150 Best Meals in a Jar

Tanya Linton

You’ll never again eat another soggy lunch salad.

Canning jars are the perfect vessels for healthy and delicious salads. You simply put the dressing on the bottom, add layers of heavier or harder foods and then top with lighter ingredients, such as fresh leafy greens. Everything stays crisp and separate until you’re ready to dump the salad into a bowl, toss and enjoy.

These tempting and innovative recipes store well in the fridge, so you can make several days’ worth of lunches and/or dinners ahead of time. Then all you have to do is “grab and go” on those harried weekday mornings. Tanya has even created recipes for breakfasts, snacks, soups and desserts, as well as a chapter devoted to the ever-popular rice bowls.
You’re sure to enjoy the variety of options, from leafy green salads like Waldorf Salad, Asian Slaw with Honey Ginger Dressing or Layered Caprese Salad to heartier meals made with legumes, noodles or grains, such as Roasted Broccoli and Chickpea Salad, Roasted Pasta Puttanesca or Quinoa with Beets and Pomegranates.

And when you’re looking for a dessert idea for an office celebration or picnic, Pretty Pavlovas, Layered Cheater Chocolate Cheesecake and Banana Bread Parfait are sure to be a hit.

Meals in a jar are the ultimate "grab and go" meal!
