Salad in a Jar

Healthy and delicious Salad in a Jar for springtime meals.

Salads in a Jar are both beautiful and delicious.  Spring is the perfect time to make these yummy creations.  I begin craving these salads just as the days get warmer and the pastures show the first hint of green grass on the ranch.  

Ready to go Salads in Jars…

  • Keep you on track with healthy eating goals
  • Pack a nutritious punch
  • Have tremendous color, texture and taste
  • Give your day a little bit of summertime freshness
  • Are easy to prepare
  • Are economical
  • Are easily portable

  • Have limitless possibilities!

I usually make three at a time if only preparing for myself.  I find they stay fresh for at least 3 days.  The 24oz. tall, wide-mouthed Ball jars work perfectly—you can get them here.  The jar can be transported “as is;” but I just found these silicone jackets to protect the glass.   Just look at the beautiful color of the fruit and vegetables!  Yum!

Begin with the jars

Here are a few guidelines for success…

I really like this brand of dressing…the Blush Wine (with the strawberry image) is especially good with fruit and grilled chicken.  Get it here.  

This Salad in a Jar was yesterday’s lunch…Heavenly!

3 T. Blush Wine Vinaigrette, 2 oz. leftover grilled chicken, 6 blackberries, 3 sliced strawberries, slaw mix, packed spinach and lettuce (it doesn’t look like a lot of green because it is packed in but, trust me, there is a lot), Chia seeds, sunflower seeds.  It was very delicious, fresh and filling.

Let me know what you add to your Salad in a Jar!  I can’t wait to hear about your fresh and delicious creations!

Also, I didn’t add any cheese to these jars.  But you could add feta, cheddar, or even chunks of a lowfat cheese stick to the protein portion.  

Spurring Deliciousness!

Have a great day, Nikki
