It’s not too early to start on those New Year’s resolutions for eating better! If you’re like me, the #1 reason to not eat healthier is that it takes “too long” to get a healthy meal ready (especially lunches during the workweek). Good news: a week’s worth of salad jar lunches can be made in about 10 minutes!
You can use any combination of salad ingredients you like, just follow this one rule: KEEP THE DRESSING AWAY FROM THE GREENS! As long as the greens stay dry, your salads will last in the fridge for several days. When you’re ready to eat your salad, just shake up the jar to distribute the dressing and pour it out into a bowl to enjoy!
For my salads in the picture, I put dressing at the bottom, sliced mushrooms, grape tomatoes, grilled chicken, a sprinkle of cheddar cheese, and spinach leaves. Here’s my recipe for the dressing I used:
With Good Things’ Quick & Easy Balsamic Viniagrette
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp honey
Sprinkle of pepper to taste
Swirl ingredients in bottom of mason jar to combine before adding salad ingredients.
Who else has some quick work lunch ideas?
