Qinoa and EdamameMason Jar Salad Recipe

This just looks so healthy and good! Have wanted to try a mason jar salad for awhile, but this one really caught my eye.  This was lunch yesterday and WOW  soooo good don't know what took me so long to try one of these salads. Everyone at work was completely intrigued and I ended up sharing. (good thing I wasn't to hungry)  If you haven't yet  tried  a mason jar salad I would highly recommend this recipe.

  • 1 to 1 1/4 cups Simply Dressed® Balsamic Salad Dressing
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups cooked red or white quinoa
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1 1/2 cup edamame, thawed
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots or dates or a mix of
  • 1 cup crumbled queso fresco, goat or feta cheese,
  • 4 to 6 cups favorite salad greens
Transfer each grain to a separate bowl. Toss each with 2 tablespoons Simply Dressed® Balsamic Salad Dressing and season each with salt and pepper to taste.
Line up individual large mason jars or choose one large glass bowl and begin to layer the salad as desired. For the large bowl serving option, pour the remaining dressing over the assembled salad and with the aid of chopstick, gently open spaces to allow the dressing to seep into the salad. If using individual mason jars, place 2 tablespoons of dressing in the bottom of each jar. Leave 1 1/2” open space at the top of each jar. To serve, secure lid and shake the mason jar to distribute the dressing.
