Rainbow salad in a Jar

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Ok, ok I confess it is not very creative that I am posting two food  related posts in a row. But I felt like sharing this one! This Rainbow salad is so simple to make, uses left over veggies, is healthy  and looks so colorful.

For this Rainbow Salad you will need some ( FYI you are free to add as much or as little as you want of these ingredients. :

  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Carrots
  • Peas
  • Quinoa
  • Lime
  • Pepper
  • Salt

Cook the quinoa as per instructions. For extra flavor I cooked my quinoa in some vegetable stock. Layer all your different components in the jar. Make sure that your quinoa has cooled down. Create a dressing with some lime juice and add salt and pepper to taste and drizzle over your salad in a jar.


I can imagine creating this one with couscous, Beetroot, Feta cheese and cucumber, mint and  a dressing of lime, salt and pepper.  I have not created that one yet but the flavors should work.

I hope you all liked this post. For my last post click here.  And as always please feel free to leave a comment. Until next post friends!
