“This is what I pack for lunch when I’m going to be out for the day.”

Here is what you do: (You can prepare the night before and store in the fridge)

Salad In A Jar


  • Clean Jars with lids 24oz
  • Layer 1: sweet Mustard dressing (make sure you put this on the bottom so it doesn’t make your salad soggy)
  • Layer 2: Cooked Quinoa, couscous or Barley
  • Layer 3: tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, asparagus, celery, peppers, carrots plus anything green and leafy
  • Layer 4: Avocado
  • Layer 5: Organic tempeh or chicken
  • Layer 6: Sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or sesame seeds


  1. Cut, peel, wash the veggies/fruits. Cook the grains.
  2. Prepare the dressing.
  3. Once everything is prepared, layer into the jars.

Sweet Mustard Dressing


  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 2 tsp maple syrup (or honey for non-vegans)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all together and shake!

Salad In A Jar Tips and Tricks:

  • Always aim to include protein, fat and carbohydrate to every meal you consume. A salad like this is the perfect combination for you.
  • Put the salad dressing in first. Keep the moisture of the dressing away from your lettuce and greens for best results.
  • Salad in a jar can last 3-10 days in the fridge. Three days for any salad in a jar that includes meat (eat those first) and up to 10 days for salads that have firm veggies and no meat. I like to keep things like eggs, cucumbers, and avocado out of my jar. I’ll add them when I’m ready to eat if I want them.
  • Try to make homemade dressings so you are not consuming any chemicals.
  • The size of the jar will determine the servings. I like using wide mouth jars because they are easier to fill, eat from, and clean. Use a pint jar for a lunch/single serving and use a quart jar for large dinner servings or a side salad for a family meal.

Enjoy… ????❤️????
