KALE AUTUMN SALAD IN A JAR

autumn-salad-in-a-jar-4

A salad in a jar is one of our favorite lunches. Besides being super healthy and loaded with nutritious ingredients, it’s awfully pretty to look at.

Our autumn inspired salad in a jar uses butternut squash, quinoa, chickpeas, kale, pomegranate seeds, and a delicious herb vinaigrette. Another great thing about making salad in a jar is that you can prep it in advance. Our recipe makes enough for two lunches and can be made 1-3 days in advance. We love whipping these up so we know we’re covered for lunch – it’s much easier to pass up a burger and fries when lunch is already to go.
