Jar Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette
Tropical flavors of mango and citrus complement black beans in this colorful and refreshing salad!

Did you know… Avocados are considered a “Super Food” because they are so rich in nutrients, vitamins and minerals. They are also a good source of monounsaturated fatty acids and are low in sugar.

Use store-bought dressing or choose from these amazing homemade dressings, the citrus vinaigrette is the perfect dressing for this salad!

Note: This recipe calls for two wide-mouth, quart size mason jars. If you don’t have any, you may use any other container of choice, but keep in mind your salad will stay fresh for longer if it’s in a glass container.
Adjust serving size: 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup whole grain quinoa precooked & cooled
  • 1/2 avocado - ripe but firm sliced
  • 1/2 mango - ripe but firm sliced
  • 4 oz cooked black beans drained & rinsed
  • 1/4 cup red onion sliced thin

How to Make:

  1. Begin by preparing the quinoa & black beans {if making from scratch}. They can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Fill your jars - adding half of the ingredients to each jar.
    Start with the spinach, then layer in order of {cooked & cooled} quinoa, mango, avocado, black beans, and then top with red onion.
    Tip: If you plan to eat straight from the jar, leave about an inch of room at the top so you have room to shake the ingredients before eating.
  3. When ready to eat, add your dressing of choice, shake well and eat straight from the jar {or transfer to a salad bowl}.

Notes:

The dressing can be prepared in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to use.
