This started as a chickpea, brussels sprout & lentil salad. I’ve got this thing for brussels sprouts lately and have to have them with everything. Almost. With lots of options in my fridge, I decided to try my hand at a Salad in a Jar. What a great idea to prepare in advance and take for lunch or a picnic. This salad tasted better the next day.
It turned out so well I decided to throw another recipe into the hat for the Canadian Lentils Contest. With 5 categories to enter, I’ve already entered my Berry Lentil Smoothie into “Freestyle”. This might be the last one I enter before the contest deadline, just not sure yet.
With this salad I added in some zucchini, Ned Bell ocean-wise tuna, spinach, pepitas, and we were on our way to my version of Salad In A Jar. To learn how to roast chickpeas click on this recipe: Roasted Cauliflower & Chick Peas. Use any spice you like or none at all. Salt & pepper roasted chick peas are equally delicious.
You don’t have to use matching jars either, use any jars you can find just adjust quantities for the size of the jar.
