Mason Jar Greek Salad – “A Salad For Each Week” #39

When it comes to food, presentation can make the difference between “giving it a try” or “pushing it aside”. Here is a prime example of an eye-pleasing salad. Last week, I packed Aleyah a layered Greek salad in a mason jar and sent it off in her ice pack laden-lunchbox. When she returned home, the salad was gone! (No, she didn’t throw it out 😛 ).

Mason Jar Greek Salad

  • 1/3 cup hummus

  • 1/2 cup spinach, chopped

  • 1/3 cup cucumber, chopped

  • 1/4 cup bell peppers, chopped

  • 1/4 cup tomatoes, diced

  • 1/4 cup black olives, chopped

  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt

Use an 8 oz jar. Salt the tomatoes and set aside. Place half the hummus on the bottom of the jar. Place half the spinach on top of the hummus, followed by half the black olives, all the peppers, and half the cucumbers. Layer with the remaining hummus, then spinach, black olives, cucumbers, and finally the salted tomatoes. (The salt draws out the moisture from the tomatoes making a “natural” dressing as it sits.) Seal and pack with ice packs or eat right away.
