Rainbow Salad in a Mason Jar

982 0

I so agree to this one by Fran Lebowitz, “A salad is not a meal. Its a style.” I was never someone who loved eating healthy food but always liked to make the appearance of the food I eat, interesting.. when I saw the concept of Salads in a Jar, for the first time, I tried it & got hooked onto it.. Ever since I have tried so many permutations & combinations & trust me when I say this but I look forward to my daily dose of “salad”..

Lets understand the advantages of “Salad in a jar”..

  1. Its really handy & easy to prepare.
  2. They take up very less space in the fridge.
  3. High in nutrition & very tasty.
  4. Easy to carry in a small bag as well & they dont leak.
  5. You can make good use of the ingredients you have & totally customise it according to your needs.
  6. For vegetarians, you can make this into a full meal by adding paneer, tofu or any other protein source & for non-vegetarians, you can add chicken, eggs or any other meat of your choice.

Prep time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 10 mins

The whole idea behind the layering of the ingredients is that when the dressing goes in first at the bottom of the jar, the other contents don’t get soggy & will stay dry till you want to eat it..

Before eating just unload this jar into a bowl & the greens will form a beautiful salad bed.. You can store this jar in the fridge for 2-3 days & just shake it & eat it.
