I’m on a salad jar kick at the moment, I’m not going to lie. Last month, I published the Greek Salad In A Jar recipe post, and today it’s time for a Vegan Chipotle Salad In A Jar. I’m not going to pick a favorite since they are both my recipe children and that would be wrong, but this is a good one!
FYI!!! I’m currently collaborating with Reusetarian, the South African distributor of Le Parfait, and arranged a 15% discount code for all vegan meal preppers for the month of April on all their reusable products! Including the Le Parfait jars, I used for this salad prep. To enjoy the discount simply use the code #veganmealprep at checkout. If you have been meaning to invest in good quality meal prep containers and/or jars, this is your opportunity. In the spirit of full disclosure, if you purchase from their webshop, using my discount code, I will receive an affiliate commission on your purchase. Happy shopping!
How To Build The Perfect Jar Salad?
It’s all about the order of the ingredients! Add the dressing first. This ensures that the salad ingredients don’t get soggy. The remainder of the ingredients are layered from firm on the bottom to soft and delicate on top. The bottom ingredient not only needs to be firm but also non-absorbent so that it doesn’t soak up the dressing. In the context of this Vegan Chipotle Salad In A Jar, beans are the perfect bottom ingredient while lettuce and tortilla chips are best placed on top.
How Do You Eat A Vegan Chipotle Salad In A Jar?
When you are ready to eat your pretty salad, you can either just shake it up, and eat it straight from the jar! Alternatively, you can turn it up side down onto a plate. Your tortilla chips and lettuce will be at the bottom and the other ingredients on top. To make both options easy, make sure you choose a jar with a wide mouth!
