Summery Salad in a Jar

Summery Salad in a Jar | the organic place

How good is walking to the fridge on a hot sunny day to find a salad fully made and ready to go? No faffing and chopping when your’e starving, and no limp lettuce from being pre-prepared too early. Just a crisp, delicious bowl of yum

Salads in jars are going to deliver that directly to you. Starting with layering your heavier items at the bottom (with optional dressing, or you can add it later) with the lighter leaves on top and all fresh as can be in an airtight jar.

The best part is you can make them out of anything you like – almost every single salad is possible in a jar. Make a bunch at the start of the week for lunches, or pack them away on a sunshiny picnic. You won’t know how to get through summer without them!

This salad makes a Thai-inspired dressing, but feel free to add your own.

Instructions
  1. In a large, clean jar with an airtight lid, layer the salad ingredients with the lettuce on top. If you are keeping the dressing in the jar, pour the dressing over the cabbage at the bottom.
  2. Add your dressing if necessary, and shake the jar to distribute.
  3. Turn out onto a plate and add a couple of toasted chopped peanuts for crunch!
Dressing
  1. In a small bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients until emulsified. Check for seasoning - you want it to be balanced.
Recipe Notes
  • Keep crunchy topping elements in a separate container - nuts, seeds, croutons, etc
  • Always make sure the dressing is at the bottom, mixed with the heartier items that won't get too soggy - carrot, cabbage, your protein, etc.
