Red White and Blue Mason Jar Salad July 02 2018, 0 Comments

In honor of the America's birthday this week, I decided to make a patriotic salad. It's very quick to prepare and would be the perfect addition to a 4th of July party.

Prep time: 20 mins 
Yield: 5
Serving Size: 1 16oz mason jar


  • 4 cups of spinach
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 cup dry red quinoa
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans 
  • 5 oz balsamic vinaigrette 


  1. Start by cooking the quinoa: bring the 1/2 cup of quinoa and 1 cup of water to a boil and then cover and let sit for 15 mins or until nice and fluffy. Refrigerate until cool.
  2. Cut the strawberries into bite size pieces. 
  3. Layer the ingredients evenly across 5 mason jars in this order: dressing, strawberries, quinoa, feta cheese, blueberries, spinach, pecans.
  4. Store upright in the fridge and enjoy all week long.
