4 Salad-In-A-Jar Recipes

In a small bowl whisk the lemon and vinegar together. Slowly whisk in the oil then the garlic, parsley and oregano plus Divide the dressing among 3 quart-sized mason jars, spooning it into the bottom. Build the salads in layers, dividing evenly amongst the three jars. Begin by making the Greek salad dressing by placing all of the ingredients into a mason jar, food processor, or blender. Next, shake, process, or blend until the mixture is combined.

Then chill in the refrigerator until ready to use. To make the salad first place 2 Tablespoons of the salad dressing at the bottom of each Mason jar. Divide salad ingredients among the three mason jars in the order listed to optimize freshness. To each jar, add 1/2 cup whole cherry tomatoes, 2 tablespoons diced red onion, 1/3 cup cucumber slices, 1/3 cup chopped bell pepper, 3 ounces chicken, 1 1/2 cups chopped romaine, 1 ounce feta cheese, 3 black olives and 1 pepperoncini. Salads like this delicious Italian-Style Chopped Salad, with lettuce, chopped tomatoes, beans, cheese, and deli meat, would fit perfectly in a few pint-sized Mason jars for a few days — as long as the Italian dressing is kept separate in another container.

While any type of salad certainly works here, classic Greek salad — loaded with tomatoes, cucumbers, salty kalamata olives, and creamy feta — is particularly suited for getting packed in a jar. To each jar, add in about 2 tablespoons feta cheese, 1/4 cup chickpeas, 2 tablespoons roasted peppers, cucumbers and olives, a handful of fresh sliced tomatoes, some pickled red onions and fresh herbs. Top that with 2 to 3 tablespoons of cooked orzo (or more if you’d like!).

Cover the jar and stick it in the fridge. Add Greek dressing ingredients to a measuring cup and whisk well to combine. Divide dressing among large mason jars. Add salad ingredients into each jar: cherry tomatoes, diced onions, cucumbers, bell peppers, Kalamata olives and feta cheese.

Put the lid on and refrigerate for up to 5 days. Each mason jar salad is filled with cucumber, tomato, kalamata olives, feta, chicken and a light greek vinaigrette for the ultimate bite! Looking for more Greek chicken recipes? Try my Greek Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Tzatziki Sauce or my Greek.

Step 1 Divide Greek dressing evenly among the 5 jars, forming the first layer. Divide tomato halves evenly among the jars, forming the next layer. Layer ingredients in large mason jars in the following order: dressing, cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, feta, quinoa, chicken, lettuce.

To serve, pour the salad into a bowl or shake well and eat directly from the jar. Adjust amounts to taste and according to how many salads you are preparing.

For our Greek salad, we aimed a little higher: We wanted a salad with crisp ingredients and bold flavors, highlighted by briny kalamata olives and tangy feta, all blended together with a brighttasting dressing infused with fresh herbs.

  • The jars look beautiful. However I would like ideas to have a different salad everyday. I get bored eating thx same thing 5 days a week.

  • Great salads. However the potato and soybeans are not good for people who have inflammation issues. I would omit them and use something different that does not cause people to get sick. Please look at the nutrition information on what you put in your salads before saying they are healthy.

  • Question! Don’t the things in the bottom of the jar get all soggy? How can they last four days marinating in dressing? Just wondering…

  • Do you have the Nutritional information for your meals anywhere listed? I’m very excited to begin making these mason jar meals. They look so Nutritiuos and Yummy to the Tummy Meals. I’m so excited about your beautiful new cookbook. God Bless You so very much for all your creative compassionate culinary delights. What a Beautiful New Daughter. Love your channel so very much, Tamson from Kentucky ��

  • Omg I’m so excited to try this out with warmer weather coming I don’t want to be I jus do have tha itch for it……so if I make all at once I’ll b off the hook for thinkg abt lunches at least…ty pls do more of these viv

  • Looks delicious! I am hungry now!! Thank you for sharing the recipe!:) I always look in Pinterest, it is my 1st time watching a video about the jar salad! Yum!!

  • Greek salad is NOT made with romaine. It is made with head lettuce. Don’t know why people have changed it. Doesn’t taste the same. Great video though!

  • This is NOT healthy if you’re using Honey in your dressing, Eggs, Ham, Cooked Bacon, Tuna. Animals are NOT food.

    When you buy eggs know that thousands of male chicks are abused and ground alive. Eggs are a Chickens Period!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssOEJpBQErc

    Goat Cheese?
    Thousands of baby male goats are slaughtered when they are about a week old. Female goats are taken from their mothers and kept in pens so that YOU can eat your Goat Cheese. Again…. ANIMALS are not our FOOD.

    This can all be made 100% Vegan.

  • She’s secretly a lettuce hater..!!
