with greens and lettuce – you can pack it in
