Description

Life gets busy, but that doesn’t mean that daily salads are out of your grasp – prep a salad in a jar in advance, and you’ll eat well all week long!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 23 tablespoons creamy dressing (I like the roasted garlic with this)
  • 1 can tuna, drained
  • 1/4 cup halved grapes
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup almonds, slivered or whole
  • 2 cups salad greens (I used a baby kale and baby spinach mix)

Instructions

  1. Place the dressing in the bottom of the jar.
  2. Add the tuna.
  3. Top the tuna with the grapes, bell peppers, carrots, and almonds.
  4. Fill up your jar with the salad greens.
  5. Screw on the two piece lid (flat and band) and store in the fridge for up to a 3 days.

Notes

  • If you don’t have grapes, some chopped apples would work well too. I liked the whole crunchy almonds in this (though they do soften a bit with everything else), but sliced almonds would work too.
