A bagged salad, leftover rotisserie chicken and a few other simple ingredients make for an easy salad. This recipe packs perfectly in lunchboxes or layered in a mason jar for mom or dad.
To assemble these salads in mason jars (like all those pretty mason jar salad you see on Instagram), add your dressing to the bottom then layer your dryer ingredients on top – your salad greens, veggies and protein.
Nutrition Tip: By varying your protein routine and combining protein sources [like chicken, chickpeas, and eggs in this recipe], you are ensuring your body is functioning at it’s highest energy level.
When ready to eat, just shake shake shake it up! If you’re packing in a lunchbox, we love these small dressing containers for liquids. These silicone liners are also great for separating out wetter ingredients to keep your salad from getting soggy.
