Salad jars are the way to go! Simple, delicious and packed-perfectly, salad jars help keep your ingredients fresh all week. Of all the meal prep recipes I try, I always come back to this simple style. Below is video of how to put it together – super easy!

 

 

My kitchen may be messy but my food is always clean. By layering the ingredients properly and packing it tight, salad jars keep your ingredients fresh and keep the lettuce from getting soggy.

Layers bottom to top:

Balsamic vinaigrette
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
1 cup zoodles (spiralized Melissa’s Produce zucchinis)
1/2 – 1 cup sliced cucumber
3/4 cup shredded chicken
1 cup spinach

Mix in match your favorite ingredients for an epic salad jar!

Want to make the best shredded chicken?

Here’s how to make shredded chicken (makes 4 servings): 
Ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
16 oz chicken breast
Flavorgod seasoning
Garlic powder
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth (or enough to cover chicken)
Directions:
Place chicken in pan with broth, seasoning and olive oil.
Bring to boil and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Cover and leave heat on low.
Continue to cook for another 45-75 minutes or until chicken shreds when you use a fork.
To shred chicken, it’s easiest while warm/ Use two forks to pull the chicken apart.

Hope the helps. Let me know if you have any questions!

  • I’v been making salad jars for a long time but have never tried them with zoodles! In my experience, zoodles put off quite a bit of moisture. Do these jars get soggy? Thanks!
