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 
Yield: 5
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


  1. Prep the ingredients: chop the cucumber and onion, cut the tomatoes in half, cut the lemon into quarters. 
  2. Layer the ingredients evenly across 5 8oz mason jars in this order: dressing, tomatoes, onion, cucumber, cheese. Squeeze some lemon juice throughout the layers. 
  3. Store upright in the fridge and enjoy all week long!
