Mason Jar Salad: Thai Peanut Salad


Mason Jar Salad

We have a really fun give away coming up, check back you don’t want to miss it.

This post is the sequel to the Thai Peanut Dressing that I am demoing tomorrow on Studio 5.   Correction on the time it is actually at 11-12.

After the give away I promise to get back to posting a few more quinoa recipes, maybe one in a mason jar like this post! I haven’t forgotten!

Have you seen the mason jar salads that have exploded on Pinterest?  They are such an ingenious idea. You  take your favorite salad and layer all of the ingredients  in a mason jar.  Starting with the dressing on the bottom and ending up with the lettuce.   When you are ready to eat the salad you just shake it all up.   Salads that are portable and not soggy!!  That is my kind of salad.   I am thinking this would be perfect for picnics, pool outings, hikes……pretty much any outing this summer this would be fantastic to take this salad along.  Plus it looks so pretty all layered in the glass jar.  If you are going to take it with you I would use tofu or just leave it out all  together.

Mason jar salads would work with quinoa salads, green salads, and noodle salads.  I tried it out on my favorite Thai peanut salad and it worked like a charm!  This salad is my version of  Our Best Bites.

    we just made this for dinner – so amazing! the dressing is amazing! I can’t believe how many veggies we just ate and we didn’t even mind. Thanks so much!

    I was just wondering how many mason jar salads this makes, and what size. I’m doing some meal prep ahead and need to know how to portion out the items. Thanks!

    I’m a little confused because the recipe calls for tofo or chicken, but I don’t see anywhere in the instructions how to prepare them or where in the salad jar they go. Also, the instruction say something about corn but they are not in the ingrediant list. Am I missing something?
