Jar salads are one of my favorite things and this Chicken & Quinoa Jar Salad does not disappoint. So easy to prepare in advance and the chicken and quinoa in this salad make for a filling and delicious lunch.

Layer ingredients into a mason jar. Whisk balsamic vinegar and mustard to make a salad dressing. I usually place the dressing in a separate container to carry alongside the salad. When you are ready to eat, pour the dressing over the salad and enjoy!
