My Go-To Salad in a Jar Lunch is super easy and super quick with a nutritious boost to fuel the craziest of days!
Since completing and having such awesome results on the 21 Day Fix EXTREME, I’ve made it a top priority to stay focused on healthy eats and portion control. Grabbing a jar brimming with veggies and tasty Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Grilled Chicken Breast Strips is the perfect way to stay on track.
I typically reserve a few hours on Sunday for meal planning and prep. It makes the week so much easier when I have lunches and snacks prepared and a few easy dinners planned out. I first got on board with the “salad in a jar” trend last year and found creating salad jars so helpful, I created one of the most popular posts on the blog, a tutorial for making the ultimate salad in a jar.
This particular go-to salad in a jar lunch recipe is quite simple- with a few veggie add-ins, a flavorful dressing and protein-rich Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Grilled Chicken Breast Strips you’ve got a meal you’ll be anxious to dig into. I especially enjoy the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breast in my salad jar!
I picked up Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Grilled Chicken Breast Strips on my grocery haul to Walmart. Tyson® makes creating a delicious and healthy meal easy with these 98% fat free, fully-cooked chicken strips. A figure-friendly protein source ready-to-go lickety split!
- 1-2 tablespoons dressing or extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice*
- 1/2 cup veggies- grape tomatoes diced zucchini, sliced carrot
- 1-2 cups fresh greens- spinach romaine, kale
- 3/4 cup diced Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breast
- 1/4 cup diced avocado**
- In a large mason jar (or other container), add all ingredients in the order listed. Start with dressing and end with avocado. See my salad jar tutorial for more specifics.
- Cover jar or container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
- When you’re ready to eat, vigorously shake jar. Or if you prefer, your Mason jar salad can be poured into another container; like a big bowl. I pack things pretty tight with tons of veggies in my jar, but when I shake it up, the dressing is still able to coat all of the veggies. Enjoy straight from the jar!
