Hello, hello! I promised that I would be sharing a ton a salad recipes this summer and we are starting with an absolute favorite today! This Cranberry Pecan Quinoa Salad in a Jar is hands down a must try. All of the ladies at our salad parties agree that this salad is amazing and delicious. So here it is my friends…
When creating our weekly salads in a jar we simply toss ingredients in our jars without measuring really. So I am going to do my best to guess how much of each ingredient went into this salad. You can add or take away ingredients as you wish. I ate this with creamy yogurt dill dressing but you can simply add your favorite salad dressing. Many of the girls added strawberries to this for a delicious hint of sweet and salty. These salads travel well and are perfect for meal prepping lunches on the go.
- 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/4 cup diced cucumber
