4 Salad-In-A-Jar Recipes


Today on Domestic Geek I’m gonna show you my four
favorite salad in a jar recipes. Now, my last few recipes may have been just a little decadent so I’m excited to share some
more healthy options with you. These salad in a jars could
not be easier to put together. You could leave them in the
fridge for three or four days so they’ll basically last you from Monday to Thursday. And then of course, Friday
is fast food Friday anyways, so you don’t really need
to bring your lunch. I absolutely love this
chopped salad in a jar because it eats like a real meal. Now, when people think salad
they default to lettuce and I am a firm believer that lettuce is nothing but fillers so avoid it whenever you can and use nice crispy fresh vegetables. Today I’m going to be using my
spicy honey mustard dressing. This is so tasty and has
such an incredibly kick. And sort of vinaigrette would also work but I like a homemade dressing. The spicy honey mustard recipe is in the description below and also available on
the domestic geek dot com so be sure to check it out. Now, for this recipe I’m going to start with my grape tomatoes. On top of that I have steamed
off some tasty green beans, some beautiful steamed red potatoes and some hard boiled eggs. This is a protein power lunch. Now, you could also a little bit of ham or some cooked bacon or
even a can of tuna to this if you wanted even more protein. but I prefer keeping is just veg. It’s great for meatless Mondays. Now, I’m just gonna shake this down. To make myself a little more space for my awesome chick peas. How pretty is that? This gorgeous Asian-inspired
salad in a jar uses such amazing ingredients
like edamame and carrot, mango, red cabbage for lots of color, some steamed broccoli
and then some green onion to add a little bit of flavor. Now, we’re going to start with my favorite citrus avocado dressing. It’s got like a ginger-y kick to it that really works with all of these sort of Asian ingredients. So, we’re gonna start by
adding our red cabbage. You really want you heartier
vegetables on the bottom where the dressing is ’cause you don’t want everything getting really soggy. I love steamed broccoli in everything. I love it as a replacement
for lettuce in salads. It’s got more body, it’s got more texture. To that we’re going to add some carrots and then some beautiful mango. I buy my edamame beans frozen and then just steam them really quickly. They add such good bite to the salad. Our final step would be just to top it with a little bit of green onion. Okay, just bringing in some of those nice Asian flavor. Put on the lid, and look at that. That is lunch, baby. I absolutely love this fresh
and fruity salad in a jar because it is sweet and colorful and such a pleasure to eat. The base of it is going to be my blackberry balsamic vinaigrette. Now, the recipe is listed
in the description below or on the domestic geek dot com. You could use balsamic
vinaigrette for this. Strawberries and balsamic vinegar are an excellent combination. And to that we’re going to
start layering our flavors. I have some candied pecans
that are going in first because they can sort of
withstand the dressing. On top of that, I’m going
to add some gorgeous fresh cut strawberries, some blueberries, a little bit of red onion, layer in some goat cheese which is my very favorite and then with whatever room I have left in goes the lettuce. Let’s be serious, the fruit is the star of the show in this salad. So, I’m not afraid. I’m not gonna overdo is on the lettuce. Close the lid, put this guy in the fridge and it’ll be good for a couple days. So, for this gorgeous Greek
inspired salad in a jar we’re going to start
with some Greek dressing. Now, you could totally
use the store-bought stuff that will work but I actually whipped up a little bit of my own
creamy Greek dressing in a mason jar. The recipe is in the description below and also on the domestic geek dot com if you want to make it yourself or like I said, any store-bought
Greek dressing will do. So, we’re gonna start with
our dressing on the bottom. Now, the reason we do this is because we don’t want our
ingredients getting soggy. To that, we’re going to add some beautiful kalamata olives. Some people don’t love olives. If you don’t love olives, don’t add them. Then some chopped red onion, some beautiful Greek feta, grape tomatoes, cucumber, and then we’re gonna top it all off with some yellow bell pepper. There it is, your salad in a jar. This is the perfect lunch. When you’re ready to eat it you just shake it all up. All of these amazing recipes are available in the description below or of course on the domestic geek dot com.

just like these guys and happy lunching.

    hi I love your videos but I would like to clarify something incorrect you said about vegetarians…. we vegetarians don't eat eggs or fish because eggs and fish are still animals. so the salad that is "veg" and protein packed (which is it ) isn't vegetarian.

    "lettuce is just filler" YES for that 🙂 i'm gonna try these recipes

  30. Rose Marrie says:

    The soybeans have a lot of lectin which are not good for you. I would use Nappa cabbage. Soybeans cause inflammation. Otherwise the asian salad looks great.

  31. Rose Marrie says:

    Great salads. However the potato and soybeans are not good for people who have inflammation issues. I would omit them and use something different that does not cause people to get sick. Please look at the nutrition information on what you put in your salads before saying they are healthy.

  42. Mahal Na Mahal says:

  59. Deborah Lorraine says:

  60. Wynter Rose says:

    This is NOT healthy if you're using Honey in your dressing, Eggs, Ham, Cooked Bacon, Tuna. Animals are NOT food.

    Terrified Pigs being Slaughtered:

    When you buy eggs know that thousands of male chicks are abused and ground alive. Eggs are a Chickens Period!

    Goat Cheese?
    Thousands of baby male goats are slaughtered when they are about a week old. Female goats are taken from their mothers and kept in pens so that YOU can eat your Goat Cheese. Again…. ANIMALS are not our FOOD.

    This can all be made 100% Vegan.

  61. ミコちゃん says:

    She: puts sauce only on the botom of the jar.

  62. Rica says:

    Thank you for sharing your ideas . I love these ideas

  63. bye bye says:

    I would like all of these cut with dark, leafy greens. Beautiful but for me there's just way too much density of ingredients as they. I'd probably make them in jars half the size as that size could easily feed 3

  64. Colton Yenne says:

    I like a lot of the things you do, but this is not one of them.

  65. Nova Generation says:

    Onions and Strawberries no thanx

    I LOVE mason jars!!! Always need more ways to use them.

  67. Crisalsera says:

    I wonder how do you eat those salads out of the jar? I have made some of these and they taste fantastic but always have to pour them into a plate

  68. 2020 Crabtree says:

    "The Domestic Geek" you crack me up with your upbeat attitude. You'd make one eat even what they don't like to eat. I like your recipes very much. I just don't like the mix of fruits and veges in a meal due to fermentation. Otherwise, you are doing great with your COLORFUL and ATTRACTIVE presentations. I like that your kitchen is clean as well. Good job, girl!
