Greek Yogurt Poppy Seed Dressing

  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Salad Ingredients

  • 2 cups 1/2-inch diced butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
  • 23 cups shredded Brussels Sprouts
  • 4 cups shredded kale
  • 1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
  • 4 quart-sized mason jars, wide mouth preferred


  1. Roast Squash. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Add diced squash to a baking sheet, toss with the tablespoon of oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to combine then spread in an even layer. Space between the diced squash helps them get nice and roasted vs steaming. Roast in preheated oven for about 20 minutes, stirring halfway, until tender and lightly browned on the edges. Allow to cool completely before assembling salads.
  2. Cook Farro. Meanwhile cook the farro according to package directions. Allow cooked farro to coo
  3. Mix Dressing. Either by mixing in a medium bowl or by shaking in a jar, mix together the poppy seed dressing. Depending on the thickness of your greek yogurt, and your preference, you can add a splash of water to thin the dressing out.
  4. Assemble Salads. Divide the dressing among the four jars. Follow by dividing the farro and then the squash. Next add the pomegranate arils then the shredded Brussels sprouts and the kale. Top with the pumpkin seeds. Add lids to jars and store in the fridge
  5. Enjoy. When ready to serve, let a jar sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to warm up. Then dump contents into a large bowl and toss well.


Mason Jar Salads can be stored in the fridge for 4-5 days
