Salad in a Jar – Mexican Style!

A salad in a jar seems to be all the rage these days. I suppose I’ll hop on the bandwagon and try it out. And of course, I’m going to make a MEXICAN SALAD!!


So this is what I did, I layered: vinaigrette, sliced red onions, chopped avocado, diced tomatoes, black bean and corn quinoa, and chopped romaine lettuce.

For the vinaigrette:


  • the juice of half a lime
  • about 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin and onion powder
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • a few dashes of red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. honey

* Just mix all the ingredients together and pour into the bottom of the jar. Layer the rest of the ingredients on top.


I only made one, just to see how it will go. I’m a little apprehensive. I’ll update with the results!

Check out the update!!
