Recipe: Mason Jar Tex Mex Salad

recipe: Salads


Why does everything look cuter in a mason jar?  I’m not sure, but all I know is this lunch is too stinkin’ adorable!  Seriously, this is the smartest (and cutest) way to pack a salad for lunch.  The dressing stays at the bottom to preserve freshness, and when you are ready to grub, simply shake the jar up and toss everything together.  Practical, and pretty!

Or, try your own spin on a Mason Jar Salad with these simple principles:



  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup corn
  • 4 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 cup tomatoes
  • 2 avocados
