Salad In A Jar: Hello Berry + Hearty Couscous + Merry Mediterra



I decided to make three different salads at one time (and made a couscous salad with any leftovers) but I would recommend tripling the recipe of one salad to make three jars of the same salad. It’s quite a bit of work to make the three different ones but totally worth it if you are up for it! I wrote that they can be refrigerated for 3-4 days just because that’s the amount of days that I left them in the fridge to try them, but my mom does five at a time (so the last one has been there for 5 days) and says they are fine!

I made images of the ingredients in order so you don’t even need to measure anything if you don’t want to, you can just throw all of the ingredients in the jar however you like. The recipe is below in case that’s more your style. Be sure to check out the “chickpea nibbles” and “cinnamon sweet potato bites.”

Salad in a Jar: Merry Mediterra

Course Salad

Prep Time 20 minutes

Cook Time 25 minutes

Total Time 45 minutes

Servings 1 small Bell jar

Author Rebelle Kitchen

Ingredients

  1. 1 tsp balsamic vinegar

  2. 1 ½ TBSP olive oil

  3. 1 tsp Just Thousand vegan dressing

  4. 2 small campari tomates diced

  5. 4.5oz baked tofu (½ block or 99g)

  6. ¼ cup olives sliced

  7. ¼ cup cucumber diced

  8. ¼ cup chickpea nibbles spiced

  9. 1 TBSP hemp seeds hemp hearts

  10. handful spring mix/lettuce/spinach

  11. pinch microgreens

Instructions

For the chickpea nibbles

Preheat the oven to 425℉. Drain, rinse and pat dry the chickpeas before putting them on an oven pan. Drizzle with olive oil and spices of your choice. I use Italian, garam masala (just a little because my baby was going to eat them too) garlic salt, all spice and everyday seasoning. I may have gone overboard but they were very tasty.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until brown and crispy on the outside. Set aside and add ¼ cup of the chickpea nibbles to the salad jar after the cucumber.

For the salad

Add the ingredients into the jar in the order they are written (wet ingredients at the bottom). Start with the olive oil and end with the microgreens on the top.

Can be refrigerated for 3-4 days.

Who doesn’t love something they can make ahead of time and just take out of the fridge, pop into a bowl and enjoy!? I can’t decided which one I liked better, they were all tasty!

Let me know which one is your favorite! @rebellekitchen
