This High Protein vegan Salad Jar is a wonderful combination of sweet, savory and tangy which will leave you and your guests super satisfied!
Salad jar recipes are my all time favorite HACK to help you save time in the kitchen so that you are free to spend more time with family and friends.
They can last for 3-5 days in the in fridge depending on the ingredients and how they are stacked.
Here are my Tips for making them taste delicious and last longer….
🍋 Always add your dressing at the bottom and your leaves on the top. That way your leaves don’t get all soggy. 😌
🥔Next add your veggies that don’t contain as much water, like beans and veggies containing more starch.
🍤Then add your protein and grains.
🥑 Additional fats or toppings like avocado and nuts last.
I prefer to leave out ingredients such as fresh onion (as I believe they should be used when cut) and add more flavour with ginger and garlic through my salad dressings.
