Description

These Mason Jar Salad Recipes with Homemade Ranch are perfect for Meal Prep!  I have two different salad ideas, but you can mix and match your favorite toppings!  Enjoy!


Ingredients

Scale

For the Salads: 

Mixed greens – kale, spinach, and romaine are my favs

½ lb of chicken, cooked and diced (I grill them or bake for 30 minutes on 350)

small head of broccoli, chopped

1 pint of cherry tomatoes, halved

nitrate free turkey bacon – you will need 8 slices, cooked and diced

matchstick carrots 

3 T of diced cheddar (optional!  I make this all the time with no cheese!)

For the Ranch Dressing: 

1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt (2% for the Fix and 0% for WW)

1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1/2 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

1/4 teaspoon dried dill or 1 teaspoon fresh 

1 teaspoon fresh chives

freshly ground black pepper

**if it’s too thick, you can add a little bit of water or milk to dilute


Instructions

Mix ingredients for dressing, then set aside.  Begin layering salads in the following order:

BLT 

(layer in this order)

⅛ cup of ranch dressing

½ cup chopped broccoli

½ cup grape tomatoes

4 slices of turkey bacon, crumbled

1 cup spinach or salad greens

Chicken Veggie Ranch 

(layer in this order)

⅛ cup ranch dressing

⅓ cup matchstick carrots

⅓ cup chopped broccoli

⅓ cup chopped cherry tomatoes

3/4 cup diced chicken

3 T diced cheddar (optional!  I make this all the time with no cheese!)

1 cup spinach or salad greens

Store jars in the fridge for up to 4 days. Remove from fridge and keep out for a few minutes before eating, then shake up the jar to distribute the dressing! Enjoy!

**This recipe will yield 4 salads – two of each kind!
