Thanks to nutrition Expert Alexis Joseph, we have a delightfully simple and fresh salad that we can easily pack for lunch: Quinoa, pear, and spinach salad in jar.
- 2 tbsp maple balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/2 large ripe pear, diced
- 2 tbsp pecans, chopped
- 2 tbsp chopped red onion
- 2 tbsp dried cherries
- 2-3 cups baby spinach
- 1 quart size (32oz) mason jar
Layer the salad opposite as you would in an actual bowl,
Oh the mason jar. A salad’s best traveling companion for those workday lunches. Simple and tasty go a long way! Just pour it into a bowl when you’re good and ready!
