Mediterranean Mason Jar Salad

saladDo you have a mason jar yet? Mason jar salads are super easy to make the night before and transport with you the next day. When ready for lunch, just dump into a bowl and enjoy!  If you layer it properly, nothing gets soggy.

This is a salad recipe that originated from my friend Melissa and I created this with what I had and what sounded good.

I love chickpeas because they are filled with fiber and really do fill you up for awhile.

The key to this is layering as it so nothing gets soggy.


1st layer: Dressing (combine 3 ingredients in separate bowl & whisk together)

  •  1 tbsp. hummus
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice (fresh)
  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil

2nd layer: Chickpeas

  • 1/3 cup chickpeas

3rd layer: Veggies

  • 1/4 cup red pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup cucumber, chopped

4th layer: Feta

  • 3 tbsp feta, crumbled

5th layer: Greens – packed and smashed in. Mine seemed full but I was able to smash a decent amount of spinach at the top.

  • 1-2 handfuls Spinach (whatever you can get in the top)
