Turkey Taco Salad in a Jar

Print Friendly, PDF & Email



Do you like to pack a salad for lunch but hate either having it end up soggy from the dressing or having too many containers?  Well then, salad in a jar is the answer for you!

The secret is in the layering.  By putting the dressing in first and the greens in last, the salads stays fresh and crisp for days.  When you are ready to eat it, simply invert into a bowl and mix it up.

This delicious salad combines crave-able taco flavors with low fat and high protein ingredients.  The perfect lunch for a busy day.

I  don’t often used packaged dressings or sauces but sometimes you find something so good, it just doesn’t make any sense to make it from scratch.  If you haven’t tried the Rick Bayless line of taco sauces for Fronterra Foods, you are missing out.  My favorite is the New Mexico Taco Skillet Sauce which perfectly complements ground turkey burger.

This recipe is simply a guide – mix and match ingredients to suit your tastes, just be sure to layer in the order listed to retain the freshness.
