Chickpea Cucumber and Tomato Mason Jar Salad

Chickpea Cucumber and Tomato Mason Jar Salad

This is really good and really simple. The ingredients are all water-based, so they feel very fresh when you eat them. For this one, it’s super important that everything gets layered correctly: who wants soggy veggies? Even better, there’s really only prep work and layering; no cooking required.

This recipe creates four salads.

  • Two cups chickpeas, cooked
  • Two cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Two cups cucumbers, diced
  • One cup parsley, chopped
  • Two c quinoa, cooked
  • 8 c arugula

Start with the dressing for this one. Go to chapter 6, and whisk together all the ingredients for our maple syrup Dijon mustard. Now that you’ve done that, set out four mason jars. Evenly divide the dressing between them. Evenly divide and add the rest of the ingredients to the jars in the following order: chickpeas, cucumbers, tomatoes, quinoa, parsley, and arugula. They will last for about four days in the fridge, and when it’s lunchtime, pour contents of jar into a bowl and mix around. Enjoy!

That’s all I have right now for salads, but as you can see, there are so many different variations, and there is no reason why you can’t do your own experimentation. There are plenty of recipes just waiting to be discovered out there and always remember: salads are definitely not boring.

And that’s what we have for lunch. All of these meals are easy to put together and are delicious, nutritious, and will absolutely be the highlight of your day. Eat up!

For dressing, use our maple syrup dijon dressing

Maple Syrup Dijon Dressing

This dressing has a perfect mix of sweetness and sour, with the mustard and the maple syrup. Yum!

  • Four tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of two lemon
  • Two tsp maple syrup
  • Two tsp dijon mustard
  • One-half tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl.

That’s pretty much all there is for salad dressings that I have for you, but again, this is your opportunity to be creative. Try other things! If there is an herb mash-up that you love but don’t see here, try mixing it together. If there is a store-bought dressing that you love that isn’t vegan, look into creating your own version. The sky’s the limit!
