Fruits or vegetables jar salads are certainly more tantalizing than those served in plastic containers. They can include all kinds of fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and so on. Since we eat with our eyes first, such presentation can also be more appetizing, if well-put together.
I recently enjoyed a store-bought vegetables and quinoa jar. I transferred it to a plate the best way I could. The result was certainly not as neatly designed as a plated salad would be, I thought. That said, the ingredients were fresh, crunchy, colorful and still attractive. The downside that I experienced was the lack of seasonings.
So, if you prepare any, I suggest you consider adding some
- Fresh herbs
- Nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts or cashews)
- Wheat germ
- Goji berries
They will add lots of flavors, great antioxidants and vitamins as well.
And remember: always keep the salad dressing separate, as it promotes quick spoilage.
