Quinoa and Veggie Jar Salad


  • Serves: Makes 3-4, depending on jar size

  • Difficulty: Easy

For a fresh take on the standard work or school lunch, try a jar salad! Portable and stuffed with freshness, they’re easy to grab and go! We opted to re-use a Farm Boy pasta sauce jar for our salad, but any wide-mouthed jar will work (our mayonnaise containers work great, too!).

Pro tip: Always put the dressing in first, followed by stronger ingredients or proteins. Fragile items, like leafy greens, should go on top to maintain crispness. Once you’re ready to eat, just flip the jar over, let the dressing drip down, and enjoy!

Courses: Salads

Directions

  1. Divide dressing amongst 4 x 500ml or 3 x 750ml mason type jars.
  2. Start layering ingredients, starting with chickpeas and tomatoes, then bell peppers, cucumber, quinoa, and feta cheese.
  3. Top with pumpkin seeds and arugula.
  4. Close jars and refrigerate upright.
  5. When ready to eat, turn jars upside down to let dressing drip throughout the ingredients.
