Equipment

  • mixing bowl

Ingredients

For Salad:

  • ½ cup cooked cooled edamame
  • ½ cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 4 plum tomatoes diced
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint
  • ½ cup rotisserie chicken chopped
  • ½ cup sriracha shrimp
  • ½ cup carrots julienned
  • 1 cup of romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Dressing:

  • 1/2 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1/2 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare The Dressing

  • Gather all the ingredients needed for making the dressing.
  • In a small bowl, combine the gathered dressing ingredients.
  • Using a whisk or spoon, blend the ingredients together until they are fully combined and the dressing is smooth.

Step 2: Organize Mason Jars

  • Ensure that four Mason jars are clean and thoroughly dried.

Step 3: Distribute The Dressing

  • Divide the prepared dressing evenly among the four Mason jars, pouring it into the bottom of each jar.

Step 4: Layer The Salad Components

  • Layer the salad components into each jar in the specified order: cooked and cooled edamame, chopped bell pepper, shredded red cabbage, chopped scallions, diced plum tomatoes, chopped fresh mint, chopped rotisserie chicken, sriracha shrimp, julienned carrots, chopped romaine lettuce, and sesame seeds.

Step 5: Seal The Jars

  • Securely place the lids on each Mason jar, ensuring they are tightly sealed to prevent any leakage.

Step 6: Refrigerate

  • Store the sealed jars upright in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy the salad. Keeping them upright helps maintain the integrity of the layers and prevents the dressing from saturating the salad prematurely.

Step 7: Shake And Serve

  • When you’re ready to eat, remove a jar from the refrigerator, and give it a good shake to evenly distribute the dressing and ingredients. Open the jar and savor your delicious mason jar Asian salad!

Notes

  • To prevent sogginess, layer the dressing at the bottom of the jar and the sturdier ingredients at the top.
  • Use a wide-mouth mason jar for easy assembly and serving.
  • 3. Customize the salad by swapping out ingredients or adjusting the spice level of the dressing to suit your taste preferences.
  • Make a batch of mason jar salads at the beginning of the week for quick and convenient meals throughout the week.
  • Experiment with different protein options such as tofu, grilled pork, or beef to add variety to your salads.
