Jar salads

I like this lunch idea and have been taking salad at least three times a week.
I got an inexpensive plastic shaker container with fork and dressing container that nestle with. It has been so easy!
Prepare the night before and combine leftovers from your evening meal if possible.

What great ideas have you tried?
I would love to hear about fruit fusions I haven't tried etc.
I love grains like quinoa mixed in too!

1. The other days try steamed veggie combos over quinoa or rice (I am lazy and mostly use frozen)

3. Good idea

That can be made from leftovers and taken in the same container. Thank you!

2. De- (un-) constructed sushi sounds like a natural for that.

Leftover rice, meat, veggies given a new life with a few extra evocative ingredients and a dressing that could be mixed up ahead. I love excuses to add in wasabi and sesame, and they and so many other possibilities are reliable pantry ingredients, like nori sheets. Pickled ginger, if you like it, seems to last almost forever in the fridge.

We also really like Trader Joe's Brown Rice Medley as a wonderful, very textural base for grain salads, or the above. Brown rice and black barley & Daikon radish seeds.

4. Brilliant!

Almost always have some sticky rice in the frig! Why not cook 4 c in the cooker when ya only want/need two? Reheats well usually.
Would need to get the wasabi and pickled ginger and since I live on the coast i have excellent choices of protein!
WAY less expensive than my sushi splurges too I am betting!
Thank you!
