Thai Chicken Salad In A Jar

Thia Chicken Salad In A Jar

Meal prepping some layered salads in a jar  will save you a ton of time during the week and ensure that you are filling your body with nourishing, yummy, whole foods.


  • Number 1 rule and the MOST important rule…. be sure to put the dressing on the bottom. This guarantees that your salad ingredients won’t get soggy and wilted.
  • Next add in any grains, beans, pasta and or meat.
  • Top with the fixings,  nuts, seeds, dried fruit or cheese. Pretty much anything that you want to keep dry.
  • Final layer is the leafy greens, kale, spinach, romaine, etc.
  • Place on a secure lid and store in the fridge until ready to eat ~ I normally make about 3-5 days worth of salads for lunch.
  • Simply pour onto a plate or into a bowl and voila lunch is ready!!


  • Thai peanut dressing (recipe below)
  • Cooked brown spouted rice
  • Grilled chicken breast (chopped)
  • Snap peas (halved)
