4 Salad-In-A-Jar Recipes

Today on Domestic Geek I'm gonna show you my four favorite salad in a jar recipes. Now, my last few recipes may have been just a little decadent so I'm excited to share some more healthy options with you. These salad in a jars could not be easier to put together. You could leave them in the fridge for three or four days so they'll basically last you from Monday to

Thursday. And then of course, Friday is fast food Friday anyways, so you don't really need to bring your lunch. I absolutely love this chopped salad in a jar because it eats like a real meal. Now, when people think salad they default to lettuce and I am a firm believer that lettuce is nothing but fillers so avoid it whenever you can and use nice crispy fresh vegetables. Today I'm going to be using my

spicy honey mustard dressing. This is so tasty and has such an incredibly kick. And sort of vinaigrette would also work but I like a homemade dressing. The spicy honey mustard recipe is in the description below and also available on the domestic geek dot com so be sure to check it out. Now, for this recipe I'm going to start with my grape tomatoes. On top of that I have steamed off some tasty green

beans, some beautiful steamed red potatoes and some hard boiled eggs. This is a protein power lunch. Now, you could also a little bit of ham or some cooked bacon or even a can of tuna to this if you wanted even more protein. but I prefer keeping is just veg. It's great for meatless Mondays. Now, I'm just gonna shake this down. To make myself a little more space for my awesome chick peas. How pretty is

that? This gorgeous Asian-inspired salad in a jar uses such amazing ingredients like edamame and carrot, mango, red cabbage for lots of color, some steamed broccoli and then some green onion to add a little bit of flavor. Now, we're going to start with my favorite citrus avocado dressing. It's got like a ginger-y kick to it that really works with all of these sort of Asian ingredients. So, we're gonna start by adding our red cabbage. You

really want you heartier vegetables on the bottom where the dressing is 'cause you don't want everything getting really soggy. I love steamed broccoli in everything. I love it as a replacement for lettuce in salads. It's got more body, it's got more texture. To that we're going to add some carrots and then some beautiful mango. I buy my edamame beans frozen and then just steam them really quickly. They add such good bite to

the salad. Our final step would be just to top it with a little bit of green onion. Okay, just bringing in some of those nice Asian flavor. Put on the lid, and look at that. That is lunch, baby. I absolutely love this fresh and fruity salad in a jar because it is sweet and colorful and such a pleasure to eat. The base of it is going to be my blackberry balsamic vinaigrette. Now, the recipe

is listed in the description below or on the domestic geek dot com. You could use balsamic vinaigrette for this. Strawberries and balsamic vinegar are an excellent combination. And to that we're going to start layering our flavors. I have some candied pecans that are going in first because they can sort of withstand the dressing. On top of that, I'm going to add some gorgeous fresh cut strawberries, some blueberries, a little bit of red

onion, layer in some goat cheese which is my very favorite and then with whatever room I have left in goes the lettuce. Let's be serious, the fruit is the star of the show in this salad. So, I'm not afraid. I'm not gonna overdo is on the lettuce. Close the lid, put this guy in the fridge and it'll be good for a couple days. So, for this gorgeous Greek inspired salad in a jar we're going

to start with some Greek dressing. Now, you could totally use the store-bought stuff that will work but I actually whipped up a little bit of my own creamy Greek dressing in a mason jar. The recipe is in the description below and also on the domestic geek dot com if you want to make it yourself or like I said, any store-bought Greek dressing will do. So, we're gonna start with our dressing on

the bottom. Now, the reason we do this is because we don't want our ingredients getting soggy. To that, we're going to add some beautiful kalamata olives. Some people don't love olives. If you don't love olives, don't add them. Then some chopped red onion, some beautiful Greek feta, grape tomatoes, cucumber, and then we're gonna top it all off with some yellow bell pepper. There it is, your salad in a jar. This is the perfect lunch. When you're

ready to eat it you just shake it all up. All of these amazing recipes are available in the description below or of course on the domestic geek dot com. Be sure to subscribe to my channel for more great recipes just like these guys and happy lunching.
