Layered Jar Salad

This salad was inspired by a recipe I saw on Oh She Glows which in turn was inspired by a salad at Wholefoods. Jars just make them look cute and show off the layering but of course it tastes just as good all mixed together :)
I used a Wasabi Lime Dressing but you can use whatever you like - this was not included in the calorie count.
Obviously you can use whatever grains and vegetables you love but the calorie count will differ :)

Layered Jar Salad
Makes 4 large jars
Calories per serve: 361


1 cup cooked brown rice
2 cups cooked quinoa
2 cups kale, chopped
3 medium carrots, diced
2 cups edamame, cooked
2 large tomatoes, diced


Use sterilized jars and layer your ingredients.
Kale at the bottom is good because the heavier grains will push it down to make more room.
Drizzle over desired dressing and serve.
So cute for picnics!

Wasabi Dressing


1 tsp wasabi paste
juice of 1 lime
1 tsp agave
2 Tbls olive oil


Whisk together or put into a jar and shake well.
