High Protein Jar Salad


vFor a filling and delicious lunch, you can’t go wrong with this High Protein Jar Salad. This salad is jam packed with healthy protein-filled ingredients like chickpeas, quinoa, lentils, seeds and alfalfa sprouts.

You can choose to cook the quinoa and lentils from scratch by bringing them to a boil in two separate saucepans. Quinoa cooks quicker than lentils so watch them. You want to make sure the cooked quinoa and lentils still have a bite. To assemble the salad, start by making a dressing. Pour the dressing into the bottom of a jar. Layer the ingredients into the jar in the following order: quinoa, sliced red pepper, tomatoes, lentils, grated carrot, spinach leaves, seeds, sprouts and chopped mint leaves. 

To make my version of High Protein Jar Salad, you will need the following ingredients:
