Servings 1 jar

Ingredients

For the dressing:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard or more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • black pepper to taste

For the salad:

  • 1/4 cup dry quinoa I used a multicolor mix
  • 1/2 large cucumber cubed
  • 2 medium tomatoes cubed
  • 1/4 small red onion chopped
  • 3 tbsp cubed feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup fresh oregano leaves or other greens

Instructions

Make the dressing:

  • Add all dressing ingredients to a jar with a screw-on lid and shake until creamy.

Make the salad:

  • Cook the quinoa according to package instructions. Cool completely before assembling the salad!
  • In a minimum 34 ounce mason jar, layer the salad as follows:
    Dressing, cucumber, tomatoes, quinoa, onion, feta, olives, greens.
  • Close the jar, making sure it is sealed tightly. It should keep in the fridge for 4-5 days if prepped with clean utensils, clean jars and washed ingredients, but use your common sense if the salad does end up not smelling fresh anymore.

Notes

Recipe is for one jar so you can easily scale up as needed. Just change the serving number in the recipe and it will automatically adjust the ingredient amounts!
