mason jar salad
  • 1 1/3 cup pear, chopped
  • 3/4 cup red onion, sliced
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 3 ounce greens, such as organicgirl supergreens
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  1. To make the salads, divide the dressing, pear, onion, pomegranate arils, quinoa, walnuts, and salad mix between 4 medium-sized mason jars, layering in that order. Cover the jars and place in refrigerator until ready to serve. When ready to serve, pour the ingredients from the jar into the bowl, mix to blend and enjoy. The jars will keep for 2-3 days. If you prefer, reserve the dressing on the side and add just prior to serving.
  2. To make the maple cider vinaigrette, in a small bowl whisk the olive oil, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, and apple cider vinegar. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
