Prep Salad Jar Ingredients

  1. Place the ingredients for the dressing in a blender and puree until creamy and smooth. Divide the dressing among 4 mason jars.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic cloves then cook for 5-6 minutes until translucent and soft. Stir in the chili powder, oregano, cayenne pepper, salt and fresh tomatoes. Cook for another 5 minutes until soft. Stir in the black beans and set aside until cool.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil a large skillet over medium heat. Add the potato cubes, then cook until seared on every side, about 4-5 minutes. When the potatoes are browned, reduce the heat to medium-low then cover with a lid and cook until tender, about 10-15 minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

Assemble Salad Jar

  1. Layer the various filling ingredients into the mason jars in this order on top of the avocado dressing: black bean mixture, sweet potatoes, 1 tablespoon salsa, ¼ cup quinoa, 1 tablespoon pepitas, and chopped romaine lettuce. Tighten the lid and place in the fridge. They will keep in the fridge for at 3-4 days.
