Israeli Mason Jar Salad February 28 2019, 0 Comments
An Israeli salad is a chopped vegetable salad. It's extremely easy to make (10 minutes total!), inexpensive, refreshing and delicious. It's also low in calories, and full of vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. It's usually dairy-fee, but I love feta cheese, so I included it here, but you could easily make it without that!
Usually on this blog, I post recipes for 16oz mason jar salads. That size is great when your mason jar salad is your entire meal. For this recipe, though, I switched things up and made an 8oz mason jar salad so that it can be more of a side salad. You can enjoy it alongside other Mediterranean foods such as falafel (as pictured), hummus, grilled fish, kebabs, shawarma, etc.
Here's my version of an Israeli salad:
Prep time: 10 mins
Serving Size: 1 8oz mason jar
- 1 cucumber
- 1 onion
- 1 lemon
- 1 1/2 grape tomatoes
- 1/2 cup feta cheese
- 5 oz olive oil & vinegar salad dressing
- Prep the ingredients: chop the cucumber and onion, cut the tomatoes in half, cut the lemon into quarters.
- Layer the ingredients evenly across 5 8oz mason jars in this order: dressing, tomatoes, onion, cucumber, cheese. Squeeze some lemon juice throughout the layers.
- Store upright in the fridge and enjoy all week long!
