This salad in a jar recipe is a lifesaver! Pack leftover chicken, vegetables and herbs in a jar, whip up a yoghurt dressing then take to work or on the go for a fresh, healthy meal when you need it.


  • A few asparagus spears, blanched
  • Baby carrots, scrubbed and halved lengthways
  • A few radishes, sliced
  • 5 slices cucumber
  • A few cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 slice goat’s milk feta
  • Small handful roast almonds
  • ½ cup leftover cooked chicken or hot-smoked salmon
  • ½ peeled orange, sliced
  • Fresh herbs, micro greens and borage flowers (flowers optional)

Yoghurt Mint Dressing

  • ¼ cup plain yoghurt
  • Juice ½ lemon or orange
  • 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • Good pinch sugar
  • ½ cup freshly torn mint leaves

Before work, put salad ingredients in sealed container. Put dressing ingredients, plus salt and pepper to season, in a small jar with a tight-fitting lid. Refrigerate until needed.


At work, assemble salad. Shake jar and drizzle Yoghurt Mint Dressing over salad.
