Greek Salad In A Jar

Filled with all the good stuff, this Greek salad in a jar combines tomatoes, kalamata olives, onions, and feta cheese with a nice light homemade dressing. Simply add the dressing to the jar, layer the ingredients in the jar and then store in the fridge until ready to eat. Perfect for a grab-n-go lunch and great for meal prepping a couple of salads at a time without them going limp and soggy.

Ingredients

Dressing

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp honey
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

Greek Salad

  • ½ cup Cucumber, sliced
  • cup red bell pepper diced
  • cup black kalamata olives sliced
  • cup red onion chopped
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes quartered
  • cup feta cheese crumbled

Instructions

  • Add the dressing ingredients to a small jar and give a good shake to combine (see notes re when to add the dressing as this will depend on when you plan to eat the salad).
  • Place the salad ingredients in the order they are listed, in even layers, inside the jar. 
  • Store in the fridge, covered, for up to 4 days (see notes).
  • When ready to serve, add the dressing, give the salad a good shake, and enjoy.

Notes

  • If you are planning to eat the salad that day then you can add the dressing to the bottom of the jar. If you are making multiple salads to be eaten over a few days you should store the dressing separately and just add when serving.
  • Do not freeze this salad. It will be very gross once defrosted.
  • You can easily add more of the veggies you enjoy and reduce or remove the ones you don’t like.
