Think of this bright and citrusy salad as like taco salad light! I like to add a whole bunch of avocado just before serving. Cilantro hater? No worries, just leave it out.

I love the combo of this fiesta lime salad in a jar with black bean soup in a jar because it’s a cozy and warm meal like I always crave in winter, but it’s packed full of bright summery flavor. It’s like the best of both worlds!

Tomatoes can be pretty lackluster in the wintertime, but I have better luck buying cherry tomatoes throughout the year than the big tomatoes. Something about those little beauties seems to keep them from succumbing to the January pink, mealy tomato disease that infects their bigger cousins.

Fiesta Lime Salad in a Jar

Yield: 2 servings (2 pint-size Mason jars)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Think of this bright and citrusy salad as like taco salad light! I like to add a whole bunch of avocado just before serving. Cilantro hater? No worries, just leave it out.

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons chili-lime salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1/4 cup fresh minced cilantro
  • 4-6 cups mixed lettuce and greens (I usually just pick whatever is on sale that week)

Instructions

  1. Divide the ingredients evenly between two wide-mouth pint-size Mason jars. Make sure to follow the order listed in order to keep the lettuce crisp.
  2. Stuff in as much lettuce as you can, screw on lid, and stash in fridge for up to a week.

Notes

You can add fresh chopped avocado and crumbled cotija cheese right before serving. Yum!
