This salad makes the perfect meal on the go! Mason jars are great tupperware storage alternatives. I love using glass instead of plastic whenever possible. I first started making these types of salads when I wanted to switch up my work lunches. It’s a great way to get in tons of vegetables and make a healthy, fibre-packed, protein filled lunch that’s filling and very satisfying. Layering these vegetable colours looks gorgeous however you can use any vegetables you have on hand.
I place the dressing in the bottom of the mason jar before I’m ready to eat the salad and then when lunch time hits, give it a shake and it’s good to go! No soggy lettuce!
If you’re vegan or don’t eat dairy, simply omit the goats cheese. I recommend replacing it with chopped avocado for some added healthy fats.
