This Mediterranean Salad In A Jar is a healthy and delicious portable meal, packed with your favorite Greek Salad ingredients – just shake and serve.
Ever since our Salad In A Jar Party , I’ve been thinking about how convenient they are for lunch or dinner. It’s easy to make a batch once you have all the chopped vegetables. You can use any vegetables you have on hand, or you can create themes for different variations of salads.
Here, I’ve made a Mediterranean Salad In A Jar – it’s like a Greek Salad, with the addition of quinoa. Greek Salad is one of my favorite salads. I used to take out Greek Salads for lunch when I worked, but it is so easy to make at home. The most important thing is to use fresh, crunchy vegetables – no limp, old veggies please.
The Antioxidant Salad Dressing is perfect for this salad – it’s got lemon juice and oregano in it, which go along with the Mediterranean theme, plus it has good-for-you ground flaxseeds and healthy oils in it.
I made this Mediterranean Salad In A Jar for this month’s Recipe Redux theme Limpin’ Along for Lunch theme. Our challenge was this: “Ever get in a lunch rut? Need new ideas for packing your kids’ or your own lunch? Are packable noontime options dwindling? Surely you’ve met the ‘What shall I pack for lunch?” question head-on with creative ideas. Please share your healthy lunch recipe – so we can swap it into our own rotation.
I think this salad in a jar and others are the perfect solution when you’re in a lunch rut – you can add chickpeas, black beans, nuts, use different greens (spinach, kale, arugula), and include proteins such as salmon or chicken if you like.
