Lemon Chickpea & Quinoa Mason Jar Salads
Are you really a millennial if you don’t use mason jars for everything? They may be basic and trendy, but I’m okay with that. These Lemon Chickpea & Quinoa Mason Jar Salads are the perfect meatless, vegan, healthy meal prep. Just a simple lemon salad dressing, chickpeas, chopped cucumber and tomatoes, topped with a little fresh parsley and LOTS of arugula. Holy fresh, light, healthy, and filling weekday lunch.
Mason Jar Salads are perfect to pack for lunch at work. When ready to eat, all you need to do is dump into a bowl or plate and you’re good to go. No reheating needed, nothing. This makes a BIG salad! On top of the volume, you get lots of protein from the chickpeas and quinoa to really fill you up. No 3pm hunger cravings here! If you’re not vegetarian or limiting your meat, you can certainly add chicken or another protein of your choice to really amp up the meal.
Have I mentioned how easy these Mason Jar Salads are to throw together? In the time it takes the quinoa to cook, you’ll be able to chop up your cucumber and tomatoes and even mix up the easy lemon salad dressing. Heck, you’ll have time to spare!
